On our way to meet our daughter!
T minus 3 hours 45 minutes
I can’t believe that its almost time, in just under 4 hours we will meet our precious Emma Grace. (that’s between 7:45-8:15pm Texas time) Me and the girls are wide awake…who can sleep when your life is about to change forever? Jay can, thats who! Pray, pray, pray for Emma, in an hour she will be headed to Hefei (where we are, its the capital of her province) it will take her over 2.5 hours to get here. Also, pray for me and Amelia, we are so sleep deprived we are trying to get sick…pray for our congestion to be gone and for us all to sleep great tonight! McMot just asked that y’all pray that she gets back into the same class when we get home and that Amelia and Emma get along well. (I love this sweet girl!)
Soaking it up
I love China…I love the people, I love the culture, I love getting to spend time here.
The packing begins…
And this isn’t the half of it!
Not long now
In 10 short days all four of us will be on a jet plane bound for China! This is our schedule while we are there! I’ll have a massive prayer list as we get closer, but here are the majors you can be praying with us! Be praying for Emma to be ready for all of the crazy amount of love that […]
Adoption…It’s not just for superheroes
The shirts are in!!! When Jay and I sat down to talk through our t-shirt fundraiser, we initially set a goal to sell 50 t-shirts, which would help us raise around $750…which meant there would be further fundraising in order to hit our goal of $5,700, for our orphanage donation when we go to China. Last minute I changed it to 75 knowing it would be […]
Here we go again
Its been a while…sorry for that. Life tends to get in the way! But now seems like a perfect time to jump back into blogging. Just as we get Amelia out of diapers, we think its time to add to our crew. As most of you know, we are in the middle of our second adoption for our baby girl from […]
If you stopped by today…
If you stopped by today you would find: Food on the floor…in addition to cheerios strewn about! A layer of dust on most of our furniture. A pile of clothes that either needed to be washed or folded & put away. A pile of c.r.a.p. (McKayla we don’t say that word!) in my bedroom that still needs to be unpacked […]
In an effort to combat jet-lag, we are getting out of the house (our eyelids were getting too heavy). Our first outing as a family of four! Amelia isn’t so sure about the carseat…but she’ll get use to it! We are headed to Katy Mills so McKayla can bungee jump (euro style) and then dinner with our small group!
