Leaving as 3, Coming Home as 4!

We are now down to the day before we leave for Thailand and I can hardly believe it.  It seems like that in some ways the wait has been so long, but now time seems to be flying.  Phone calls to all the various governmental agencies, a couple of baby showers, packing frenzy chaos, etc. - all things leading up to our adventure to get our son.  We can hardly wait to hold our little son in our arms, but we will have to get the almost 23 hours of flying under our belt (NOT including layovers) and our few days of R&R in or as a I like to call it "jet lag recovery"  before we will finally meet him!   Tomorrow we leave as 3, but then we will be coming home as 4 with our precious son.  Please pray for our family.

Hi! I just found your blog through Kyle and Robin's. Congratulations on going to get your son! We adopted our teenage daughter from Thailand a little over two years ago. She was thirteen at the time. What an adventure! Isn't it a blessing to welcome a new child into your home! I wish you the best!

I am so excited for you. It's nice you get to head over and have some beach time. 10 more days till we hold our babies in our arms for the first time!
