It's time!


We are packed and ready to go. Our dog, Lucas and fish, Gold Tooth are with our awesome neighbors, Thanks Guys! We are leaving for Portland soon. We will drop G off with family and go to my sisters for the night, we need to be at the airport by 4 a.m.
I'm not sure if we will even go to sleep tonight. Not only am I not a early morning person, I'm not a good long trip car/plane rider, please wish Ames me luck.
We have waited for this day for over 3 years, it just doesn't seem real yet. We are both excited and nervous, worrying ourselves sick over what we may have forgot to pack, the weight of the bags, ect.

What has me the most worried is meeting Jadyn and how upset this entire life change is going to make her. Her grieving for her family at the orphanage is really going to tear at our hearts. We will do whatever we can to make this time the easiest for her.
I will try and update between flights tomorrow, we have a lay-over in LA and one in Tokyo.

I've been thinking about you guys. So very excited for you. Hope Jadyn does well, you never know! One thing we found out, for almost anything, if you forgot it you can find it there. Just ask your guide, they are (usually) quite helpful!

Can't wait to see/read your trip!

Yippee! I'm so very excited that you are leaving to meet Jadyn and bring her home. I am so looking forward to following your journey to China to bring your precious daughter home! Safe travels and lots of prayers coming your way.
