Who's Going?

This has probably been the most asked question
and I am so sorry I haven't thought to share.
In our HEARTS, everyone is going~
 In 2006, all the bigs went~ Amazing!
In 2010, just EK went~ Precious!
This time we are taking Rosie and the littles~ Thankful!
We are hoping the big vs little ratio will work out well. :)
I am SO happy we will be able to Skype and Face Time
while we are there so J, S, & A feel connected.
We were SO blessed today to be prayed over once again
by our wonderful church family.
We also prayed for Shepherd's Field and sweet Will
as he waits to be a part of his forever family.

On the way home as Scott and I talked about the service,
my favorite song came on and confirmed even more
how ordained this whole journey has been.
I Lift my Hands to Him~

I woke with butterflies in my stomach this morning
and going to bed calm and peaceful.
Most everything is packed 
and we are pretty much ready.
The littles keep saying,
"We will trick-or-treat, go to bed,
and wake up to go to China?"
YES!!! Still can't believe it. :)

Psalm 46:10
 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
   I will be exalted among the nations,
   I will be exalted in the earth.”

  6. Excited for you guys and Loved hearing that your church family prayed over you.
