The packing has begun~
 Starting to feel like a trip to China might just happen.

Isaiah 43:5
Do not be afraid, for I am with you; 
I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. 


  1. It seems like this wait hasn't been nearly as long as the others. I'm sure it's easy for me to say that when I'm not the one actually doing the waiting. ;-) So happy for you that the time is almost here. Those two babies need to be with their forever family.


  2. Can you really be about to travel again? So excited! Come on TA!

  3. How exciting! You look like a professional packer to me!

  4. Hi! I just saw message you left on my blog and I would most definately love to share cookies with you, but I am sure you are crazy busy getting ready for Christmas and then your trip to China. Once the dust settles and everyone is adjusted we would love to head your way and share cookies. Maybe we could do an outing at the park. I finally got my home study document for review. Thank you for telling me to read it carefully. I found at least 20 errors. Some were major and some were minor, but I am glad I read it carefully. I am surprised they weren't caught at the office. Maybe she was too busy and knew I was waiting desperately so she just sent it forward. I am sure it is going to need a second reading given the number of errors. Hopefully, that will just take the weekend and we can get our 1-800 a sent out. Someone pointed out to me that maybe my child hasn't even been found yet or isn't even born and therefore i need to be patient because the Lord is picking out the very best child for our family. I have to keep telling myself that because I am horrible at waiting. I don't know which families find worst having a child and then doing the paperwork or doing the paperwork and getting matched. I suppose it is hard either way, but I am not very patient. My last baby as soon as I was 16 weeks along I was in that ultrasound room finding out her sex. I am so excited for your family. Do you think this will complete your family or do you think you might want to go back. We are all ready talking about number two. The only prob with our agency is that they don't list very many focus children. So unless we go with another agency the chance of bring home two at once are slim. I guess it means we will have to go back. We shall see what the Lord has planned. Oh, I love your little class room in your house. It is so amazing. I wish the Lord has blessed me with the ability to home school. My poor 5 year old is just dying having to get up at 6:20 am each day. He keeps asking to stay home. We don't know if it is the long school day or his heart. We are going to call cardiologist in the morning because the poor guy just doesn't want to seem to want to do anything. Happy to play with friends, but 8 out of 10 times when he comes home from school he is ready to crawl in bed. Once there he love it! Breaks this mommy's heart. God just didn't give me the patience to be a teacher and a mommy. I better go to bed now. Have a great weekend! I am sure you will be busy finishing up those suitcases and making arrangements for the other kiddos at home. Kelleyn
