4 a.m. Wake-Up Call

We'll be off to China in the blink of an eye. Anyone want to volunteer to give us a 4 a.m. wake up call? :-)

It's been a whirlwind of a week with Emma & I sick all day Monday & Brian battling the same thing on Tuesday while also working. So far Ryan has escaped the "bug". For you prayer warriors ... please pray for him to keep it at bay. Nothing sounds worse to me than him getting sick on the plane! It seems like I've been going non-stop since Tuesday a.m. though with trying to get the house clean and getting things packed for 5 people. Goodness, that's a bigger chore than I expected!

Goodnight for now, we will be traveling all day tomorrow so it will be late Friday (China time) before I get a chance to send an update.

Thanks for following our journey!

I'm so excited for you guys Carolin. I can't wait to follow your journey to Rebecca. I'll be praying and sitting on the edge of my seat till you guys are a family of 5.

God Bless and Safe Travels!!!

I still can not believe that you all are already heading to China! It seems like just the other day you were telling me that you weren't getting your hopes up about adopting Rebecca -I can't wait to meet her!

I will pray for you all,and for Ryan to stay well. It seems odd for you guys to go to China with out us! How cool for Ryan to be able to say that he went twice!
Give Rebecca a big hug from the Nash's. I can't wait to hear all about her and the trip!

Sorry about the stomach bug. I was wondering the other day if you guys had been cursed with that. It's been through half our family. Hope you all have a smooth safe travel. See you soon.

love Kristie, Scott, Adam, Alex and Jenna

We can't wait to see you all together with Rebecca! We will be following your blog for the first glimpse. Let me know if you might be able to do some skyping. I know that Ryan's class would love to see you all while you are there. Our prayers are with all of you!!
Brent, Angie and Jennifer

Oh I'm so excited for you! Goodness, it seems like just yesterday we got our referrals from our Sweet Pea group.

Did you see that Steffie B got her referral for her SON?? SO exciting.

We will be watching for little miss Rebecca to meet her family!
