Today Is The Big Day!

Today I become the mother of 3, Rebecca will join her forever family around 4 p.m. China time!

We will depart for Xian around noon today and will travel straight to the Civil Affairs meeting where we will finally meet her in person. From what Amanda tells me (the lady who runs the Starfish Foster Home), Rebecca knows we are on our way and knows she is moving to "Kentucky". Isnt' that cute!

We'll be posting later tonight. Hopefully I will have a camera cable by then too!

Praying for you as I have adopted a toddler also! I am new to your blog but she seems so affectionate and full of life!

Looking forward to you finding that cable so we can all experience your family day. She has the most beautiful face and always looks so loving in her pictures.
My daughter Donna and Joeare in China now also. Their Lauren is in Maoming and they will receive her on the 12th. Such exciting times... Safe and Happy Travels...Linda

Oh, this is so much fun watching this little miracle happen!! I can't wait to see you all as a family of 5. We are praying for you all and Rebecca as you make the transition!

Can't wait to see Rebecca united with you! I have been following her little story for quite some time as a supporter of the Starfish Home. Amanda takes such great care of those babies.

I'll be anxiously waiting for the next update!

We are so excited for you guys. We will be praying for all you and a smooth transition for Rebecca. I remember how happy and nervous we were when we were there 6 months ago getting Jenna. We all gathered today see your pictures but so far nothing. We hope you get something soon. Jenna wants me to tell you she wants a sister like Emma, so bring us home Jade. ha-ha We miss you and love you guys.
Kristie, Scott, Adam, Alex and Jenna
