It's All Coming Together...

We are finally to the point where everything has come together and I feel at peace. Don't get me wrong, I am still anxious and slightly freaked out. But the big pieces have fallen into place. This is going to happen. I will be leaving next Sunday to meet my daughter.

We have our visa's
We have our final travel itenerary
Everything has been arranged for us in Beijing and Guangzhou
We have our shots
We have the dog kennel notified that Cooper is coming
We have a ride to and from the airport
We have someone to check on the cat
Everything is set with our jobs

Still to do:

Find someone to water my flowers
Get a prescription for Tim and I for a Z-Pack
Get a prescription from our pediatrician for a children's antibiotic
Pack...I'm not a person for packing weeks in advance

I'm thrilled that this time has finally come. I can't wait to follow your journey. We'll be on vacation during the last half of your trip and will be without internet access at the lake cottage. I'm going to go through some serious withdrawal. Be sure to post your airport information. I'd love to be there to take pictures for your return flight back to GR.

Hugs!!

Cannot wait to follow your family to Sophia Jane. What a day that will be.. Cannot wait to see your pictures meeting her and holding her. I'm already tearing up just thinking about it. Another beautiful gift from China ready to receive all your love and another family waiting to be complete.
Will be with you in my prayers and thoughts... Linda

I've got a couple of things to bring you tomorrow at church (must.get.them.together.now!) and wish I'd thought to offer to chauffeur you to and from the airport. As it is, I'd love to be there when you get home - will you share your info with us?

Can't believe you leave a week from tomorrow - how wonderful!!

Oh... my friend (who lives down the road) is going to be a the Starfish Home this week... I gave her some $$$ to give to Amanda... oh I was so envious that I couldn't be there...

Linda said...

Kim, Kim, KIm, this is just the beginning of a wonderous phase of your life. The waiting is almost over. Soon you can rejoice and relax. Sophia is a very lucky little girl and I know your love will know no bounds. Congratulations and best wishes.....
I hope your transition is as easy as Mya and Sara's was/ has been. It is as if she born into our family. Much love to envelope you all......

How exciting!

Hope to get to meet you when I'm there. Pretty busy itinerary, so I'm not sure where I'll be, when.

You will be standing in China before you know it! And it will be just like dream in front of your very eyes :).

Doug and Terrye said...

I remember being in your position, and I wondered if it could really "come true." Then the surreal moment that she was placed in my arms put to rest all of those fears :)
