We are finally in the home stretch. SINGLE DIGITS! Yes, 9 days until we leave for China!!!!!! Praise God this time has finally come. We are still waiting on our final itinerary, once a few more things are worked out. We do know that we are on the same flight as two other families in our group! Both are traveling with 2 1/2 year old girls, so that will make it fun! I cannot believe we are only 9 days away!!!!

I ask you to keep Kate in your prayers. Her life is about to change in a big way. Pray that God would just work in her heart, as we know He so perfectly is. Pray that she would bond and accept us as her family and that she would know that we are here to stay and that we love her more than anything in the world! Please pray that she would stay at Philip Hayden as long as possible, and if it be His will, that we will receive her from there. We got disappointing news today that this is not likely anymore. We are preparing ourselves to receive her from Shangrao and not PHF, but we still have a slight, glimmer of hope because we serve a MIGHTY God who can do anything. I know it seems like a small thing, it is just so important to us. As of now, she is still there.

I've had quite a few people ask if I will be posting from China and the answer is YES. We have a travel site like AnnaClaire's for our trip. (I've actually updated quite a few times over the past few months.) So I just wanted to give you all our travel site in case you don't have it yet. It's www.katecomeshome.com. You can get to it by going to Kate's picture on my sidebar. Kate's info is on there and the website is underneath.

9 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only 9 days.. I bet you all can't wait to give sweet kisses to that sweet little face!

Hi and first post, but know best wishes are behind it... have you joined her SWI yahoo group? Perhaps they can share info on how hugging days are handled. Happy if you already know this, but our group has so much help and SWI specific information. Just an idea. Hope you already know.
Thanks for sharing all your adorable photos!
