Leaving April 2, 2010

Well, we leave next Friday for China to get our sweet baby girl! We received updated pictures and we know she got her care package we sent because in one of the pictures she is holding the stuffed rabbit we sent her and just smiling!
I will be documenting our trip on the babyjellybeans website like I've been doing. It is password protected and we feel better about putting our thoughts, feelings, etc. on there instead of here. In fact, I think this might be the end of this blog. Once we get our baby, we won't have time to blog much.....I'd much rather play with her and just be "Mommy." We will update the other site from time to time and then get the free CD and order a book for her to have showing her the journey to us all becoming a family. Thank you to all of the sweet online friends who have cheered us on during this long process. Our hearts are so full of love, excitement, nervousness, etc. as we will shortly become parents to a little girl! YIPPEE!

Wishing you safe and speedy travel to your little one. I know you've received mean-spirited comments from some unhappy person, but I personally have enjoyed following along on your journey. I've adopted 4 times, so I KNOW how hard the wait is...and there were many times I threw and fit and wanted to throw in the towel too! lol
In the end, the wait truly is worth it!
Take care,

Oh my gosh, I had followed your journey for years. I think it caught my eye so long ago because you are in Danville which I travel through once in a while (much less now then when I began to read your blog) I remember how long and difficult your wait was for you. Your blog was saved on internet explorer which I never use anymore. I just happend to go on it togight and saw your blog listing. I was thrilled to see you had been matched and were probably in China at this very moment!!! Congratulations! You have served your wait time and now you get to enjoy every moment of your sweet baby girl! Again, Congrats from Hampton VA!
