At the airport

As I type this, we are sitting in the airport in OKC!! We are finally on our way to China.  I have to admit that I am scared to death, excited beyond belief, nervous to the point of almost vomiting, running on very little sleep, repeating check lists in my head-certain that I forgot something, and just ready to get on the plane!

I have so many thoughts running through my head.  Will I be a good parent? What are we getting ourselves into? How is Kai going to take this HUGE change in his little life?  How am I going to screw this up?

BUT…. the most overwhelming thought that I have is of that adorable little face.  The one that will look up at me very soon and within time will be calling me mama.

The reassuring thought that God has a plan for me and our new little family pulls me through- through the door of my house to the airport.  All of the pieces fit together in just such a way to make sure that I am sitting here next to my best friend as we start this journey to our family beginning.  If the consulate had taken another couple of weeks or the Chinese government had taken their time-I may have not been able to make this trip.  GOD IS GOOD!

I still can’t believe that in less than one week I will be holding that precious little boy!  He may be kicking and screaming as I am crying my eyes out, but I will be holding on to the real thing!  We welcome your prayers for a quick transition and for his heart to be prepared to receive us as his parents.

Thank you to everyone that has been our support thus far in the process!  We love you guys!
