Running in Circles!!! Preparation, preparation!!!!

I can't believe that we actually board that big jet on Monday and fly to the other side of the earth!!!! After four years of dreaming and hoping, our little girl is soon to be placed in our arms! She won't be only held in our mind's eye and heart. We will be able to wrap our arms around her. She will be warm. She will laugh. She will cry. (hopefully, she will feel like smiling and laughing when she meets us :)

Up to this point, Mei Li has felt more like a dream to us. A very sweet dream that we pray will recur every night. We imagine her, what she is like. . . much like we do when we think about God and what heaven will be like.
But, that is soon to change for us. After 4 years of living in our hearts and minds, Mei Li is joining our family in the flesh. And, our actual journey begins Monday as we board that plane.

Thank you, Lord! Your promises are sweet and your mercies are new every single day.

We look forward to blogging while we are on our journey! We hope you will follow!!

NOW. . . I'm off!!!! Got to accomplish MUCH today! :)
