God said "YES"!

It is truly a miracle! I want to begin by praising my God above and thanking Him for moving this mountain and providing us a CA for 9/23! I give Him all the glory, and I know that without Him this would simply not have happened. I am so humbled to serve such a mighty God who is forever faithful to His people.

Thank you all for praying on our behalf. We will be with Ellie on her birthday and for that I am so very grateful.

I have so much to do to be ready to leave in 4 days-wow!

We'll post our itinerary soon, but I do know we will meet Ellie on Tuesday 9/16 because Monday, 9/15, is a holiday in China. Hopefully, most of her grieving will be over, and we can have a birthday party in China on Saturday, 9/20. I remembered last nght to take candles b/c I don't know if you can buy candles for a cake in China. I can't wait!

Time to get busy packing!

God is Good for sure. I am so excited for you guys. Can I help in any way. I can do laundry, pack or watch the kids. You don't want me teaching school though. Let me know I really am here and willing to help. I can do your running to the stores to.

Congratulations!
Your newest daughter and mine are very close in age and both from Kunming.
When I adopted Alice in July 07 we were able to pay a premium to meet the girls on Sunday - about $35 per child. I was keen to meet my daughter as soon as possible and to have custody overnight before completing the paperwork.
Safe travels,
Kate in Wales

I just love your blog.
Though we haven't met, we moved from Santa Fe, NM to Aiken, SC one year ago.

We've got Blu (CL/CP) age 3, and Caj (left-face birthmark), age 4.

Surely we'll meet you at an area function!

Oh...I got the pink w/black polka dot dresses for my girls...and yes, they wear EVERYthing alike down to their jammies and socks.
I dramatically grab my throat and squeal at how adorable our angels can be dressed alike!

"Ellie and Lilly" are precious, precious names!
