Ready for Ellie









We are ready to go get Ellie. Our flight leaves at 9:00 in the morning. Most her room is ready, everything is packed, meals are in the freezer, other childrens' arrangements are set, and are hearts are full of love for a special little girl half- way around the world. You think the day will never come, but it does. Thank you all for following our journey and for your supportive and encouraging comments along the way and most importantly, for your prayers.
Please remember to pray for Ellie as she will soon be saying goodbye to all she has ever known. It will not be easy for her, but we will be there every step of the way to love and support her.
Lord willing, the next post will be from China.

Only a few more days until you meet Ellie! I know you can hardly wait. What a journey it has been for you, but this is where God intended for you to be. Our prayers are with you and Ellie. We look forward to your posts from China.

Jan,

After a few long plane rides you will be arriving in Guangzhou China...that much closer to your precious Ellie. We pray for travel mercies as you make your way half way around the world. We look forward to future posts and keeping up with you as you make your way to meet your precious Ellie.

God Bless
Becky
