Travel Approval!!!!!!!!!!!

Woohoo!  I am beyond excited!  We get to meet our daughter for the first time in a little over 2 weeks!  I know the next two weeks are going to be crazy, but a good kind of crazy.  I am full of so many emotions right now.  Just knowing that I will get to meet our little Hayley so eyes are filled with tears just thinking about it.  The other part of me is a little sad to say goodbye to my boys for 2 1/2 weeks, and miss their first day of school.  I am so thankful to have such an amazing family here that I know will take care of them, like I would!

Thank you to all of our family and friends that have been so supportive of our adoption.  There is so many of you that are now a part of bringing this little girl home through prayer and financial support.  We are so thankful for that.  God has blown me away over the last year.  We knew that he was calling us to adopt, but did not see any humanly possible way that could happen.  He has blessed us over and over in ways that no one could ever explain.  Someday soon, I plan to put the whole story here! 

Please check in while we are in China, as I plan to post pictures and video of our adventure!  At this point, we are scheduled to leave on August 16th, and that will be confirmed early this week coming. 

Here we come Hayley Grace!!!!
