We're Leaving On a Jet Plane

In just a few hours, we will be leaving on one of these to begin the actual journey to get to Hannah! Hopefully, ours won't be made out of Lego bricks, though. :)

Dropping the kids of for 18 days apart was very hard.  There were tears and lots of hugs, but it was sad. However, I have to brag on God in a major way! We were so concerned about Andrew, but he did so well! He did tell me twice that he was ready to go home now, once while I was giving him his bath and once before we tucked them into bed, but he accepted it when I told him that we couldn't do that.  The family they are staying with built a big blanket tent for them to sleep in, and they were so excited!  I know they are going to do so well.

Even more bragging on God: Jerry got a solution to the computer network meltdown at work.  I was so thankful that he could come home from work yesterday without that hanging over his head!

My shoulder is painful, but okay.  I haven't been able to do some of the cleaning I like to do before I leave on a trip, but my wonderful mom said she would fill in for me on what my shoulder couldn't take - thanks Mom! That is such a relief.

We did realize last night that we have to have 2 passport sized photos of each of us for our consulate appointment, so we are heading out to do that this morning.  Otherwise, we are completely packed, the boys are taken care of, we have people scheduled to be in and out of the house while we are gone, we are getting the last of the laundry done now, and in just a few hours we head off to the airport!

The next post will be made from China! Woo-Hoo!

Praise the Lord! I've been praying for you guys, for the computer snafu at work, your shoulder, the boys without you guys, and for a perfect trip! My sister's daughter is from the same province as Hannah and she told me a bunch of places you should opt to see instead of the places they want you to go, but I already forgot them. And you're probably already gone! Will keep praying for you throughout this time! Hugs!
