and we're off!

I'm going to try to sleep tonight... My mind just keeps coming up with things to do! It doesn't even seem real that we'll be boarding a plane to travel halfway around the world, where they will hand us a complete stranger, who we will call our daughter. I just can't get my head wrapped around it! We still have a long ways to go to get to her, but each step is a step closer!

We meet Cora on Monday, March 21. Adoptions from this orphanage usually take place around 3:00 in the afternoon, which will be about 3:00ish (I don't have my time zones straightened out yet. Oh let's be honest - I probably won't even bother.) in the morning here. She will be in our arms by the time your alarms go off! Crazy!!!

Thank you to all our dear friends for your support: for praying for us, for listening to us/me whine about the waits, for cheering us on! We are so blessed.

More to come...!
