***Proverbs 19:21 MANY are the plans in a mans heart, but the Lords purpose will prevail***

Oh praise the Lord, we finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

We get Mavery on October 13th. I am bawling my eyes out as I write that. It is official, WE GET MAVERY SOON!! No more wondering, we are on our way... We think we will leave here on October 8th and will be home on the 23rd. Working on flights now.

I think reality is setting in. We are going to have FIVE children. We are going to have 2 the same age. We are going to have a 3 year old who does not speak English. We are leaving our kids for 2 weeks. We are leaving SAGE for 2 weeks. I know the others will do fine, I worry more about Sage. She is young, she is attached to me and it is going to be hard. She keeps saying, I go to China on the plane to!? I know she will be fine, but my mommy heart still worries about being away from my kids that long.

Anyways, God is good, His timing is perfect and we know that. Our friends did not find out their CA today, so we are still praying for them to get the same date with us.

Final plans to come soon!

So exciting! I have been lurking around since your referral as I just love your little Mavery and her sad face. :) Actually, I can't wait to see you turn that frown upside-down!

We traveled for our son just before he turned 3 (a year ago)and he has been a breeze. Picked up English CRAZY fast and adjusted so well and easily to our family. He has so surprised and amazed me. I hope your transition is just as pleasant. :)

Safe travels.
