Hey girl, Yippeee-LAST STOP til home! Amazing isn't it? It truly is almost over. I am so hoping that this part can be more fun since it's a little more comfortable from what I hear. Oddly enough, I took the boys swimming last evening at Ida Lee, and met a woman who had adopted two Chinese girls. She was happy to hear you were almost at the White Swan as she said this is definitely the best part of the trip...she said the worst is when you are in the province where you pick your child up because of many of the same issues as you have had. How was Josh on the plane? How long was this plane ride?

Hey there girl! I am so happy you are in your final leg of this amazing but heartwrenching journey! I hope you and Josh and sleeping like babies (hehe) right now and can enjoy your new surroundings soon! We are all so anxious to have you back, but no one more than you, I am sure! Benjamin is counting the days until his "birthday trip" and so are we. We love you and cannot wait to have you HOME with our newest love!
