Hey there! We are in Hangzhou and getting all settled in. I will blog all about it tomorrow but GREAT NEWS! The Internet seems to be working really well! YAY for that. :0) Mom is doing much better. I think she is about back to normal. Thanks for all your sweet comments. We love reading them. I don't feel so far away with all this love coming our way. This hotel is GORGEOUS. WOW! OK... gonna go finish unpacking. I am unpacking tiny little GIRL clothes. On Monday there will be an ACTUAL little GIRL in them!!! So COOL! Hugs, Angel

Now in China do you get her Monday and then she stays with you or do they require a bonding period? Just Wondering....

We bought Kaiya some more cute clothes today. Just couldn't resist Baby Gap! Let us know what size she it, so we can exchange if needed. We got a size 3. Abbey (my daughter) and I had so much fun picking it out.

Glad you mom is feeling better!

Angel- I am so happy to hear that your Mom is feeling better! Angela is a WONDERFUL guide and hostess but there's no place like home when you're barfing! ;+)
I remember how precious the emails were from the States when I was feeling so alone in China and homesick. It was a strange combination of wanting to enjoy my son's birth country but also really wanting to be at home!
I feel your anticipation! I remember the waiting and the feeling of my heart pounding as we got down to MINUTES before we met our son in China and then when the knock at the hotel door came my heart STOPPED and I temporarily froze! There are truly no words to describe the experience! God is so very real and present during that first meeting, isn't He? I loved your hubby's anniversary video for you. What a BLESSED marriage you guys share!!! May you experience God's perfect peace as you joyfully wait out these last few hours until Kaiya arrives!
In Him Who is able to do IMMEASURABLY MORE than all we ask or imagine,
