On our way!

We are leaving today, bags are packed…a lot of them!  Tickets in hand.  Can’t believe after 7 years I’m actually getting on a plane to make this happen.  Mom and I are MORE than ready 🙂  It will be a 13 hour direct flight to Beijing.  Hopefully no delays.  We should arrive by 5pm on Thursday.    We are being sent off wish such amazing, heartfelt good wishes from everyone, even strangers I meet in the store…yes, it does come up in conversation at the check out counter.  I’m so grateful for everyone’s support! 🙂  Next post from Beijing!Image

    I just realized that you and I are on the same age timeline with our adoptions. You are approximately the age now that I would have been if I’d given birth to Melodie.

    Just a thought.

    Love, Cheryl
