Only 4 more days to go!!!!

Wow, I seriously can NOT believe it's almost time for us to go! We have a busy weekend ahead...tonight is Avery's 5th birthday party with friends, we have soccer games tomorrow and another birthday party to go to, church on Sunday as well as celebrate with family for Avery's birthday. Then we will have Monday to finish up all the last minute stuff and we leave early Tuesday morning, May 3rd (Avery's actual 5th birthday!)...

Thought I'd update the blog now while I have a time (ha!). Our goal is to update it almost daily while we are in China so please check it often if you want to see updates/pictures/videos!! It's hard to imagine that Anna Wei Wei will be in our arms in just 9 days!!

Thank you so much to everyone for your prayers and support in this incredible journey that God has lead us on. We really appreciate them! I have so many emotions going through me right now as we get closer and closer to leaving...excitement, nervousness, anxiousness, etc. I LOVE something I learned just recently in the last bible study I did and it's this 'God doesn't call the equipped, He equips the called'! I keep telling myself that though sometimes I may not feel as prepared as I should be for our new daughter, God is right here with me/us and will equip me/us for whatever we need to do or know, because He has called us to adopt this precious baby girl, this girl that has no home but is about to have a Forever Family!!! Thank you Lord for calling us to do this, because I truly can't imagine life without my third daughter!!

Much Love,
Melissa (Anna Wei Wei's soon to be mommy)

I LOVE that, too! I have to trust that God will/has equipped us because He definitely called us. We leave in 3 days. Maybe we'll meet up in Guangzhou! Safe and happy travels to you.
