Today's number is 24...24 hours! or 1...1 day

We are set to leave at 8:00am TOMORROW!

We were awake until 2:15am...for those of you that know bedtime, if I had my choice, would be 8:00pm!

So, this morning, it called for a large Coke AND a large sweet Tea from Chick-fil-A! I'm not liking the thought of NOT having a sweet tea to start my morning, but I'm banking on finding the local 7-11 that all of my bloggy friends have been stopping by while in China to find a Coke or at least a Diet Coke.

Our bags are mostly packed.

We are a walking pharmacy!

We are a walking vending machine!

We are a northern winter clothing store!

We are a mild FL winter clothing store!

We have diapers,


nose suckers,

stacking cups,






and so much more!

Now all we need is our


We are 121 hours away from our son, our little brother, our grandson, our nephew, our cousin, our neighbor, our brother in Christ, a child of God!

This little boy is getting so much more than a mama and dada; he has an entire forever family waiting to hold him, tickle him, kiss him, and just stand in awe of a miracle right before our very eyes. And he's even getting...

a dog!

But with all of that, our son is losing all he's ever known.

And it will be heartbreaking!

Please pray! (I will send out another post of specific prayers requests for our family and our son!)

We are still hoping to upload a practice video clip.

Still so much we feel we need to do...

but it's time to let some of that go!

All that matters is that we're going to get our SON!

This post brought tears to my eyes as I read it. Our God is an awesome God, and he is showering his blessings on this precious little boy and your family.

Can't wait to meet Jackson someday!
