Please pray that God would be preparing Sophie for a great Monday. Pray that in her grieving process she would allow us to comfort and love on her and that we would bond quickly. Thank you for your prayers and support. You are great friends!

A Week From Today
Next Monday is Sherry's birthday and the day we get Sophie...how awesome is that!!! We will be leaving for China this Wednesday out of ATL at 7:30am. The first few days we will be in Beijing adjusting to jet lag as we tour around a little with the other families that are adopting. Of coarse the tour is not our goal, we just want our little girl. But as we have learned, putting some money into the economy helps keep good standings among adoption agencies and China. We will take advantage of it and find little gifts for Sophie to give her each year for her birthday until she's like 18 or 35. It will be important to help her keep some connectivity with her native country. We are about to go crazy, this has been a long road and now the end...or beginning is in site. Bobby and Larry, two of my pastors are counting down the days for me every time I see them.
