"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

Tickets bought...12 days till take off!!!

It's official, the plane tickets are paid for!!!!  In 12 days, my mom, aunt and I will be on a plane heading to China!!!! I can hardly believe it.  Praying that Corban's travel approval arrives in the next week or so,. Our agency has requested that it be rushed and faxed instead of mailed.

On the morning of Nov 3rd (about bedtime of Nov 2nd for you here in the states) I will meet Tegan for the first time!!!! Then 4 days later, in the afternoon of Nov 7th (while you here in the states are fast asleep), I will be united with Corban.  Oh what a glorious two days those will be!!!!  Their daddy will meet up with us in China on the morning of Nov 11th.  Finally, returning to the states on Nov 17th, one months from today!

Needless to say, the next 12 days will fly with the final preparations that are being made.  I can't wait to get to China to meet the boys but I am dreading being away from my family for almost 3 weeks. Thankfully, I know they will be in good care and watched by our Heavenly Father.


  1. Tracy - This is AMAZING NEWS! I'm so excited for you!

  2. Go! Go! Your babies at home will be SO LOVED and safe, waiting for you to bring home their brothers!!!
