Bringing Henry Home

We are so excited and ready to bring Henry home! What a journey it has been the last 14 months. We feel like we literally trekked the Great Wall of China to get to this point, overcoming mounds of paperwork, multiple approvals, fundraising, long distances, sickness, fatigue, various emotions, Henry's adjustment, waiting, and now the unknown ahead as we forge a new life together as a family of five (or six if you include the dog:). Wow! God has been so gracious to us in this process and we are indebted to your prayer covering. Thank you!!!

We have Henry's U.S. visa in hand and flights are confirmed. We leave our hotel at 5:40 in the morning so plan to be early to bed tonight. We fly from Guangzhou to Beijing, have a 4-hour layover there, then fly to Seattle on HU0495, to arrive at 11:05 a.m. on Sat. the 21st. The boys are to arrive in Seattle from DFW at 4 p.m. the same day...praying all goes smoothly for this last part of the journey! If all goes well, we will be home Saturday night, ready for a good night's sleep.:)

What a very Merry Christmas for us all! Blessings!
