I have so much to be thankful for! Today, I was at the mall and there was an Air Force guy in the food court. (What do you call a person in the Air Force? I mean, you call people in the Marines and Army soldiers and sailors for the Navy. So what about the Air Force?) Anyway, I went up to the guy and thanked him for his service in our military. He responded with, "Thank you for the opportunity to serve." Isn't that the greatest response?!?

We are leaving in about 40 hours to begin the last leg of our adoption journey. We are so happy to bring this little boy into our lives! I hate it when people say that we are saving him. We are the lucky ones! We get to be a Mommy and Daddy to a very special little one.

Our facilitator was able to get us a reservation at a beautiful hotel near where Little Man lives! It is a quaint little place (only 19 rooms) and it had everything we hoped for (internet, tv, breakfast included) She is amazing and I can't wait to meet her in person!

I just can't believe we are at this point. I still have the feeling I am going to wake up and it will have all been a dream. How cool is it when life feels like a good dream! :)


  1. They're Airmen. Life is going to get VERY excited in 1 day, 3 hours 18 minutes and some seconds!

  2. Hi! I am a mom adopting from the same country as you! We are adopting Maria!
    I am very excited to follow along on your travels, and I wish you all the best on your Journey. My prayers will be with you!
