13 and 17.

PLANE TICKETS PURCHASED!! In 13 days at 10:09 am, we'll be getting ready to depart from Detroit Metro for THE biggest journey of our lives.

In 17 days, we will have Ella in our arms.

None of this feels real. We have been reminded time and time again by those who have journeyed to China before us - Live In The Moment. And we are trying to do just that.

The little people in our lives are gearing up for Ella, even though the concept of China and traveling through air and time zones is tough for them to conceptualize. (It's hard enough for us big people!) This morning, our Godson told his Daddy: "We have to buy an airplane today, with edges so that we don't fall off. And no engine. And then we have to get keys. Then we can go get Ella."

You gotta love his 2 1/2 year old spirit. We sure do.



  1. Yippie!!!!!
    We are extremely excited for you guys. Enjoy each day of this journey, you will be blessed!

  2. Wow--wonderful news. We are excited for you. Something about having those reservations in hand makes all the difference, don't you think?

    Love and blessings,
    Aunt Kay, Uncle Peter
