13 days and counting...

Well, we can't believe the time has really come! Only 13 days from today and we will be on our way to China! There are so many things to do and prepare in the next couple of weeks.  Our tickets are booked and the travel agency in China has almost all of the preparation done and organized on their end.  And the packing has begun!
Averi, Nathan, and Connor are super excited and ready to stay with Granny and all of our family at the ranch as well as with some wonderful friends here in Rio Rancho.  We will be skyping with the kids 2-3 times a weeks while we are away, hoping that will help this mama's heart :(  It is going to be hard to say "see you soon" to my precious kiddos.
We have been blessed to skype with Aaron and his foster family twice and again this coming Saturday.  He knows all of our names and will point to each of us.  His English sounds really good, and he appears to be an active little boy! He is absolutely wonderful! We are so thankful for his foster family for all they have done and continue to do for him and us.
Next week I plan on putting our day to day schedule for our time in China on the blog, with prayer ideas for each day.  We will covet your prayers while we are traveling and in China.  So, if you have a group or some awesome prayer warriors, we would love for you to share the schedule - we can never have too many people praying!
I also plan on updating the blog every day or so to let you know how everything is going along with pictures of Aaron and China. So, if you want to follow along, sign up to recieve blog updates and I think a friend of mine is going to post my updates on my facebook page - I will not have access to facebook while in China. 
It seems so surreal.  We have prayed and talked about this time for over 6 years, and now, in God's time, we are finally going to be bringing our little boy home.
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and encouragement :)
