I just got home from working all night (13 hours), looked at the calendar and realized Our FLIGHT LEAVES NEXT SUNDAY at 8:55 AM from Seattle for China.!!!!!! I can hardly believe it is so close! Now I am having a hard time going to sleep and I have work again tonight.

Every morning Katy asks if we can leave to go get "My China". We have to keep telling her not today but pretty soon!!!

Lexi we are almost on our way! We will be there soon sweetie!!!!!

We are getting down to the wire for tickets!

We know something will work out, we are leaving it in God's hands.

Keep praying!!!

Keep us in your prayers for cheap tickets!

We are trying to find cheap tickets and the money to pay for them. So far the best price we have is $4500 just for airline tickets. We talked with the Agency and told them we did not want to do the tour again because they go to the same places we went last time. They called back today and said they negotiated a better price for us to just use the guide for transportation to and from the airport and for the adoption related stuff.

The Agency wants us to have our tickets by Friday so here is to a lot of praying that everything works out and we will have our baby in our arms on August 7th!!!!
