Getting ready to leave


Very soon we leave for China and as I type this on the computer I can't believe how calm and at peace I am about all of it. VERY different from how I was before the trip for Grace in 2003. I'll just briefly say that there was a great deal going on in our personal lives with both of our parents' health and Dan's job that was very, very stressful. I'm at a different place in my life for many reasons, a good place and that is where I stand ready to meet our son. I know there will be lots of changes for us all. I also know we could have some hard times ahead with adjustments and transition, somehow we'll get through it. I ask for your help please by keeping us in your thoughts and prayers during this time period, that we travel safely, stay healthy in China and William Michael has a smooth(or as smooth as possible) transition. See you next from China, as always thank you friends for your support and good wishes!
