Even Better Plane Tickets


Last time I mentioned we had a surprise involving plane tickets, it was when Luke came home.  This time is perhaps not as life-altering, but very exciting nonetheless!


Can you guess?


No, we're not adopting again.  (Like probably ever, especially if you ask Paul.)

When my girls were in China, our agency sent people over to meet, interview, and photograph the children in their orphanages.

Katie in May 2012

In fact, it was during one of these trips that one of the directors met Katie and immediately thought of our family.  She emailed me, and the rest is history.

Now, not only do I get the opportunity to meet that woman, I get to go one one of these advocacy trips myself!  I'm so insanely excited, I can barely sit still.  I'm going back to China!

Prepare yourself for travel photos and lots of pictures of precious children who need families!
