Just in case you have lived under a rock and didnt know what is going on in our lives!!! ""WE ARE BRINGING HOME OUR EVER SO HANDSOME LITTLE MAN, LUKE XINHAI, FROM CHINA SOON!!!!"
We are going to be leaving hopefully next week Friday, that is the day I have tickets on hold for until I hear from our in China agent any different that is when we plan to go! I cant believe we are going to see our son, finally! How I am going to control myself to not squeeze him so hard with hugs and smother him from head to toe with kisses I have no idea!!!! Of course I know, know, know I will cry.. That is just me! Wont be able to control that with all the will power in the world combined!
We feel so blessed and cannot believe that many years ago in China a little boy was born and that the Lord, our God, knew his future parents lived many many thousands of miles away and that we wouldn't meet for years, but knew that all would be well and that this little boy would be such a blessing in our lives before he even ever physically touches are home.
I know that this is not going to be an easy journey and it will be full of challenges as it already has been so. But I also know that this little boy is going to bless so many with is presence. I cannot wait to meet him and have the opportunity to get to see his sweet face and start to try and see his personality! We got an update of measurements today and our son has grown! Luke is now 4'6" and weighs 68 lbs if everything converted correctly. Tommy is bummed they are no longer the same size but excited his older brother might look like an older brother ahah, if that makes sense! I am hoping to figure out shoe sizes by the measurement they gave me but am not sure how to do that! I can see his foot is about an inch and a half bigger then Tommy's by how they measured it.
We are getting all of our clothes for the trip laid out and just keep starring at the luggage over and over again. It still feels so surreal, but the fact that I have broke out in tears (tears of utter joy) uncontrollably several times over the last few days is signs that it is truly happening! I want to go shout from the roof tops but will settle for shouting on my blog instead!
As soon as we know our plans we will put a few of the details on here! Luke hold on big guy, your mommy and daddy are coming oh so soon! I am wondering if he knows and how he will handle the anxiety that I am sure will accompany the moment when he is ushered into our arms and out of the orphanage!
more details to come soon! WE ARE GOING TO CHINA SOON!!!!!!!! LUKE HERE WE COME!!!!
