It's actually happening...

Its been 2 years, 3 months, 3 weeks and 2 days since we started our adoption process and now it is finally coming to a close.
This morning our Consulate appointment was confirmed and its official. The upside: we leave very soon. The downside: we will be there longer than we originally thought.
But as I was praying this afternoon it came to me that after all this time waiting, hoping and wondering, 19 days in China is a small sacrifice for a lifetime (Lord willing) with this child.
So, today I am asking for one last thing. Please please please pray for us. Specifically. Here is how.
For Brian: he has a lot of work to do before we leave at work. There is a lot he needs to make sure is in place so he will not feel burdened while we are gone.
Me: I don't fly well and anxiety plays a huge part at the thought alone. Please pray for a peace that passes all understanding. Also, there is so much to do between planning/packing/paperwork gathering and a last minute yard sale. Please pray for things to be smooth and most of all for us to both rest in His timing and comfort in all of this.
Boys: this is the longest we have ever been gone. Pray for their protection and comfort.
Jenna Grace: this precious baby girl is about to have her world turned upside down! She needs the most prayer. Pray for her heart, that God is preparing it even now.

At the moment that is all I can think of but I am sure there is more, much more. Thank you so much for being on this journey with us. It isn't over yet but we are closer than ever.
