'We Interrupt Our Regular Scheduled Programming For Breaking News'

Do ya remember when I first told you that I might make a trip to help some missionary friends in south China?!  Then I shared last Friday about the struggle of waiting day after day to hear when I could leave?!  I had this dread in my gut that I would be gone over Thanksgiving or my birthday or worst yet, not home for Christmas. 
*gasps of horror and dread*

If you could have peeked into our bedroom every morning after the alarm would blare, you would see me grapple for my computer next to my bed, pull up my email and say to Hubs, maybe today will be the day they say to come. . . maybe, please maybe.

Yesterday morning was THE day.

{Do ya see that amazing line at the end of the email. . .  'all went well!!  he is ours!!'}
Happy chills, I tell ya.  Happy chills.

Please pray for me as I finish up work this week.  Book a ticket.  Pack my bags.  Buy lots of candy and treats to take to my favorite kids there.  Cram ubber cuddle moments with Hubs to the last minute.  Cook him some meals for the freezer. . . poor, lonely boy.  Then head to the airport on Monday morning.

Also please pray for added finances to cover trip costs.  Tickets have gone up in price since I originally raised funds.  I am currently short around $100-$200 and am praying for that quickly so the trip is completely funded.  If you are able to give towards the trip, please email me immediately.
Thanks from the bottoms of our little hearts.
