We leave in 9 hours!! March 29th

It's 1 am and I am switching to China time tonight, thats why I'm still up. I really just can't sleep, but it sounds like a good plan. Our flight leaves at 9am I think we are over packed, but I still left room for lots of stuff from China. There is no way we could go carry on only!!! It still doesn't seem real yet. I just got the boys bags packed they are leaving tomorrow to go camping for the weekend and when they wake up on Monday in the States we will have Grace. Our last pictures and updates of her were at 4 months and now she is 16 months. We know we will not recognize her. We are praying she will adjust quickly and learn to be flexible with our crazy family. We have to fly through Hawaii to get her citizenship since we live in Germany. We spend 1 night there and then back to Texas then to New Jersey then back to Germany. We really pray Grace can just go with the flow. We were told we couldn't leave the States until all of our relatives and friends meet her. We are so thankful for everyones prayers and support through this long wait. We praise God for His perfect plan in all things!!

We are praying for you guys! Sounds like it's been quite a journey thus far. I hope our trip to the states in a couple weeks isn't...quite as interesting. :) We can't wait to meet little Grace when we get back. Stella has been saying, "Hadyn? Rylan? Eamon? Curran? Grace!" So cute! I hope your journey to China is an exciting one, but not because of airplane/luggage difficulties. May God bless your journey...
