It's time...

Well, the time has come to say that we are leaving in less than 12 hours for the airport. I'm sure 4 am is going to come early (if I even get any sleep!) We are having a bit of a time meeting the weight limits... I think we'll be ok(atleast I'll try convincing the airlines that it will be) Now come on everyone, do you really think I wouldn't try to cram a lot of little girl clothing into them?

We take off from Pittsburgh at 8:35 to Newark. Then leave for Beijing about 2 hours later. Please, please pray for us. We had a small scare this morning because of this whole swine flu, and we thought we wouldn't be able to travel, but we are still going. We will arrive in Beijing at 1:58 p.m. China time, but will be 1:58 am our time here. We will stay at a hotel in Beijing for the night, then fly to Chloe's province, which is only a little over an hour plane ride on Sunday, where we will check into our hotel, and are scheduled to meet Chloe that night! I will be a mother of 4 in 3 days!

Thanks to everyone who emailed or called us this week...It means alot to us that you are thinking of us, and are praying for us.

Well, I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to post anymore until we land in Beijing.

China, here we come....
