Today's the day!

Yes, it's not even 5 a.m. here and we're up already. We actually woke up at 4 and couldn't go back to sleep. We get Julia in four hours! The crib is already in the room and ready to go. Please keep Julia in your thoughts and pray that the transition isn't too traumatic for her. We're gaining a daughter but she's about to lose her homeland, culture and the only family she's ever known.

I'll write as soon as I can with pictures and video of her.

By the way, Anna's doing great and I'll be eternally grateful to Beverly for watching our sweetheart for us. It gives us peace of mind in a tough situation.


  1. Have a wonderful day!!!! Enjoy every bit of it!!

  2. What no chocolate?? You'll have to make that up on our next cruise. Double warm, melting chocolate cakes!

    Bob & I will say a prayer that Julia adjusts quickly. I know with you guys as parents she will be smiling & happy right away. Glad Anna is well too.



  3. Hi Gwen and Jason, Thinking of you as you are likely getting julie right now as I type! So glad to hear ANna is doing well at home. That must be such a relief as you begin your life with another daughter today!

    Praying all goes well and that Julie will qujickily feel safe, secure, and loved in your arms.
