I'll be posting on this blog- When Love Takes You In- as much as possible, hopefully at least once a day. Although I am not going on the trip, I will post emails and photos that my parents send to me. I cannot even believe that this is finally happening! It seems very surreal that after all of this waiting, my parents and Sarah will actually board a plane tomorrow and not too long after, be IN China! And just a few days later, have Chayah in their arms!!!! And then... she will be HOME!!! Our God truly is an awesome God!!!!

We are VERY excited for you and for Chaya too. I'll be following along throughout the journey, and pray for safe travels for your family. I'm SO GLAD she's finally coming home.
