Wednesday, October 3rd



Well, we’re on our way, and the first thought that comes to mind is “Thank you, thank you, thank you!” There are so many individuals who have made this journey a special one for us and we want to let you all know how much we appreciate your support.

Thank you to our awesome girls for being so excited about adding a little sister to our family. Thank you for being willing to share your room, your toys, and for all of the help you’ve been to me and your dad over the past few months. We love you both!!

Thank you to Mike and Lou for being willing to stay with the girls while we are gone. We hope you and the girls have a wonderful time together and we want you to know we appreciate your help immensely. Thanks for putting up with a binder full of household notes :) and being willing to play “soccer grandparents” and cart the kids back and forth to school and all of their other activities.

Thanks Mark and Sandy for an awesome send off dinner, American style (or rather, make that Australian Outback style). We had a wonderful time and I am happy say I actually feel relaxed - something I haven’t been in days. We also want to thank you for all of your hard work and time over the past few months getting Dani’s bedroom completed. I am still in shock that you encouraged lime green carpeting! I love it though, and so does Dani (It’s going to need to grow on Dave for a while before he thanks you for the color, though!). I can’t wait to see what colors Kenzie and Mylie pick out in a few years…We may have a VERY colorful house.

A BIG thank you to the Beiliu Group and May 2007 Travel Groups. We have appreciated the great amount of support and encouragement that you show to all of your members. You have made the adoption experience so REAL for us. We have followed along with so many of your China journeys over the past year to bring your precious children home and we have anxiously awaited all updates and photos. Monica and Missy - we have visited your guys’ pages so much your daughters practically seem like family! Keep those updates coming…

And to our church, First Baptist Church, in Waterville, thank you for showing us that you can see Christ through His church. Your support and encouragement has meant more than we can say. We love our church and can’t wait to be back with you guys in a few weeks.

And lastly, this one’s from Dave. Thank you to my brother, Bob, for setting it up so I can watch American football in China!! Go Colts!!
