courtney here. its pretty early in the morning. i havent gone to bed yet. but we are leaving for the airport in about two hours. just a whole bunch of excitement and nervousness! i dont even really know what to expect. i've been sitting here on the computer updating my ipod, clearing my camera memory, and playing games. i dont think any of us can sleep. mom and dad both came in here cause we're all awake. it kinda reminded me of father of the bride, when they cant sleep before the big day. but minus the basketball and snow. haha.
i just cant believe that me sitting here will never be the same because when we come home there will be a precious little girl here. everything is going to be different. i cant wait to be in china. but i dont know what china will be like. will they give us weird looks cause we are Christians? but thats the least of my worries... the plane flight is going to be so long... but not as long as we have been waiting for sophie to come home!!
mom dad and i prayed together tonight. it was so calming. and hearing my dads voice as we prayed assured me that he is going to love sophie. he is trying to open his heart to her. i am so thankful that we were chosen to be her family. but just knowing how many people are praying for us makes me know that we will be okay on the flight and for the journey of her life..... well i think i'm going to try to get a couple hours of sleep if i can. although the more tired i am the more i will be able to sleep on the plane i hope. but then again we have benadryl!!!! hahaha. i just hope we only have to use it to make us relax, and not for sicknesses. their are so many bugs going around. :( anyway..... these were just some of my last minute thoughts before we are blogging from CHINA!!!! thanks for reading!! we love you!!!
