I’m leaving for CHINA!

IT’S OFFICIAL!!!!
We leave tomorrow to go get our girl! I am so ecstatic but also sad to say goodbye to Peyton and Ryan at the same time. When I look at that pretty little face below, it definitely helps put my mind at ease! It’s amazing that all of the work we have been doing for the past year (actually, over a year!) is finally coming to a culmination … our ADOPTION TRIP … the goal we have been working toward for SO LONG! Holy cow, I’m going to CHINA and I’m coming back with another beautiful daughter! It’s still hard to wrap my brain around that … maybe I’ll “get” it when I am on the plane?

Some housekeeping … I plan to return to shooting sessions in July – I know the clients I need to contact when I get home to schedule and I promise I’ll take care of you when I return! I ask for your patience in my responding to email when I get home, I’m just not sure how we will transition. I’ll be working a little lighter than usual through the summer but plan to get back into the swing of things in the Fall – just in time for Fall Mini’s!
Thank you so much to ALL of my readers, seriously from the bottom of my heart to the top of it, for all of the love and support you have shown me during this process! It’s been crazy and long, sometimes frustrating but always joyful … and now the REAL work begins. Please, please, please follow our adoption trip on my PERSONAL BLOG!! I am all set up with a VPN and should have no problems blogging in China. And even if I do have issues, a very wonderful friend has offered to blog for me if needed (I just love her!!). The pictures won’t be quite as plentiful as usual (no Macbook in China), but I promise you’ll be able to still get the idea! Also, I’d love for you to follow along in our prayer schedule – it’s based on what we are doing each day in China. HERE’S THE LINK with the information.

Congratulations to your family and to Brooklyn. You are all so lucky to have each other. I love you all so much and look forward to following along and praying during your journey. Now go get that amazing little girl and bring her home 🙂

Love you all!
