Last Night Home

Well, here we are, ready to embark on this leg of the journey. I'm completely calm and at peace knowing the the Lord is walking with us. We know that God will give us the grace to withstand whatever lies ahead.

We do hope you will all continue to join in on our journey by following along with our post. We would love for everyone to leave a comment so we can feel connected with you. We also ask that you continue to cover us in prayer. We will post as soon as we can and as often as we can.

Your itinerary is very similar to ours three years ago. We flew to Detroit, then Tokyo, then Beijing. Our hotel was just around the corner from the one you'll be staying in.

All my best,

This morning around 6:15 when Landon woke us up. He asked me if Shawna was holding Emma yet. I told him not yet, but that you were probably boarding the plane. We are all so excited!

Yay...thanks for the itinerary!! Sounds like a fun-filled trip. We will definitely pray for you guys every day. We won't be able to make it to her party because we will be in Florida but once we are home, we can set up a play date. I am totally bummed about that!! Just remember that this is 2 weeks out of your life and you will get emotional...tears and all...but God is with you and blessing you with this precious child. Congratulations and will be blog stalking through out your trip!!!
