farewell vontrapp style {radio silent}

this song has been running in my head all day. and i found this video ever appropriately subtitled in chinese :)

this afternoon, we took our last family photo with emery under glass. can't wait till she's wiggling in my arms!

tomorrow morning, the boys will awake to these:

one of the best parts of us going to get emery, is knowing foster and rowan will be having so much fun staying with my parents. if there's anyone who's fun and loving, generous and full of everything wonderful, it's my mom! i'm excited for them to soak up some one on one time together! i'm sure my dad will have them trucking around on the ranger, or scouting new motorcycle parts, much to their delight. we also have great friends & uncles & aunts lined up for play dates and sleep overs. yeesh, they probably won't even miss us!! :)

we'll be radio silent for a few days.
but believe you me, as soon as i can get my hands on some photos of my girl, i'll be posting them!!

i don't think i'll even be able to express my gratitude and deep thanks for all of the love and kindness we have received. i have seen and heard and felt the body of Christ in the most powerful way.
praise be to Jesus! my daughter is coming home!
