Still packing

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched ... but are felt in the heart."
- Helen Keller


I knew, or at least deeply hoped, this day would be here. My countdown clock now reads 1 day and 20-something hours before I board a plan to travel and reunite with Beck. I truly feel as though I am standing on the edge of the beginning of our new lives, our new family. It is incredible and overwhelming and amazing. There were times in the process that everything felt painfully slow, I had doubts we'd ever get here. But for those who are still in the process, waiting for your turn to see your countdown clock hit "0", it will happen, and no matter how long you've been waiting, it will still take your breathe away.

I'm so excited for you! I still can't put into words how surreal it was to know we were going to really see them, really touch them and really bring them home! It was and continues to be an amazing adventure!

Hopefully this time you won't get stuck in any airports! :)

I am so excited for you and Beck to finally be together forever. Enjoy the trip. We will keep you in our thoughts. The quilt looks great.

I am really happy for you Mala and Beck. I watched the Montage with tears in my eyes and so thankful for you who are giving my little fellow countrymen better life and so much love. You are like angels in their life and I hope your future will be bright and bring your family so many happy moments. Thank you.
