Join Us On Our Journey to Bring Sophia Jane Home.

Saturday, June 13, 2009

We are finishing our packing and preparing to head out first thing in the morning.


Wish I had a good photo to post of the chaos in the living room, but Tim is doing something with charging up the cameras (I have no idea, it must be important I'm sure).
I am packing our main bags, putting spare outfits in the carry-on in case they lose our luggage. I have a suitcase filled with American snack food...granola bars, fruit snacks..you name it.
I have a full pharmacy it seems. I tell you, when you have been buying things to get ready for a couple of weeks, you end up with a lot more than you thought.
Eli's been in bed for an hour and won't go to sleep. I'm wide awake, don't know if the sandman will be coming my way tonight or not.
I have our clothes laid out so we can throw them on in the morning.
We will be up bright and early.
Keep us in your prayers...

Faith, Hope, and Love said...

Kimberley,
I have been STALKING your blog. :) I have been praying a thousand times a day for you! I pray that all is well and that you just are not able to get to a computer. Getting a little worried here in St. Louis. Hoping and praying you are LOVING Beijing and didn't get caught up in a quarantine. Surely someone here in the states knows of your status? If that person is reading this please leave a comment for us stalkers. :)

Waiting with baited breath!
Love,
Robin

k1 said...

Steffie, do you know which motel she'd be at? You probably stayed at the same one when you got Andrew.

The Things We Carried said...

I am not stalking, really :)! Just dying to know how you are doing and if your sweet girl is in your arms?

Alyson and Ford said...

We need updates! Please! Hoping all is going great!!
