Ready To Go…

The bags are packed and we are ready to head out! These two are super excited about all the goodies in their backpacks…

Little M and I did our toes for the occasion. Yes, they have China maps…thank you, Jamberry!

We also have something very special packed away for Tiny P…

This quilt was made by some very special friends, and they worked SO hard to finish this for us in a short time, so we could take it with us.

You can read more about this beautiful quilt, and all that went into it on my friend’s blog here at Art’s Chili Pepper.

This family is so special to us, and they have prayed and supported us through our adoptions. They love us so well, and we are so thankful they are in our lives!

This special quilt is even more beautiful in person, I love the Paisley fabric done in honor of our Tiny P’s name, but my very favorite is this…the red thread between our home in the US, and tiny P’s birthplace in China.
It makes me a little choked up every time I look at it. Thank you, Wachters, we love you and are so blessed by your calm and prayerful support for our little one.

And, here we go!
