OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!!!

I just checked his flight online and they're already coming down over western Canada! I never imagined that a picture of a little white airplane stuck over Canada would make me this happy!

Can't stop crying...or praising God!!! Just a few more hours!!!!!!!!!!!

So...I guess it's ok to spill our big secret to y'all. As if the whole process isn't stressful enough, we had one added little bit of stress that we had to deal with.

Shortly after we turned in our completed dossier, our friend and attorney, Fred, passed away unexpectedly. Tragic in and of itself as he was one of the kindest, funniest, and most gentle humans to ever bless our lives. A couple of weeks after his passing, I had Garry call the agency to see if this would effect...affect...I can never remember which one is correct...our process.

Garry was told, "This is a big one. He notarized all of your documents. His notary expired on his death. At any time during the process, if anyone in China has any questions about your dossier, and finds out that he is no longer living, you will have to start over from the very beginning." As Garry sat in stunned silence he was then told, "Don't tell ANYONE."

So you see, any time from August 2005, until Garry finished the paperwork in the last couple of weeks in China, we could've lost our baby. I think the very best news we've ever received came from Zhou the night before the "official" ceremony. He told Garry, "No more worries. She yours."

Just a few more hours my friends...just a few more hours....
