WE ARE GOING TO KOREA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YES, you read that right- we are going to KOREA!!!!!!

I am still in complete SHOCK as obviously it was a total suprise! I am shaking as I type this!

The boys and I were all packed up this morning and ready to go to the beach for a week with cousins and Grandma.
I figured it would be fun and a good distraction from the waiting. I was hopeful that we would get that class b waiver this week, get it signed, and then get a call in maybe 2 more weeks...

Well, can I just say that God is good ALL THE TIME and ALL THE TIME God is good!!!!!!

We obviously didn't need that waiver and she is ready to come HOME!

We were just about to leave for the beach and the phone rang and it was Holt telling me that our baby was ready to travel. I thought she was joking! I kept saying are you serious, are you totally serious? And I just cried because I was so happy.

Then we told the boys the BIG SUPRISE..... That they are coming with us to KOREA!!!

They were very very excited and they had no clue!

So since we were all packed up, we are actually still heading to the beach right now but only for 2 days instead...

Because we are leaving Thursday night from L.A. to fly across the world to FINALLY meet our baby girl! We will arrive in Seoul very early Saturday morning and meet Elliana for the first time on Monday. We are hoping to have her forever on Wednesday the 22nd, but that is up to the Korean agency. We will leave Seoul on Saturday July 25th and be home in the U.S. that same day!

WOW!!! I still can't believe that I will be holding my beautiful baby girl in less than a week!

Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers... I am overwhelmed by His goodness and faithfulness to us!

We love you all so much and know that you are celebrating this part of the journey with us!

Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."


P.S. Since we will be at the beach and then leaving soon after that, I won't be able to respond to or call everyone that I normally would have wanted to. I am sorry in advance for that. For any new updates, I will be posting to the blog or facebook, so be sure to check in frequently. And of course, while we are in Korea, I will be posting daily I'm sure! Love to all of you!

P.P.S>
This is hilarious- I totally wrote up this whole blog and in my scatteredness I posted it to the photography site instead of this one~! So sorry to those who have been checking all day! Here it is on the right site! lol!
