Sleep is getting a bit easier though still waking at 4:30 am with lots of time to think.

This will be our last day as a family of 5.  We take a high speed train to Hefei this (Sunday) morning and receive our DJ at 10am Monday morning (Sunday evening Seattle time)

So many thoughts swirling around in my head.  How oh how does a 9 year old girl give up all she has EVER known and trust that coming to be part of our family to be a daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, classmate, friend and so on?  My hope is that she will see how much we already love her and that we won't take her back to the orphanage like the last family did.  I hope that she will let us old her and take care of her.  I really have no idea what to expect and with that I have no idea how we will respond.  I do know that God has orchestrated this ENTIRE journey and I do know that he has my girls heart held just how it should be and ours too.
