Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

MINA, HERE WE COME!!!!!!!!! in 25 days we will be holding our new precious daughter!  As the little kids would say in 25 "sleeps".  I just can't wait.  Hold on baby girl, Mama's coming!
HOLY COW,  WE GOT OUR TA (TRAVEL APPROVAL) ON MONDAY AND TODAY WE HAVE OUR CA (CONSULATE APPOINTMENT).  This is very exciting stuff.  Marc is busy trying to find the best flights for us right now,  We will be leaving on March 21st, which is C's first day of spring break, which means he can go on this amazing trip with us and only miss 5 days of high school.  Yet another amazing gift in this process!  Can you believe in less than a month I will be posting pictures of the Great Wall of China again, but next time, we will be standing on it!!! Outrageous!  My bags are nearly packed and I am busting with excitement.  I am forcing myself not to freak out about the flight, since I HATE to fly.  Thank God for modern medicine!  I will be comfortably "sleeping" the entire way.

We will be think of you and praying for a safe flight & safe return. God is awesome! It's wonderful that C will be able to go and be a part of it. I'm so happy for all of you.

Hooray! I am so excited for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to follow along and "witness" this little miracle. Congratulations A and family. Please Lord, bring home sweet Mina safely to her family (and please help A with her flight fears...I totally understand). Now, go get yourself a jazzy little countdown to Mina ticker... :-)
