I've got good news folks...
The Johnson's are goin' to China
Kristen Hussa, our travel coordinator called Eric just after 10:00am this morning to tell us they are putting together a small special needs group to leave 2 weeks from Thursday. Thank you precious Jesus! It looked for a few days like we would not meet our daughter until March 31, but now we will get to hold her for the first time on Monday March 17. Yeah!
When he called me at work to pass along the incredible news, I screamed and jumped, and jumped and shouted, and screamed and shouted some more (I THINK he still has hearing in his right ear...?). I can't stop pinching myself. Is this for real? W - O - W! I'm gonna be a MOM!!!
We will get spend Palm Sunday worshipping in Beijing (what IS the name of that church...?) with believers from around the world - SO cool - and then we will meet Noelle on St. Patrick's Day! Eric and I have a special top all picked out for her to wear later that afternoon. It's green and white, has a big shamrock on the front, and says "Kiss Me, I'm Adorable". Alright, you might think that's weird, but I absolutely LOVE anything Irish. Besides, it's totally appropriate that Noelle wear the little t-shirt, 'cause it's part of her heritage (Eric's mom is part Irish)! ;-)
So. That gives us 16 days to finish preparing for
The Trip of Our Lives.
Oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man oh......
Noelle is the cutie in the red shirt
