Last post from China!!

We are going home!!! We have to get up at 4:00am in the morning get ready and head to the airport. Tyler, Micah and Elizabeth Grace here we come!!
Today was a great day. We had our consulate appointment this afternoon. It is hard to swallow the lump in your throat as you do the final swear that all the info you have provided is correct and that you will never abandon this baby. We also took the the "red couch" picture today. Actually we took it twice. Once with Ee Dan...dont know to spell her name only say it. She was the little 6 year also adopted from Chengdu. Ee Dan simply adores Sophie and we will miss her, Kristin, Stephanie, Helen and Joanne. (our Chengdu travel group)
Our second set of red couch pictures was with my friend Cynthia and her girls. We have had so much fun hanging out with the Farleys, I cant wait until we meet up again this spring.
Thanks to everyone for following along on our journey to this precious gift from God. Please keep us in your prayers as we travel home. God Bless!!
