We were getting ready to leave for China! I can't believe that it has been TWO YEARS already! I remember not being able to sleep at all the night before & repacking our suitcase about thousand times (and there were still things I forgot to pack or wished I had more of....). Most of our family & friends were there for us as Keith & I boarded our first plane leaving our local airport for China. I remember taking on Airbourne tablet and having not read the directions...place the whole tablet in my mouth. Let's just say, foam was every where & my sister just looks at me & said..."Are you sure you can do this?" We than just looked at each other & starting laughing. It was the last thing that was said before boarding on that early morning...
Also, two years ago today was the first time we meet Amy & Owen at Chicago's airport. We hit it off instantly and it is amazing how our friendship has grown into true family love. I can never express what they mean to us!
(once we landed in China, it was also the first time I ever had my passport stamped.)
Our gotcha day was November 8th...so please check back for photos of our darling Francesca.
Today is also a day that has me thinking about when we travel for Sofia. Seeing how it will be our second time doing it, I feel more prepared than when we were going for Francesca...I guess we'll just have to wait & see. (I just hope that our day for leaving for Sofia comes very soon....)
