Many of you know my sweet sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Sonia and Brandon are adopting a beautiful baby girl from South Korea. We have prayed for this baby girl since we first laid eyes on her last November. We found out the day before Thanksgiving last year, that she would be a Bice..... How amazing that this year on Thanksgiving, she will be in our arms!
Brandon, Sonia and one of their sons, Mason, left early Friday morning for Korea. Sonia and I packed suitcases until midnight Thursday night while our hubbies were in charge of weighing the suitcases and shuffling the contents of them around until they got each one to weigh in at 50lbs. Sonia and I have spent many nights preparing for labors to be induced the following morning, but this was definitely a different experience for us. It was very surreal packing SO much stuff. It wasn't like the other times when I could simply say, "if you forget something, I will bring it to the hospital in the morning". So, we were trying to make sure we remembered everything they could possibly need. I'm assuming we did a pretty good job :)
Anyhow, I was hoping I would find the time this week to post a few updates of their time in Korea, but our dear friend, Liz had a much better idea. She set up a blog for Daria, and now Sonia can post pictures and blog about this amazing experience each day. Our communication with Brandon and Sonia is very limited. We can skype and use facebook, but no phone calls or texts. So this blog will be a wonderful way for us to see pictures from their trip and hear details. Please follow their journey HERE, as they Bring Daria Home. They will pick her up on Tuesday morning at 9:00 (Korea time) which will be 7:00 Monday night for us. Can't wait to see her sweet face! Please keep their family in your prayers this week.
