HOME!!!! (and a really easy flight!!)

I'm home, doing LOADS of laundry, disinfecting shoes, (yep, I'm a germaphobe) and enjoying coffee, Jennifer Petterson's bread and my REAL BIBLE vs. a kindle!!!  I"ll post more later about God's faithfulness - but suffice to say that Philippians 4 has been the story of the last year! Casting anxieties upon God, counting on his faithfulness to give me HIS peace, and trusting Him in all circumstances.

We had strong believers with us during every part of our trip - an incredible guide, and really fun new friends in the adoptive families that we met.  Our friends, the Lims, made our stay in Guangzhou special and a memory our new daughters will keep for a lifetime.

The last blessing was three seats ALL TO MYSELF on the plane! (the girls wanted to sit together, and the man next to me fled at Sarah's first holler - way to go, Sarah!)

I closed my eyes and when I woke up there was only an hour and a half left on the flight! Woohoo!!!  Life is good!!  Anyway, I'll leave you with a few pics, and post more later when we recover (or not) from jet lag.

Love you all - and know that your prayers were answered!!!  Blessings, Kim

  6. Kim,

  10. You did it! You are my hero and I'm so jealous of your easy flight. Did I ever tell you about our flight home? Not easy, not at all.

    Anyway, there is so much I want to know because....I'm going to China, too! Yes, I received PA last Thursday for my little 13 year old. I say little now because I realized my friend's 11 yr. old is the same size as I'm estimating my daughter will be and she's not at all as big as I thought that would be.

    I want to know all about the Victory West, because I stayed in the Victory last time, but didn't know about anything West and didn't see a StarB. (not that I go there, but I didn't see one as a landmark).

    I also want to know all the shots your poor Jenny had to get.

    I'll call you in a few days!

  11. God is good! I'm happy that your made it home, rested! The girls look happy too! I love how God gave you a place to rest!
