And We're Off!

The bags are packed (mostly), the airline tickets are purchased and the hotels are booked. It is now just a matter of hours until we depart for China and (more importantly) a few short days until we see our girl. We can hardly wait!

Before we leave, we wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that has been there offering their support and encouragement along the way. Family, friends, and even people that we have never met have taken the time to show their enthusiasm in conversations, phone calls, and kind comments left on the blog. For those that have left comments on the blog, we want you to know that we appreciate your thoughtfulness.

We hope to be posting regular updates with photos while we are in China as time permits and for at least a little while after we get back.
