Hello friends and family,
On Friday Aug.12 we got our TA (travel approval). We just got our flights worked out last night. We leave Portland on Monday (Aug.22). We get to Shanghai on Tuesday evening. We have a day of rest and adjustment. Then on Thursday we get our Zackariah. We will be in Shanghai with him until Sunday Aug.28th. Then we will travel to Nanjing on Sunday Aug.28th. We get our Leah on Monday Aug. 29. We stay in Nanjing until Friday Sept.2. We fly to Guangzhou to work on their visa's to come into the country. We are there until Sept. 8th. Then we will go to Hong Kong. We will fly home Friday Sept. 9th. Which happens to be our 22nd wedding anniversary :) So, I will get to live that day twice!!! We are so HAPPY! Please keep us in your prayers. Pray for Zackariah and Leah's transition. Pray for our travel. Pray for the children left behind ( Ben, Johanna and Nathaniel). Pray for Clint and Felicia as they step in our place as we are gone. We will try to update as much as we can in China.
Love and blessings to you all~ Lauri
These photos are of our little Nathaniel! In the month of July, we marked the day that this sweet little blessing came into our family! It's been three YEARS! I am so thankful to the Lord for giving me such a sweet little man. Mikaela and him had such a fun it doing these picture's too!
