One week from today.....the journey begins!

So, one week from today, we will finally meet our little man face-to-face!!! It still feels so surreal! The wait felt excruciating at times, and now here we are, just 4 days away from flying out!!!! Its hard to believe!

It would be awesome if all of you would really begin praying for Max. I've been thinking a lot about him and how hard this whole process may very well be. He's going to be taken from everything and everyone he's ever known, and it makes me sad to think that he'll be hurting for a while. I know our intentions are pure and our love for Max is beyond words, and hopefully he'll one day feel super blessed that God chose Stephen and I to be his dad and mom. But, for now I know he'll probably be pretty sad. So, if you all could just be praying that somehow God would begin to prepare his heart for this super huge transition!

Well guys, I've got about a million more things to accomplish but I'll be sure to keep you all posted! Thanks for journeying with us!

Hi guys... we'll be praying for you and we're all so excited for what you're about to experience! Praise God for bringing Max home to be with his Mommy and Daddy!

It's good that you're entering into the adoption with such understanding and realizing what your little guy is going through. This will help him as he'll need empathetic parents. I'm sure that he'll learn to adjust with parents like you!

Please know you guys are in our prayers. You both will make great parents and in time Max will realize how "blessed" he truly is!

We are so happy that finally you will get him home.

Our son still remembers his best friend and so do we, when we said goodbye to him just one year ago.

So cute and handsome little Thai prince is waiting for you.

Take care and have a wonderful memorable journey to Thailand.
We know that you will lose your heart into that country :)
