Our Journey to Molly

Last Sleep!

Baby backpack sent to us from our agency

Well,  the day is almost here!!  It's 10:30 pm, the night before we finally get our precious Molly!!!!!  WOW!!!... Everything is so surreal right now.  It's hard to actually comprehend that the little face that I've been studying and loving for so long in pictures, will be ours and in our arms in less than 24 hours!  I can't even put into words how this feels!

We flew from Beijing, high of 30 degrees,  to Guangzhou, high in mid 60's this morning.   This is Molly's province and where we'll stay the rest of the time, until we leave for Hong Kong on the 30th and then fly home on the 31st.  The temps here are definitely more my speed!!   We both fell asleep to take a little power nap when we got here around 2pm.  Well,...it wasn't so little... Jon is still sleeping and I just woke up!  Guess we should've tried to push our nap back a little because there's no way I'm going to be able to fall back asleep!  I don't know how people adjust to this time change,...it's not working out so well for me.

To my boys, we miss y'all so much but I know y'all are having so much fun in B.R.  I can't wait to see y'all with your little sister!  Y'all are going to be the best big brothers ever!  We will skype with y'all as soon as we get back to the room with her.  We love you boys so much!!  

Molly Marie Coco, I'm praying that God is preparing you for this transition and that you feel a peace when you see us tomorrow.  I pray that you can feel how much we love and adore you.  Sweet dreams, baby girl.  

"A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,is 
God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in 
families." - Psalm 68:5-6

I'm glad everything is working electronically so you can blog while you're there! I know you're excited and probably won't sleep a bit tonight, and that she'll be so worth it! I'm praying that Molly recognizes you and Jonathan from the many sweet dreams of her forever family I have asked God to give her over the past several months. The boys are all doing great! We all love you and can't wait to see pictures tomorrow of you all together! Yay...it's finally time!!
