TODAY is the DAY!!!

Emy again... Julie just sent this email...

We're here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seems so crazy. As we landed, we got teary-eyed realizing we were in our
daughter's birth country and that we'd be meeting her soon. Called Sue AS SOON
as we arrived. Alazar, our driver, is picking us up at 2:00, 7:00 am your time.
Less than one hour and we'll have her for forever!!!!! Nervous and excited.

We need to be thankful for what we have guys...that's all we can say. The ride
to the hotel was truly humbling. Also, our hotel is a humble hilton. Lol. We're
so thankful to be here safe and sound.

God has been so good to us in EVERY detail of our trip. Including the wonderful
people we've sat beside on the plane!

Thanks for your prayers. Now shift them to Lola attaching to us and
transitioning to a NEW family. My heart is breaking for her. I know she will be
mourning for her nannies, the only family she has.

We bought internet access for the week, so we'll be checking in regularly if
Taking the donations to the transition house when we go.
SO EXCITING!!!!!!! PRAY!!!!!!!!!
Love you!!!
Doug and Julie

It's almost 8:00 here so hopefully they have Lola Joy in their arms!!!! And, hopefully the next post will be from Julie and Doug WITH PICTURES!!!!!
