Leaving Soon :)

We found out today that we will be leaving in less than 2 weeks for Alina's country! Our appointment with the State Department of Adoptions is on Thursday, April 8th. We are thrilled and overwhelmed at the same time. There is so much to do!

It is hard to believe that we are so close to meeting our new daughter.

We are enjoying a few quiet and relaxed days at the beach before we come home to finish preparing for our (even bigger) trip.

Please keep us in your thoughts as we move forward in the final phase of our journey to Alina...
