Soooo close!

We are in Kunming and so is Elita! So crazy to know we are in the same town! I woke up and let a little squeal out this morning...Tom says "are you ok?" I said girls get like this when they are excited...you'll have to get used to that sound soon! :) We will travel and meet her within 2 hours this morning! WOW! Her diaper bag is packed with an outfit we hope fits her, food we hope she might like, and toys she's never seen the likes of, and a blankie that Tom and I have been sleeping with for months to bundle her up in (so we won't get blessed out in Chinese by the locals who insist babies be over-dressed). We prayed together in the dark of this early morning...so humbled that God would invite us across the world to be the ones he chose to embrace this sweet baby we've been waiting 467 days to meet! It's actually here...the next post will be WITH Elita Mei - the little sister God chose to be a Digsby!!!

Oh my gosh! I got choked up as I read your blog to Don! I am so excited and I just can't wait to see the picture of you with Elita. It is late here and you should already have her! I love you and I'm praying for you.

Checking for 1st pictures of Elita-not seeing anything yet but just watched your great Video clip at the Hotel in Kunming-The Baby's bed already set up! WOW! A picture is worth a thousand words and a video is worth a million!Hope the Internet cooperates and you can get more of that out to all of us:)
