last post without LynnMarie

In about 137 minutes, they will hand me LynnMarie ChunAi christopher. My heart has already changed but I can not wait to love her in person. I sit here in a hotel room and my daughter is sooo very close by. I have spent a few days in her culture and its amazing. I will never be able to give her what I am experiencing.

I am scared for her. She has had a rough week and I pray we have a smooth transition. Apparently, there will be a formula run later. last night a group of us walked around and experienced the city life here. It was as Tiffany would say, simply AMAZING!!!

I can not wait for the next few hours and days and weeks and years ahead of us.

I can not believe the wait is over but the great adventure is just beginning. Some of you who have been here have been so helpful and I hope I can return the favor to those of you who will be here soon..

We love each and every one of you and LynnMarie is blessed to have all of you in her life. Our priority is to get to know here but we will post when we can!! We promise. Pray at 9pm Sunday for us as that's when we are getting sweet girl!

Amy and Michael, I'm so excited for you guys! I can so vividly remember those last few hours waiting to meet Abby. You will never, ever forget this wonderful day. I will pray for LynnMarie tonight that God will protect her little heart and that she will feel peace and that she will be comforted by her mommy and daddy. God bless all of you.

Just remember each day LynnMarie is with you, she will grow to love you just as you love her right now. The first minutes, hours and days might be hard. But it will get better each minute, hour and day.

I remember how we got Ricky. He cried and cried. Once we fed him Cheerios, we became his best friend and he never grieved after that.

Congratulations Amy and Michael.

Amy and Michael,

By now, you should have LynnMarie in your arms. I am so happy for you! How I have prayed for her over the past year, praying that she would be matched with wonderful parents. Now she is, and I am thrilled.
Be blessed!
Hug her for me.
I am praying for you all!

Well, it's about midnight our time and by now, you've met Lynn Marie. We are joyful along with you and perhaps there'll be pictures in the morning. We'll probably check several times during the night, as one of us will most likely be up and about.
Blessings to the 3 of you,
Don, Be & JMei
