Desheng Darling is so excited about traveling to China. Today, she “practiced” her airport etiquette by pulling her roller bag and wearing her backpack all around the house. She should be an expert by Saturday! LOL
DD also practiced taking care of her little sister, but I don’t think hanging Doodlebug from her backpack strap is going to be a very successful mode of transportation. We’re definitely going to have to work on this one.
Daddy Darling informed me of a typographical error in my previous post. Sorry, it should have been “an email” rather “and email.” Or maybe just plain "email." Duh!

Lastly, I have a prayer request. Please pray that the rain will hold off and that our domestic flight on Saturday will not be delayed or cancelled due to the strong storms expected in our area. If we don’t leave at the scheduled time, it will be almost impossible to make our connecting flight to Hong Kong. Thanks in advance for your prayers.

So cute! I suspect if you let her, Desheng Darling would be standing by the front door waiting until your departure on Saturday. We will be saying many prayers for the Darling family in the coming weeks!

DD looks so precious. I can tell she is so excited about getting her sister.
I will keep you in my prayers. I know exactly how you are feeling. Our agency had to fly us out 4 days earlier than expected when we were adopting Mallory. A hurricane was headed our way and we were to fly out of New Orleans on a Saturday to Chicago to meet up with our travel group to fly to China. Our agency was scared the hurricane was going to hit New Orleans and mess up our flight. We had to fly out on a Tuesday and sit in Chicago until that following Saturday. They wanted to go ahead and get us out just incase something happened. Just know that God is in control and He will take care of your every need. I am excited about following your journey to Doodlebug. I will pray for you all every day while you are gone. :)
