We have arrived in Manila. If you count the time we left home and drove to Toronto, we've been traveling for over 24 hours. Both flights went fantastically! We're exhausted and feeling really yucky, so it's showers all around. Then sleep. I hope we're not too excited to sleep...

The weather is hot and humid, it must have rained earlier. Our hotel is beautiful, but we're only here one night for tomorrow is the day that we FINALLY get to meet our new daughters! After over ten months of waiting with only some photos to look at, we we finally get to hold them and talk to them and best of all bring them home to become part of our family!!

We have one more flight tomorrow, but it's only an hour long and the girls will be waiting for us at the airport!



  1. amazing. so thankful you're almost there. enjoy....
    we'll keep praying.

  2. I am so very excited for you! I'll be praying for you all.
