Final Countdown!

Here's a clip from our visit in March. It was taken within the first hour of us meeting Ruby. She is holding onto some candy and her foster mom is asking her to give it to me: "Mommy"...and she does!

I have less than a week to get everything ready. I think that I have things under control...I hope! Scott is working out-of-town and can't go to Taiwan this time. It's such a great blessing that we went already and he got to meet her because it is required that happen if only one parent goes to pick up your child. God works in mysterious ways! So my Dad is going along this time to help out. It should be fun! I am hoping we have time to go the the zoo in Taipei and do some other sightseeing. We will be in Tainan for two days and Taipei for three days.

Here at home, Ruby's room is officially complete! I have a double stroller. I have two car seats. I have two of every dress Ila owns. Now I just have to start packing and let the countdown begin!

I've been planning on having some lanterns in our nursery too, but I can't decide how to hang them. How did you hang yours? To they have lights, electric or battery? It would be nice to have lights, but I have a feeling I'll be using fishing line. :) If you have a chance before you go back to St. Lucy's... let me know at journeytohannahclaire@gmail.com
