Today is THE day

Nearly 7 years ago, Simon and I sat in a van riding to the Civil Affairs Office in Chongqing to meet Gracie for the first time. We were pretty quiet on that ride--anticipating what the next moments, days, weeks, and years would be like. I'm sure our hearts were beating wildly! In fact, our guide, Michael, broke into our silence and said, "I can hear your heart beat."

Can you hear my heart beat today?




Gemma's bed is all ready to go!



This is our "to do" list for Gotcha Day. I especially like #8. :)
