We're headed for Caleb in a few minutes!

**I'll catch up on yesterday soon. It was a wonderful day ~ we saw Tianamen Square, the Forbidden City, and Olympic Park.

We arrived at our hotel in Wuhan last night around 11:30pm. By the time Ian and I got the orphanage staff gifts ready, arranged Caleb's bag and made sure all the camera batteries were charged it was quite late. I opted for bed rather than posting, cause we meet Zoe (our local guide) in the hotel lobby at 8:40 to go meet Caleb! She said we will see him at 10!!!

When we walked into the room last night this sight

made it all real! I'm incredibly excited, wildly nervous, and of course in complete peace because I KNOW that God ordained this expansion of our family! We'll post again this afternoon when the kids ~ did I just say KIDS? ~ are napping!

By the way, Kylie said this morning when she woke up (she slept until 7:30 today ~ yay!) that if Caleb didn't like the crib that she would share her bed with him. So sweet!

It's real this morning!

I was just thinking you might have posted before heading out the door! I'll be thinking of you guys in the next couple of hours, knowing that Caleb will finally be with his family!

And welcome to the world of man-to-man defense... :-)

As I'm commenting, I'm sure that you are probably walking to meet him. Lord, please hold this family in Your arms as one..just as you planned. I pray that Caleb will feel the completeness of finally being united with his Daddy, Mommy, and big sister!
We love you, The Brayleys
