I wanted to take a minute to update you on our adoption journey as we get ready to leave for China in less than a week. First, I'd like to extend our thanks and gratitude to all who donated to help us finish our fundraising. We now have all the money we need to complete our trip! You are all amazing and I can't wait until Johanna is old enough to read over the blog post and comments on her fundraiser and see how many people reached out to help bring her home.
Second, I'd like to thank those of you who've had experience with adopting from China and who reached out to us with emails full of wonderful advice and encouragement. We'll definitely be better prepared as a result!
Next, a big thank you to those who've sent baby gifts. I'm unbelievably touched that someone who's never met me would make something beautiful for my little girl. What a warm and generous online community I have.
Finally, friends of ours who traveled last year were unable to access Blogger from China. I'm not sure if that's still the case, but I've lined up a friend to post any blog entries I email to her, so you will receive updates either way.
Thank you for being a part of Johanna's journey home!!
