The light at the end of the tunnel!

At 1:45 this afternoon we received a call from our case worker at Cradle of Hope Adoption Center. Our Letter Of Acceptance (LOA) arrived from China. After we sign and return it to China our travel invitation to go to China should arrive 2 to 4 weeks from now, and we should leave for China approximately 2 weeks later. That means we should be in China sometime between the last week of May and the first week of June. We should be with Paul William sometime around Memorial Day. Hang on little buddy, we're coming to get you!

Thank you

Those two words seem so totally inadequate after last night.

Last night many of our friends and family joined us for an evening of celebrating our upcoming trip to China to bring Paul William home. It was truly an amazing night. It means more than we can ever explain to know that so many of you support us in this journey.

Paul William already has many new friends and family members. We can't wait to bring him home so that you will all be able to meet him and share in the joy of the beginning of his new life.

We especially would like to thank our dear friends who hosted last night's celebration. The Borths, the Gleasons, the Loyds, the Helspers and the Werlings. You are dear and wonderful friends that will always hold a special place in our hearts. Every time we look at Paul William we will remember what you have done to make it possible for Paul William to come home to all of us.

We are forever humbled and grateful to you all.

Again, Thank You, and may God bless you,

Greg and Mary Louise

One Year Ago . . .

It is hard to believe this journey began one year ago this week. At times it seemed as though time was standing still and we would never get to China. Now looking back it's hard to believe a year in Paul Williams young life has passed without us being with him. We started the process thinking we were adopting a 2 year old, and now he will be closer to a 3 year old.
