~ A WEEK AWAY ~

A week from today, "Dan Dan" will wake up for the last time in the only home she has ever known.

Her nanny will bathe and dress her for the last time, and (hopefully) tell her that she is going on a trip to meet her mommy and daddy.

"Dan Dan" will say good-bye to all her little friends; and take a 3 hour drive. Her nanny will take her to a strange building and will hand her over to her new parents; where she will become a daughter, a sister, a granddaugther, a niece and a cousin ~ in that one second she will have a family...

She will become Mia Hope Yudan (______ ).

**Please pray that her transition into our family is peaceful,
thank you.

I have been following your blog for a few months-I hope your journey to China is safe and wonderful. Mia is so cute-I wish her a smooth transition into your family. We are also adopting a little girl with post-surgery VSD.
Good Luck and I look forward to following your journey to Mia.

Just reading about the love you have for Mia gives me chills. I hope you're posting throughout your trip because I am sure everyone is anxious to follow you on your journey. May God go before you to smoothe and straighten the path to your baby girl. I can't wait to watch the transformation in little Mia's eyes. God Bless. You're in my prayers.
