Come one, Come all...



To welcome Mia Kareen HOME!!!!!!!



Yep, I can't believe it myself... we are only days away from being HOME!!!!

We have our embassy appointment and medical this morning and then we will pick up her Visa at the embassy Wed and then leave Thursday to head HOME, but we layover in Paris Thursday night and arrive HOME friday June 17!!!!

We feel so connected to so many people through this journey. We know so many have been a part of bringing this little girl home and little Miss Mia has so many who are following her and loving her, so we hope you all know we would LOVE you to be there at the airport to welcome her HOME! You have been a part of this miracle and we would love you to be there with us for the finale of this chapter.

If you would like to join us (and we hope you will) please meet at the airport in the International Center at 2:00. The flight is a Delta flight coming from Paris. Flight 171 if you want to check the status of it. We will have a friend updating the blog and facebook if there are changes to the arrival time. Otherwise we can't wait to see you all there!

We will also be having an open house/welcome home party at our house once we make it home (probably around 4-6pm) and would also love you to come over after the airport to our house to visit and meet our new little girl. We will be having a balloon launch for Mia to celebrate her arrival to our family.

  3. Okay, so I thought pink was Mia's color but after looking at this picture it's obvious she can pull off any color! What a doll!

    Would absolutely love to meet little Mia and her amazing Mom and Dad, but afraid that's not possible. Praying for a safe trip.

  10. Wish I could be there too. Will be there is spirit. I sent you 2 emails last night and am not sure if you have time to read them or not. I had an idea for your balloon launch. Hope you get a chance to read the emails but understand that you are probably extremely busy getting read TO COME HOME. Oh happy day :)
