It finally dawned on me that once I cropped the other little girl out of these pictures, I could post them 😉 What cracks me up about these is that it looks like the lady has quite a hold on him… he looks like he’s rarin’ to go!! I am SO excited to see for myself what this little peanut is all about!!!
Did I mention we leave in 9 days!??
Did I mention we leave in 9 days!??
I want to hug him!! I can only imagine how YOU feel! 😉
9 DAYS!!!! WOW!!!!
What a CUTIE! It does look like she is trying to keep him from taking off … looks like you will be busy chasing a precious little boy around China in a FEW days! Can’t wait to see him in your arms!
mommy to Shepherd’s friend 🙂
cuteness is right! He is precious!!!! I can’t wait to follow your journey. Did you start a journey site yet?
Ahhh, it looks like he is looking right at his momma and wanting to leap into your arms!! It won’t be long and he can!!
What a precious smile. I know your arms are aching to hold him. I bet these last 9 days fly by, but seem like an eternity. Looking forward to pics with him in your arms!
I know you still have nine days but I sure bet you are going to be run off your feet before then! So I am going to get in early and wish you VERY safe travels…
I will pray that everything will go the way it should!

Oh Stef, he is SO CUTE! I just caught up with your blog and am thrilled to hear that you AND Chris get to travel together. Enjoy your time as a couple and then with your precious Shepherd. Can’t wait to follow your journey.
Oh, and get ready to sweat. It’s awful in Guangzhou right now – so humid, rainy and hot. We had a great time, but sweating gets old — fast.
Much love and wishes for happy travels,
PS: I discovered a place on our last day in Guangzhou that I wished I had found at the beginning: Susan’s Place. The store is just the typical store, but there is a man there that will make various teas for you while you sit with him at a beautiful driftwood tea table. Of course, then you feel obligated to buy something, but it was a really neat experience. Addison plopped himself down and joined us for tea, too. If you go, mention us (he’ll probably remember Addison, especially if you mention “the cute boy with one eye”). wink!
YEAH!!! 9 days!!!!!
I’m SOOOOOO excited for you!!!
Glad your wait is almost over!
What a cutie!!
I’ve got my pom-poms ready and I’m warming up the cheap seats!
Go, Shepard, GO!

Shepherd is absolutely ADORABLE…what a precious gift from the Lord. I frequent your blog and have been delighted and encouraged by your writings (especially the recent Oswald Chambers quote…came at a perfect time) Again, wanted to finally post after months of staying in touch with your family and let you know that you are in my prayers as you journey to bring your Shepherd home. May the Lord pour out a fountain of blessings upon you as you travel. May He go before you each step of the way creating a peaceful trip full of beautiful moments and may Shepherd be fully prepared and ready for his mama and daddy.
I also wanted to tell you that after planning it for a while, I just ordered my custom jewelry from Tracy at Junkposse! Thanks for sharing the info about yours, it’s just gorgeous!
Shepherd is just adorable! Praying for your last days of preparing for the trip, for your kiddos as they are home while you are gone, for details to come together for treatment once you get home, and especially for Sheperd. May God’s blessing be upon you!
Are you all packed and ready to go? 🙂
Oh you leave in only nine days!
So happy for you, enjoy the journey! Can’t wait to follow along too.
i can’t believe how big he looks….such a boy face, not a baby!
