My dearest Will,
Today is the day that your dad and I are on our way to China to pick you up! We are on a long flight from Houston to San Francisco to Beijing. We have the film crew with us as they are excited almost as much as we are to see you come home!
There are many people that have been there supporting us along this journey and you deserve to get to know how each one of them helped us find you and get you home.
Your daddy is sleeping right now… We are only 4 hrs into the 12 hr flight to Beijing. I took a picture so you could see how peaceful he is knowing that you are about to be in our arms!
Your dad has worked so hard to get all the complicated paperwork in and we are fortunate in that less than a year from when we first saw your beautiful face, we are getting to bring you home!
I know the last couple of weeks have been both exciting and rough on you… Learning about us and seeing who we are. We will get to meet you in less than 48 hrs, but unfortunately will not get to take you home with us until over 72 hrs. we hope you like us as we already love you more than life itself. Although we may not have been there when you were first born, you were born to be our son and we feel privileged to have this opportunity to be your parents. I hope as your foster home moves you to your orphanage in Hohhot you can hold on tight to your flying lion! He is a protector and will keep you safe until mommy and daddy are with you forever! Hang in there son, we will meet you soon!
Mom and Dad
