Leaving Hong Kong

I can't believe we are moving across the ocean...again. We have been back and forth from Hong Kong quite a few times now carrying nine 70lb suitcases/boxes. I think I am getting a little better at it, but it is still a hard process. Sarah is a bit down tonight because her hair really starting coming out as we washed it. I think it will all be gone soon. She was really sad at first but then looked as if she is accepting that it will happen. I, on the other hand, don't think I am going to be able to handle it. She just doesn't look like herself already - bloated tummy, puffy face, wrinkled and dry hands and feet. And she doesn't smile much since she is constantly nauseous and tired. I know the hard part is just beginning, but I feel like we have been through the worst nightmare already.
We fly out in the morning to the States. So for the next 36 hours, please pray for us as you remember our travels. Hannah had a stomach bug in the wee hours of the morning today complete with running out both ends. It has been a rough day, but so far her quarantine has kept the rest of us free of the stomach bug.
Even in the midst of these circumstances, God is tangibly leading us and providing for our needs through all of you who continue to take care of us, those here in Hong Kong who have helped us get to this point and those in the States who are preparing for our arrival. We have never felt such love from so many.
Thank you , thank you.

Oh Anne- I can't wait to hug you! You are a great mom and even though you didn't know it at the time, you've prepared Sarah Grace for this journey. My living room is full of things people have dropped off for you guys! We'll get it all to your new home tomorrow before you arrive. Praying for traveling mercies for all of you! -Becca

I'm sad I didn't get to hug you "good bye"....but I'm hoping to give you all a huge hug when we're back in the States this summer...Dallas isn't that far from St. Louis!!

You are being lifted up through out your whole journey...kinda cool b/c of the time zones!

You are In His Grip,
Sue, Robert, & Lily :)
