One more day....Adieu!

We leave you with words from one of our favorites: The Sound of Music!

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu

Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye

I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye -- Goodbye!

I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie

I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly

The sun has gone to bed and so must I

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye


We'll probably post in LA since we'll be there a really long time! Then after that check our new site for updates. Thank you for your prayers...we feel them!
Kimmie and Quan, HERE WE COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is the sweetest picture of the girls. Wow if that don't make you cry. I like ALL the luggage. It looks like you did really good. We are praying continuously for your safe return, smooth transition for your family into China and everyones health and also for the babies- Take care and we can't wait to read more. I listened a lot to my mp3 player on the way to New York. I kept playing this song over and over and thinking of you and Rob. It is called THE REASON-by The Crabb Family-It reminds me of yall so much. You never gave up-you kept focused on the babies through the good times and hard times and now you are going to receive your rewards. I love yall~Chi-Chi~

You will all be in our prayers as you travel to Kimmie and Quan. You are about to see, first-hand, what great things God can do!

God bless you!

Thanks for making me cry so early on Saturday morning. I love the Sound of Music and what an appropriate song. You guys are going to have such a great time and will get even better when you first lay eyes on those precious children. My heart is racing just thinking about how exciting that day will be when you first get to hold Kimmie and Quan. I am so happy for you guys and I can't believe you are leaving in the morning. We all love you guys very much and are praying that you have a very smooth trip and everything goes well. I can't wait to follow along when ya'll get there.
Love you guys MUCH!!

Happy Trails to you...

I guess I'm still in camping mode!

Katie Lyn, Colby, Clay, and Carlie I hope y'all have a GREAT time on this new adventure. You are very priviledged to be a part of a family that adopts and then not only that but you get to travel around the world to get your babies. You four have been amazing through this journey. You have supported you parents and that is a true blessing to them. Be sweet to Kimmie and Quan and give them all the love they never knew they could obtain!

Laine and Rob - I know your hearts are about to explode being so close to the loves of your life! You've been amazing on this journey as well. God is truly blessing you for your strength, endurance, patience, obedience...
God has shown Himself real and faithful through the Ferrill family! Continue to make Him famous!

Much love...

China or BUST!

Many, many prayers are with you all as you finally go get your babies! The videos were a wonderful, last-minute gift...Kimmie and Quan look like well-adjusted children! Don't worry, you'll soon turn Kimmie's tears into smiles, with all the love you'll shower on her and Quan. We're all anxiously awaiting those first pictures of the Ferrills as a family of EIGHT...the answer to all our prayers!
With much love, Rhonda T.
