One Week!

Yes...the day has finally arrived!  One week from today we will be meeting Lucy for the first time!  Sunday, December 6th is the day that she will be brought to our hotel by some of her orphanage workers!  What a wonderful day that will be!!!  We are a bit disappointed that we will not be able to travel to her actual orphanage so that we can see where she has spent the first 11 months of her life.  But word has it that they are not allowing anyone to the orphanages due to H1N1.
