So there it is folks, only 17 more days until we have Jenna in our arms forever!!!! I just can't believe this is all hapenning. I've gotten a little further with the packing. I now have 1 large suitcase filled with just things for Jenna, not including the toys and clothes I plan to bring for her. It consists mostly of medication, diapers, wipes, etc. I don't know how I'm going to fit everything into 4 suitcases! I guess there will be some packing, unpacking and re-packing to be done in the next few days! Wish me luck!
