Rosboroughs: T minus 7 (days)!

Dear beloved family and friends,
The countdown now is at 7 days. Suitcases are being laden with every possible necessary contingent item--and a few clothes for ourselves, too! The rest of the week will be spent checking the scales and deciding what needs to stay home! Next Tuesday we will be on a plane, several planes...
From this point forward, we do not plan to send out "blanket" emails; rather, should you choose to follow our journey, you may do so at http://pcjjr.blogspot.com/. We don't promise anything fancy--just a simple journal of our trip (with a picture here and there!). I believe that you can send us messages that way, too, by commenting on a posting.
Also, if you would be interested in talking to us on the phone while we are there, we have set ourselves up with Skype, an Internet phone service, which we hope to be able to use in China. It is very user-friendly and best of all it's FREE to acquire and FREE to use computer-to-computer. (There is a nominal charge when calling a non-computer phone number.) Of course you will need a microphone--either built-in or external. You can see the details at http://www.skype.com/. (No, I'm not a Skype salesman...) What's more, if you have a webcam, Skype will also support the video link for free -- pretty cool! Even if you don't have one, you will be able to see us, even if we can't see you. We will be at pcrosborough on Skype, so give us a call--and remember that we will be 13 hours ahead of CST.
Most importantly, please continue to pray for God's blessing on this voyage. He has lead us thus far, and we continue to depend on Him to bring this adoption full circle. The more we learn about John-Nathan's current home, the more we want to get him here instead.
With love,
The Rosboroughs
