When I first saw Gideon's photo, months and months ago, I knew I wanted nothing more than to leap across the ocean and hug that little boy. And now, the countdown is no longer months. Not weeks. Not even days. I am now counting down the HOURS before I get on an airplane! I can hardly believe it! Merry Christmas! I am going to go love on my other little sugarplums for a few more hours now . . .
