It's HERE!!! It's HERE!!! It's HERE!!! We have TA!!!

***** UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!! It's offical...we leave on Wednesday!! WE LEAVE IN 6 DAYS!!!!!! We fly out of MSP Airport on Oct. 5th and get back to the states on Oct. 22nd!!! More details to follow!!!!!

Finally...the news WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!!!!! We have TA!!! AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. I received the long LONG awaited travel call from our adoption agency!! She politely said "This is the call you've been waiting for! I have your TA in my hands!! Pack your bags because you are off to China!!" I will always remember THIS moment.................All the girls were with me at the ballet studio when the call came in. So I'm happy we got to share "the call" together.

Right now we are waiting for our Consulate Appointment confirmation in China. Until we have a specific court date we can not book flights. However, it's looking like we are leaving on W-E-D-N-E-S-D-A-Y!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We hope to have CA confirmation and flights booked today. More information to follow as sooon as I can catch my breath and not puke at the same time! We are all just so excited this is REAL and finally happening!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God is Good!
