Guess what's winging its way from China right NOW.....

Our Travel Approval!!!!!  In record time!

I nearly hyperventilated last night when I read the e-mail.  "Can you be ready to leave next week?" they asked.

Breathe in.  Breathe out.  Breathe in.  Breathe out.

I almost scrapped our whole plan of taking all the kids during Spring Break. Yun Xi could be leaving the orphanage forever NEXT WEEK!  But, common sense prevailed and our kid's pleading eyes convinced us that waiting until Spring Break would be the better route.

But it's killing me.  Seriously.

Congratulations!! Waiting will be worth it. I know how hard it is. We had to wait out our first TA (3 months) and request it to be re-issued so the whole family could go. Time will go by fast.

When is spring break there? I guess a better question is when are you planning on leaving to go there?

I think Jessica must have been signed in on my computer without me knowing because that last comment says it is from her. But actually it is me that wants to know.

Our Spring Break is at the end of March. We plan to leave on March 24th.

Oh Eileen! I can't even imagine waiting, but I'm sure you'll be so glad when your whole family can be a part of the happy occasion! They will remember it forever, you will remember it forever and your NEW addition will remember it forever :) I can't wait to see the photos and SOOOO wish I was going to document it for you :)
