We’re goin’ to China, baybeeeee!!!

It’s been a whirlwind week, already!! I received the much anticipated ‘call’ on my cell as I was perusing WalMart of all places 😉 Click here for the full story. Anyway, we’re all freaking out because it’s actually almost time to go! We received our confirmed Consulate Appointment (CA) today so we’re ready to book our flights and start packing!! We are set to leave the US on June 12th, fly into Fuzhou on June 17th and meet our precious boy on June 18th!!! That gives me exactly 3 weeks to get everything done in my house that I have put off for the last 103 days, as I sat and waited on my TA to arrive…

    If it makes you feel any better, last year when I got our TA for Alenna I got into a minor car accident and then forgot my drivers license at a store, and had to go back for it. My brain was total mush for a week. 😉 Thankfully everything came together fine. I will be praying for you. Christy

Loved the update on Jude’s site too- the pics are awesome, I can’t imagine it’s easy getting all 6 kids to sit still long enough to shoot a pic… and then, that cose up of the Visa?? Woman. I am in envy of that 100mm lens- my 50mm seems so puny now!
