WE'RE GOING TO CHINA!!!!

Well, we received Travel Approval today. We leave November 14th. We will be there two weeks. GREAT NEWS!!!!!

Please continue to pray that our I171h process moves quickly. I won't go into details, but the US CIS is the last hurdle we must jump before leaving.

Now the stress REALLY SETS IN!!!!!! Work arrangements, final house preparation, packing, final gifts for China, I171h, last minute things we still need (another car set for example) and more!!!!! I am not sure how we are going to be able to focus the next four weeks.

We have a professionally prepared website for everyone to review when we travel. It will be updated daily when we are in China. We will post the link here prior to our departure....stay tuned.

Oh my goodness, I have goosebumps!! I can't believe Tony didn't run out in the road to flag us down last night as we went by. I'm extremely excited. I can't wait to see them. Christmas just won't be the same this year or any year to follow for that matter. Believe me, once you get them home you won't even remember what your life was like before they got here. You will wander what you did with all of your time before they came. I know we haven't known you guys for a real long time but in the short time that we have spent with you we can see that the girls will be in the most loving family. I am so excited for you both. I know you have to have all kinds of butterflies. I do and it's not me who has to fly to China to pick them up. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!
