TA !!!

It's official ! We have our Travel Approval ( TA) from China !!!
Lot's of HAPPY DANCE 'n going on at the house today.

Our official travel dates are Dec.22 - Jan 9. We should be holding Maggie for the first time on Dec.28 th !!
That means : 15 more sleeps till we leave for CHINA and 21 more sleeps till we see Maggie.

Praise the Lord and Hallelujah !! It felt we would never get to this point !

I have a lot of packing and more list making to do.
I'm also trying to really spend time with the boys and LOVE on them.  They are not going with us and it will be very, very hard to be away from them.  Thankfully, we can  SKYPE and talk with them from China.  They will be in the best care and spending lots of time with cousins and Aunts and Uncles.

Yeah! Looks like we'll travel together! However we probably won't meet until Guangzhou since we are going late. What province will you be going to for your daughter? We are going to Jiangsu. Nice to "meet" you!
