LOA AT 90 DAYS!

I just got the call!!! It's official. Our letter of acceptance is at our adoption agency. They are Fed Exing it to my house. Russ and I have to sign it and Fed Ex it back tomorrow! YAY!!! Then we wait for TA- travel approval which takes 2 or 3 weeks. Then we get our appointment and travel! Looking at the calendar I am suspecting that we will leave for China sometime between May 14th and June 4th. I guess we will see. I am SO excited but also so tired that I am not feeling as giddy as I know I am sure to feel in the coming days. MY BABY IS COMING HOME! WOW!!! It's actually happening. I am so excited!!! Before I know it I will heading BACK over to the other side of the world to bring back my beautiful little Chinese princess!!! I can't wait to hold her. OK WHOA! I think it's starting to hit me. OH MY GOSH! OK... that's all I can take... I gotta go take a nap. Just kidding! MAYBE! I AM GOING TO GO TO CHINA SOON!!!!!!!! YIPPEEE! Angel

YAY! THat is so exciting- and so soon! Can't wait to hear about Ethiopia! DO you have any idea what month you will be going in next time? If not, that's totally fine, but I was just wondering because if it's during a time that I can't go (because of school) I want to start looking for a program or group that I can go with!
