Yep – you heard that right – we are LEAVING for CHINA in TWO days!!!
That’s the most creative I could get for these adoption acronyms, sorry ya’ll. I have lost the mind capacity to think of anything else, so Landon’s magnetic drawing board will have to do.
This past week has been an emotional roller coaster. Like I mentioned before, we had hoped to leave this week, but all of the CA’s (consulate appointments) were full for September and the next available one wasn’t until the end of October. Our TA (travel approval) didn’t get here until yesterday afternoon so we thought leaving this month was nearly impossible. Well, guess we are wrong, because we will be on a place to get our boy this Friday!!
I seriously haven’t heard of anyone leaving in two days, but in the past 10 hours we have managed to get a consulate appointment, figured out where Landon is going to stay, booked our plane tickets, had a “sprinkle” baby shower planned by some pretty amazing friends, and booked Daisy’s stay at the “Moss Resort” in North Raleigh. The next two days are going to be full of packing, paperwork, running last minute errands and telling Landon goodbye. Telling Landon “goodbye” is gonna be pretty rough…I’m not gonna lie. I am thankful he will be in good hands though!
Words cannot express how happy we are that will have our entire family together on the 28th (when we will be flying back into Raleigh). We leave for China Friday morning and will have Max in our arms THIS Monday!
Well, I am off to bed. Gotta try to get some sleep before the craziness starts again! Thanks to everyone who has been praying for us. We are so thankful for supportive friends and family!
