On Cloud 9!

I truly had almost written off today as another day to say "maybe tomorrow". But the call came!!! I am so unbelievably excited I can hardly think straight. I had really just come to the conclusion that it would probably be Feb. before we could get there. We still have to get a consulate appt., so it's not a done deal yet but hopefully tomorrow I will get another call saying we leave on the 21st!!
That's in 10 days!!
Bryce just got off the bus and when he walked in the door I said, "Guess what we got today?" He answered, right away, "travel approval!" He literally started jumping up and down sweet. Come to find out...his honor band concert was moved from this past weekend to the weekend of the 15th. He would have had to miss it had we gone with the group on the 14th. I am thankful for that!
The other boys get home in a minute. I can't wait to tell them! Cade brought fortune cookies for his class today. They were party favors at the shower my friends gave me yesterday. You wouldn't believe all the cute stuff I got! I have pictures to share but that post can wait till tomorrow.
So, I went to the dentist for a regular cleaning...I have a cavity!! Can you believe that? I guess it's better to know now. I'm going back on Thurs. to get it filled. It's either that or in a year when I can get Miss. Wesleigh off my hip ;) It's probably those darn cokes I drink all the time, but I'm not about to give those up at the moment...I'll just get the cavity filled ;)

Cant' wait to see all goodies for Wesleigh....

I just found your blog and thanks for sharing.

And Congrats on your referral! We adopted from China in 2001. It has been a wonderful experience.

My non-profit recently published a new book on Chinese adoptive parenting.

“The Dragon Sisterhood: A Guide to Chinese Adoptive Parenting” .

It can be found on our blog:

I’m wondering if you wouldn’t mind sharing that with your readers.

Thanks!Beckett Gray

Hello Jennifer!
I found your blog through Diana's blog(First a Pearl...then two Rubies!). Your Wesleigh Jane is just precious! We are also traveling on January 21st. What province is Wesleigh Jane living in? Our Sarah Martin awaits us in Hunan Province. Congratulations on your TA! Good luck and happy packing! I'm sending up some serious prayers that Diana's TA is in the mail. =)

Congratulations Jennifer! I am SO happy for you! I linked over from my friend Diana's blog. Wish I had found you sooner!! Better late than never though, right!?! ;) At least now I can follow along on your journey to China! Praying that Di's TA comes this week, too... it would be so neat if you were both traveling at the same time!

We are in the process of adopting our daughter from China, too. We are hoping for our LOA any day now!!

Happy Packing and God bless! <><
