It Came :)

DSC_5538

I got two deliveries today. The first was this adorable blanket for Miss Gracie Joy. I LOVE it! I got it HERE. I hope she loves it too!!

The second was my TA! Yes, I am very excited to have gotten it before the Aug. 1 rule change. But it is bitter-sweet with the news that I will not be able to leave next Friday with my dear friends Diana and Stacy. I am sad. It just doesn't seem right to be this close and miss it by 1 week! The best news is that I get to meet my girl in just a couple of weeks :) I can't wait!

I will let you know when I have more info!

Hay Jen,

Im so sorry about missing traveling with friends. I know that is a disappointment :( We had the same thing with Finley. A bunch of my RQ friends and I got our TA's on the same day but they all got their CA's 5 days or so before me and I was stuck on this added day of CA's that no one else that I knew had. I was sad for about 1.5 min before I realized I was only a couple weeks away from getting my little girl!!I know you feel the same and I am so happy for you. I cant wait to see her in your arms!!!!

God is seldom early, but He's never late! So glad you got your TA and are just a few days away from finally getting your hands on Miss Gracie Joy! Cannot wait to see the pics. So excited for yall and for Miss Gracie. She has no idea how her life is about to change for the better. :) And the blanket is just adorable!!!

DiJo said...

Good grief.. I am teary just commenting on this post. You know I am sooooooo happy you got your TA.. And, soooooo thankful you are not going to have multiple post placement meetings with your sweet SW.. But, so selfishly sad that we are not going to be in GZ with Gracie Joy and Emme Jade together... That's what I get for having that photo shoot in my head for months... I know God has a very special reason for you being there one week after me... Just know, I will be glued to my computer in Guangzhou as you are in Changsha meeting one of my favorite Pearl River girls!!!! It is going to be a very special day, even across the miles.. I just may jump on that plane to Changsha. Never say never! I love you friend. And, I am so very thankful that God chose the miracle of adoption to bless us with our very special friendship!!!! I have so enjoyed this journey with you!!! I love you sister!!!

Blessings as you get packing!!!!

THE JOURNEY TO HANNAH said...

That's awesome Jen. I pray that all goes well and she will be swiftly in your arms. I'm sorry that you won't be going with Stacy. You will have to ask God why someday when you see Him in person. I miss and love you.

Heidi said...

Wow Jennifer!! So excited for you and Richard as the journey to unite with Gracie becomes a reality!! Will keep checking in for details and you will be in our thoughts and prayers continuously as will the boys and little miss Wesleigh...and of course your Mom and Dad!!

Kim said...

We can not wait to see Gracie in your arms. We have been praying for your family and Gracie. We love her so much and so excited that she has a forever family! It has been a joy to sponsor Gracie and pray for her! God is so GOOD!

Oh Jen. I am SO happy that you finally got your TA but so sad and disappointed for you and Di. I really was hoping and praying that you would be able to share this special time in China together. I know you have become so close throughout this journey and you have such a bind and special friendship. Big hugs.
