A note from the girlies...




Yes, day 52!!!!!!!! I came home from swimming and mom said, "I was going to make spaghetti but........ I think that....... we might need to eat some..... Chinese." Too scared to get my hopes up, I said, "Are you trying to tell me something?" She started smiling and nodding...

PRAISE GOD!!!! One HUGE step closer to our sweet Charlie! We are thinking we'll be going to China in APRIL!!!!

Hooray!!! Oh that is so exciting for you guys! Happy paperwork filling out and may your TA come in record time!

Julie said...

Yay! How exciting! So what exactly does that mean? That CHINA has approved of the adoption, and all you have left is the Travel Approval (TA) that gives the dates that you can travel? That's what I understood when I googled it lol.
