We are in!!! On Thursday we got our provincial appointment, on Friday we got our consulate appointment, and then the plane tickets were re booked (by the way I don't recommend travel to China in July...tickets are about $350.00 more a piece than in June...just reinforces the blessing that we didn't have to pay the change ticket fee...guess they got it back and more :)! What a way to start the weekend. I'm counting down...25 days until we leave, 13 work days, and 1 quick trip to the beach with the family prior to leaving. I think I will make it.

Thanks to everyone who has gotten me through the last few meltdowns...hopefully all of those are behind us! Only happy thoughts of how I will make 17 days of traveling only weigh 44 pounds in a suitcase...scary!

Still waiting for Shelby...

Our wait for Shelby began on September 13, 2005. We are now very close to being with our angel. We hope to travel in early 2009. This has been a journey filled with many highs and lows. I want to take this oppportunity to thank everyone who has stood by me and prayed for us. My mom-she has been on this roller coaster from the first informational meeting and we take turns keeping each other grounded, my family-my grandma who helped me have the best nursery ever and my LA gang-for not giving up that they will soon have another niece and cousin, friends-way to many to name but I'm going to try (and if I leave someone out don't fret we will call it a paper pregnancy moment)-Lauri (all the cards), the Wardskis, Jen., Lisa, Sheri, Tiffany, my Hillcrest UMC friends...always patiently letting me cry, vent, and forever guess at what China will do next, and last but not least my work family-I can't even begin to express how they have kept me lifted up...from Sally starting her hair bow collection, Chinese New Year celebrations, Sebrina always keeping up with the rumor queen and marking the days off as we get them, and finally all the cards and pick me ups left quietly on my desk at the most needed times. They always know when the end of the month comes (referral time) I need a shoulder and pep talk and never waiver in staying positive. So thank you all again for what you have done and all that I know you will do until we have "Shelby Marie from Tennessee" (from the famous ? my dad had for her in her quilt scrapbook "Shelby Marie are you really from Tennessee...you look Chinese to me")
