Art. 5

Nope, it's not a class, it's our Article 5!!!! It has been issued and picked up, and is now on it's way to the Ch*na side of things. Once they get it, they will issue what is called Travel Approval or TA. So we are officially waiting on TA!!! I am so beyong excited and can hardly gather a complete thought. Oh my brain is mush, and my heart is racing!! My baby will be in my arms really really soon!!! Blessings, Tasha

Cabled & Article 5 Drop Off

So yesterday we were cabled!! Today our Article 5 is getting dropped off. I have no idea what it is, but we wait 2 weeks exactly for it to be picked up. So it should be picked up on May 22nd. Once Article 5 is picked up, we will then be waiting for TA. On average, that wait is 2 weeks or slightly a little more. Basically, we are expecting to be buying plane tickets in just one month!!! So now, I know that we have a 2 week break from obsessing over the emails. It feels good. I have so many other things to get ready and plan for. I am also trying to work a little more before we leave to bring Lee home. I sew for my new etsy shop and am a Scentsy and a Velata (chocolate fondue!) representative. I am actually hoping to build the fundraising aspect of those businesses (Scentsy and Velata) for now. So if you have a fundraiser (school, sports, adoption), then I would be glad to help. The sewing is my artistic relief and mental break haha I love it! I just need to get better organized with it. I am about to have little hands running through my house and I admit I need to baby proof a little better. So unless we receive an update on Lee soon, then I won't be blogging for the next 2 weeks. Well, maybe my sewing blog or the family blog. Those need a little TLC. haha Blessings, Tasha

Next Month

The thought that keeps running through my head today is that we should be holding our son and loving him forever and ever NEXT MONTH!!!! Every day, when I wake up, there is this sinking in of the realization that we will be in Ch*na next month with our son in tow. This is the same place, half way round the world, where we would threaten to kick our little sibblings' butts to because it was that.far.away. It's halfway around the world! Yikes!! and at the same time, whoa!! Each new day, is one day closer. We can't wait, and thankfully there isn't much time left to wait. Blessings, Tasha
