We got our TA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WE GOT IT!!!! WE HAVE OUR TRAVEL APPROVAL!!!!! We got it!! I cant believe it and I am sooooooo darn excited!! We should be leaving on January 13 which is next Thursday!! I cant believe it is here now and that we will be leaving so soon!! This is amazing!!

Anyway, as the details come in, I will let you know the exact details of our travel and of course, I will be blogging the whole time so you can follow our journey here.

Ms. Wang has begun to send me baby pictures of Finley and is going to burn a DVD and get all her development stats for me-- yaaa!! This info is invaluable!! Here are some of them.

Oh my goodness-- I just want to squeeze her!!!

Could not love this picture more!! She is so squishy and sweet!!!

I think this was this past summer. Finley with Ms. Wang

Beautiful Betty with Finley!! Betty was adopted back in June to a wonderful family in Florida. Her grandparents who volunteer at Fushun regularly have been pivotal in creating the contacts with our Guide as well as Ms. Wang!!

Too cute!!


Love this one. Ever noticed she always has something in her hand that she is eating. Guess we know what she likes to do--- eat!!!!

Another food picture. She is so adorable!!! They dress her so cute!

  7. Congratulations!! We are leaving next week!! Maybe we will see each other in Guangzhou.

  8. So excited for you! She is just gorgeous. I can't wait to follow you over there, but even moreso to meet her when you get home!

  9. Christy!
    So happy for you.. And, so in awe of how God has protected Finley! Ms. Wang is going to be sad to let her go... But, like we experienced with Sienna, Finley's grief will be because she was loved! That is such a blessing. And, that you will forever have these ties to her family and friends. I know you will be reunited with these precious people who have taken care of your girl. It is going to be an amazing trip! I will be praying for you!
