I think we're okay?

Iyiyi...what a roller coaster of a week. I foolishly thought this was going a slam dunk after we received Kate's referral and the fast PA, LOA...oh, silly moi!

However, at least as it stands this minute (since things are changing on the dime), it looks like we will still be allowed to travel and hopefully should receive our travel approval from China next week so we can start making arrangements to get our girl. Thanks so much for all your encouraging words and e-mails, it's been such a comfort with the uncertainty of the situation.

Happy May Day and to my fellow Kentuckians...Happy Derby...where all the beautiful people hang the first Saturday in May.


  1. WooHoo! So glad to hear that at this point, things are still a "Go"!!! Will keep praying!

  2. I am also glad to hear you are still on track! Have a great weekend!

  3. Yea! So glad to hear the good news. Let me know if you guys need anything for your upcoming trip!

    Happy May Day and Happy Derby weekend!
