Stork has Landed and We are Finally Next!!

China just finished placing children for the families whose adoption application documents were registered with their office before November 21, 2005.  We are November 22, so I can finally say with absolute certainty that WE ARE NEXT!!!!  We should receive our referral in the beginning of September.  So, check back then and you will finally see our baby girls picture at last.  Unfortunately, we won’t be able to travel in October due to Chinese holidays and a trade show.  The hotels stay booked, so we have to wait until November to get her.  That will be a long 2 months.  We’ll probably be in China on my birthday though and what a present that will be!!  I am so excited.  We have been working on all of this for over 2 years now and it finally seems real. 

On another note, Mel and Dave are getting ready to travel to China to pick up Ellie.  We are thrilled for them as well.  They should be leaving in the next few weeks.  So much excitement!
