TA!!!!


WOOHOO!! Travel Approval! We travel from July 8-July 22 or 24 - depending on the consulate appointment. That means we will meet Miss Olivia on July 13 - two days after her first birthday! We will be finding a cake of some sort for her to mash into her hair! Plus my birthday is July 15th and Lee celebrates his 40th on July 22nd! Happy Birthday to all! OH! And another correction! Our daughter is actually in Sichuan Province. Chongqing is a city, a county and a municipality, but not a province.

Oh, and for any wise guys out there, we have people stay at our house when we travel so the dogs are fed and let out...

YAY FOR TA!! YAY FOR TA!! I am so excited for you. Just beyond thrilled. And birthdays in China. And your baby will be 12 months old, and that is only one month younger than Charlotte was when we got her - and I love that age. So interactive. So much fun.

Congrats again on your TA! China does a wonderful job with their cakes! You will have no problem finding one. In fact while at the White Swan there is a bakery next store where we ordered a cake for a 1 year birthday back in 2005! They are beautiful!

Whoo Hoo!!!!!!!!! We're so excited for you guys. Can't wait to meet the little cutie!!!! I didn't realize Chongqing is in Sichuan province. We have reason to believe that Jadon is actually from Sichuan province and not from Guangdong because of the dialect he was speaking when he was taken to the orphanage.
