Just some thoughts

Well, today is Dec. 29th and we have not heard anything relating to our TA. I have been checking the groups that I am in and no one has heard about or seen any TA's. So I guess that we will not be leaving on Jan. 11th like I thought we were. So now I have no idea when to expect to leave. I just hope that it is before the Chinese New Year starts. C.N.Y. is Feb. 18th 2007. I believe I heard that everything closes down like a week before and stays closed for 2 weeks. So at this rate maybe it will be March that we leave. I really wanted to get Lily Rose home for my mothers 70th b'day which is in the beginning of Feb. I thought that would have been a great b'day present for her. I'm just glad that I have Joseph's communion all set. We are having it here and an old friend of mine has a party business. She has all kinds of characters and tattoos, face painting, clowns and she has that big bouncy thing. So I already called her and told her to save the date of May 12th 2007. I am really excited about his communion. I am also glad that I most likely will be home for his First Penance which is on Jan. 20th 2007. But if they were to call me and tell me that we got TA and I needed to be in China on the 20th, I would be ok with that too. I think Joseph would also be ok with that, as long as I was here for his b'day which is in the beginning of Jan.


I have Lily Rose's suitcase packed already. Can you tell we are anxious? We have an appointment with the International Specialist on Jan. 3rd to go over medications that we will need to bring to China with us. I am excited about this meeting too. I want to make sure that I have everything we need to help Lily if she gets sick or anything. I can't wait to see her in person and hold her and just kiss her face all over. Her cheek's are so round and full and she is just beautiful. We are so very blessed that we found her and she is ours. I love her just like I love my son and I haven't even seen her in person yet. It is truly amazing the bond I feel with her. I am preparing myself for her not attaching to me right away. Reading other families post while they are in China has prepared me for this. So many mothers writing that their new children are just attaching to the fathers. It's sad and hurtful but there is nothing we can do about it right now. So as long as we prepare ourselves for it, it won't hurt as much. As least that is what I am telling myself. Now if I only believed it. HAHA

Her room is coming along nicely. We just painted again, and her new furniture should be here anyday now. I can't wait to finish her room and decorate it. We just put French doors in for her. So very girlie looking. Now all we need is LILY ROSE!!!!!!
Come on you guys, leave some comments. It takes a lot of thought for me to write this stuff. Would like to know what you think and feel.

Lisa~ I can't wait to hear that you have TA!! I will say a prayer for you.
Alena bonded with Fred as soon as she woke up on Gotcha Day and two days later she was glued to me for the duration! She'll go about her way, but she'll love you both so much. Thinking of you.
