We have a Consulate Appointment

Well, my Birthday is starting out really good. We have a Consulate Appointment set for Feb. 14th. I am relieved and it is starting to sink in that in about a week and a half I will be leaving to bring my daughter home. WOW !!!!!!!!!

Her room is done and it looks beautiful. I will try to post pictures later today. So now I have to wait to see what day I am leaving and book my flights. Today will be a crazy day for me.

I have no idea what we are doing for my birthday tonight. I know I don't want to go out, so I am sure that some family members will show up. My family can not miss having cake and coffee for someone's birthday. We already celebrated 4 birthdays so far this month. Mine will make the 5th.

I want to thank everyone that has listen to me rant and rave about not having a CA and for sending me well wishes and words of encouragement. Thank you!!!

I knew the Consulate would pull through! This is wonderful news!! You are in for a great adventure you will remember for the rest of your life and that you can pass on to Lily Rose. Remember every emotion, sight, sound, and smell. Reality will hit the moment you walk into the hotel room and see the crib waiting for you in the corner. My best piece of advice ... prepare yourself to go with the flow. Don't let the process ruin the first few weeks with your daughter and helping her adjust to this dramatic change in her life.

Enjoy,
Michelle in VA

YAY!!! I am so happy for you!! ITA with everything Michelle said and you know what, if there's an optional outing one day while you're there, don't feel like you HAVE to go! Most of us took advantage of at least one of these times to just relax and have some down time. I can't wait to see pics!
