T minus 7 days.

In just 7 short days we will be boarding a flight to Bangkok.  Can you believe it??

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of paperwork and mini panic attacks – the night we bought our tickets I almost threw up.

So far we have 4 partially full suitcases on the floor in the living room, 3 kids in school waiting for the day to come where they’ll have lots of time off, 100 rolls of film ready for take off, and 5 very anxious travelers!  However – there is one very important thing we do not yet have – travel approval.  We do not yet have our Article 5 from the US Embassy and this means that we do not yet have a date with the child adoption board.  We’re not TOO worried about it yet because all of our paperwork is at the embassy so it should just be a matter of days before our Article 5 is issued, but there’s always the chance that it could not be issued until after we’ve already landed in country.  Worst case we will just have to wait for the next meeting with the child adoption board (2 weeks after our projected date of October 1st.)  Matt and I thought about it hard and our little man turns 9 on the 20th of this month and we just couldn’t stand to miss another birthday.  We’re taking a leap that our paperwork will be done on time so that we can spend King’s birthday with him.  Please keep your fingers crossed for us!!

    SO EXCITED FOR YOUR FAMILY!!!
    Very, very happy that it is FINALLY happening :)
    Thailand “recommended” that we bring our kids. It really made the transition for W. much easier – though the trip ended up being twice as expensive.
    If King needs someone to “talk Thai” with in the States, I’m sure W. will be happy to chat.
    We’ll have to talk more before you go.
    ALL THE BEST!

    OH MY GOSH! I can’t believe it’s FINALLY here. We are crossing everything and praying that it will all work out. I’m sure the transition will be an experience for all of you, but let’s get this show on the road. Can’t wait to see HIS FACE on the otehr side of your lense. Hugs to you friend!
