I am in shock - we got a surprise call yesterday from our agency to let us know that we had TA and we have a confirmed CA of Dec. 22nd! We leave next week to go meet our daughter!!!!!!

We have not had internet service for awhile, but I will try to post here when I can.

Many thanks to all of you have lifted our journey in prayer - please don't stop now. Please pray specifically for Zabi Chu's transition to us. We are told that she is being prepared for adoption, but really. How do you tell a 4.5 year old that everything that they have known their entire lives is about to change. How do you tell them that everyone that they have ever known will disappear, only to be replaced by people that smell different, sound different, look different. Everything in her little world is about to be turned upside down. Only God, our Mighty Father will be able to prepare her little heart for this journey that she is about to take.

Blessings to you all!



Congratulations !!! I know you have waited so long for this day. I can't wait to hear all about your trip and see pics. Will you be bringing her home on the 22nd? Write me an email when you can, I could not find your email addy. Have missed you. Blessings and Congratulations again my friend.

Congrats!! I have been stalking your blog, hoping to see those two beautiful letters ("TA") and am SO excited for you...you'll have your baby by Christmas!!

FYI, we adopted Carson at 4 yrs 1 month and Molly at 4 yrs 10 months...while not exactly seamless transitions, they went surprisingly well. (Well, once we convinced Molly to put her dress back on at Gotcha, it was smooth sailing from there on out...)

You are definitely in my prayers!

Okay, I am going to cry. I am sooo happy for you.

But, why oh why do we have to wait???

We got our TA Nov. 30, but we have to wait till January to go.


Bummer we won't meet there. Can you imagine?? Bummer.

But truly, from the bottom of my heart, I am soooo glad you get to go when you do!!
