Traveling to China

We found out yesterday that our Article 5 is complete & now all we are waiting on is our travel approval. These normally take about 2-3 weeks, however they have seen alot happening quickly lately, some as soon as 3 days. If we receive our approval in the next few weeks, we will be in the agency's July 11th group...yes, you read the in we will be in China in a few weeks!

While I am excited, I am currently in freak out mode! I am starting to understand what pregnant woman feel right before they have their baby...that 'holy shit, I am really having a baby' moment. The, my life will never be the same..omg, what have I gotten into, there is no turning back now moment...yep, that is me right now, between the 50,000 list of things I need to do, pack & have ready before leaving.

I am so pumped at the idea of getting to go get our little boy a month before we planned...but wow, just wow, that is really fast, how will I ever get everything done at home & work in the next few weeks....crap!!

My friends keep telling me that this is all normal..I sure hope so!!

For those of you adopting, I will be keeping all my list & posting them in order to help you when it comes time to travel...any help you can get is worth it, at least that is how I feel!!


  1. Wow, so exciting! Good luck... and yes your panic is completely normal. Believe it or not, you'll miss it. :)

  2. So excited for you! Good luck on getting your to-dos done :)
