Waiting for TA: Week 1

Happy Chinese New Year card
from my sister, Rebecca

I've heard from many adoptive mothers that waiting for Travel Approval (TA) was for them the hardest wait of all the steps. It's only been one week for us so I'm not going crazy just yet. The CCCWA -- who will be issuing our TA -- is also closed this entire week for the Chinese New Year (CNY) holidays, which means adding at least another week to our wait. I've heard different rumors about the wait after the CNY holidays but I'm going to have to go with the flow until I receive that very important call from our agency. This is our last leg of the ride and I want to try to enjoy it. In fact, my husband and I will be going out tonight for a posh dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary! I just want a slice of free cake :).

Well you are doing far better during the wait than I am.
Just sitting around twiddling my thumbs! Please have your optimism come rub off on me!

Well, it's the last leg of the wait. Then the FUN begins with more legs of the ride!

Thanks, ladies! Unfortunately, I got food poisoning on our anniversary night! :( What a great memory, huh? :O
