So with everybody back from their vacations our agent called China and was told our TA will be in the next batch (in about 2 weeks). We are praying for it to go a little faster as that will put us in China in the first of Oct and China does not allow adopters to go during that time as it is one of their biggest holidays. So if it happens that way once again we will have to set and wait until the end of the months to go get Alana. Maybe even the first of Nov. I am so tired of waiting so I am praying it will happen quicker so we can go before China closes down. Anyway at least we have good news.

Your not going to believe this!!

The person in China who is working on our file went on vacation for 2 weeks. He was suppose to be back and we were to finally find out what was going on with our TA on Thursday last week, the only day our agency is allowed to contact the CCAA. On that Wed before, Rick got an email from our adoption agent to let us know she was going on vacation the next day (you got it) THURSDAY!!!! So we didn't hear anything last week as to what was going on with our TA. We are guessing we will hear this Thursday and hope this wait is finally over for us!! I don't think there is anybody left that hasn't taken a vacation that is involved in our paperwork. We are hoping this is a good sign. But let me tell you...." WE SHOULD BE THE ONES TAKING THE VACATION"!!! :-)
