Yes!!!!!!!!! We have our Embassy date of August 13th, which means we meet "T" in exactly 4 weeks from today. If our plans go as we'd like, we would leave in 2 1/2 weeks for a trip of a life time. August 11th will be her birthday as that is the day we will meet and hold her and kiss her sweet cheeks for the first time. She will be birthed into her new "Forever Family" on this day.
There is an incredible amount of things on my to do list at this point now that we know when we travel. We are trying to arrange to spend 8 days in Italy before the Embassy date, so waiting for our travel agency to call me back about that. Since we have not celebrated our 20 year anniversary (nor really our 5th, 10th or 15th anniv.) we really hope this works out that we could have this time to reflect on this monumental year from all directions.
Last night my friend Caren held a shower here at our home for "T" and I will post photos later and photos of her now finished room. You'll see my garage sale incredible finds in the pictures as well as this incredible pink fluffy jacket that Caren gave "T".....it is a show stopper...oh, and some tap shoes ... Caren is a dancer and a dance teacher, so she HAD to give her some tap shoes.
I'm off to plan ....
