Thanks for the comments guys! It is nice to know someone is reading! LOL! I appreciate all the encouragement! You guys rock, seriously!

I have created our photo site for our travel photos. Obviously, there aren't many photos yet, but hopefully SOON. To access the site, just click Willa's photo to the right. It will take you directly there. Now hopefully by the time I get to China, shutterfly wont be blocked! LOL. If it is, we will try something else.

We still have not received travel approval. I am not exactly sure what is going on with it, but it isn't just ours. There are a ton of us that are still waiting. Some agencies are saying tomorrow or Monday. Our agency is not saying anything. They did tell us that we needed to receive our TA by today in order to be included in the July 8th group. So that is out, we are moving on to hoping for July 22nd. That is only 4 weeks from now. I can totally handle that! At this point, I just want to know the dates, and I'm less concerned about what the date may be.

Thanks again for the sweet comments! It really makes me feel better!

You are so lucky to have pictures of her orphanage. Our son is from Beijing, and they are very tight there-you go to the receiving room and the business office, that is all. You get the referral, that is all.

I know how you feel when you're not sure anybody is out there reading! I'm glad you got some feedback! As you wait I wanted to pass along some info, I just received the DVDs I ordered for ND and the Dora ones are excellent for teaching BOTH Chinese/English like our Spanish/English versions on normal TV here!! Just in case you are looking to keep Willa's Mandarin familiar and maybe BOTH girls entertained on the plane. I also ordered Thomas the Train and Hello Kitty--they are all in Mandarin however so it's not as fun for non Mandarin speaking people. Just an FYI--I ordered from PoppingPandas and they were GREAT throwing in a freebee or two for ND!
Also note the special on their home page. They still allowed me to take advantage of the "May Special" on their site--a free DVD for ordering $60 or more. (The Thomas DVDs were a bit spendy since it was a 10 DVD set.) Just put it in the comment section at checkout or email them right after you order.
