Travel Date!!! Nov 11th!!!

In a rather shocking turn of events, we have been told that the CCAA has put our approval in the mail two days ago!!!

That means we get to travel to pick up Ping well before we were expecting to!

Yulin says that we will be able to travel with the Nov group - we have to arrive in Beijing by the 14th of November!

We told the kids this morning - and they were all exciting and cheering!

Maybe once the shock wears off, and we stop screaming, crying, laughing, hugging, jumping, etc... I will think of something clever and witty to say.

Until then however, YAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!! :-)


  1. Congratulations!!! The next few weeks will feel like forever, but what an amazing experience is coming! Enjoy every step.

  2. WOO HOO!!!!!! That is awesome!!!! Congrats. You will love. A couple of things still fresh in my mind from our trip last month that we were really glad about. If at all possible arrive a day or two early we found it was really helpful to have the two days to get settled before meeting Clarissa. Also, the extra ticket for the flight home was worth every penny that we paid for it. However, if booking through Anton, you need to be very clear that it's an extra seat and not just an infant ticket that you want...one of the families in our group thought that they had requested the extra seat, but ended up not having one. It took me a few calls to get it right. Then I had to call Air Canada to be sure that the three seats were together.

    Enjoy every moment!

  3. HOly cow!!! Did Roberta post this on our Faith2009 yahoo group??? How did I miss it!

    Oh Boy!!! This is so exciting!!!!!!!!

  4. Ooooohhhhhh Yeeeaaahhhh! I'm so excited for you guys! Congratulations!!!

  5. Adrian's excited......and so am I but for some reason I'm puking and criing and headachy *sigh* lol, Tomorrow I'll be dancing! Apparently I'm not the dancing up and down excited type.....just the criing in the dishcloth, sick to my stomach type. I don't think my body can handle any more good news! lol


  6. So thrilled for your family. Can't wait to follow your journey to sweet Ping. Congratulations!!!!!

  7. Thanks everyone. :-) We're pretty excited... obviously. :-)
