Shhh...... I have something important to tell you!

Shhhhhh BLOG

WE FINALLY GOT OUR TRAVEL APPROVAL!!!!!

HOORAY!!!

I was beginning to lose hope as travel approvals started to arrive yesterday, but ours did not come in.

After sitting on my hands all morning, I finally caved and called in around 2pm and they said it hadn't arrived......

about an hour later the phone rang and guess what?

They got their delivery, later than normal and it contained our travel approval.

Thank heavens...... prayers have been answered!

Not knowing was stressing me out and causing major anxiety.

Our agency put in a request for our Consulate Appointment just minutes ago and we will know if they accepted it by Wednesday.

We will be leaving on either Friday, October 15th or Friday, October 22nd....... of course our hopes are set on the 15th, but it is out of our control at this point.

Another step closer to our sweet little Reagan!

Only one more piece of information and we will be officially planning our travel.

I can't think of a better way to kick off the weekend.

Cheers my friends..... It is time to go celebrate!
