we are in CHINA

Not much time to blog right now but we are here. Got in late last night. Toured the Great wall today, rode a rickshaw, etc. The temperatures were mild and it was over cast. But tomorrow should be very hot. Hope to check back in soon. From Beijing, goodnight.

2 weeks, 4 days, and counting!!

what do I do first? Can you say whirlwind?

I'm happy my mom will be here soon to help me clothes shop for the trip, pick up the local-flavor gifts for the orphanage, take care of odds and ends, assist with packing which includes not only clothes but a small pharmacy and important paper work.

I cant believe I have to fit in fix-it jobs around the house, and medical appts all before travel.

No time left!!!!

Oh, add the hair cut in there.

Mundane things are now all like big boulders in the stream. I know I will get past them, but it will take some flexibility and maneuvering!

My social and work calendars are FULL. There will be nothing more added between now and travel. (actually, I believe our social worker is coming by too, note to self, check-in and add to the calendar)

We are coming Phoebe! Praying for you and your caregivers, honey!

In one month plus a few days Phoebe will see this darling doggie face, I wonder what she will think?

Blessings, Lynette

CA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our visa appt for Phoebe is in GZ on July 10th!


I have chills.

I'm still holding out hope that a dear internet friend can be there with us, Rose, I am praying.

Here are some fun pics of gifts from from my secret pal, and from Rose; I also included a pic of the flowers my preschool class presented to me upon the graduation ceremony with my co-Teacher.

I have some things to get out in the mail myself, I better get a move on and send them SOON!!!!

Blessings, Lynette

It's a great day! We have TA!

TA (Travel Approval) was today:
20 days from the day that we rec'd our consulate email, the next day Holt Int'l picked up our A5.

We hope to travel in Holt's end of June, or early July travel groups. 

 Blessings, Lynette
