The Last important Call!

The last two important calls came yesterday and today. Yesterday we got our Travel Approval (TA) and today we got our Consulate Appointment (CA) at the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou.. The CA is tentatively scheduled for April 7th and will be confirmed tomorrow. This is when Jing Ju's Visa is issued and her adoption is finalized. I have to be in China about 10 days earlier, so I'll likely leave around the 28th of March.

How will I ever sleep or function this week? I just want to sing and jump and giggle!


  1. Congratulations, I am glad you will be able to hold your little "Plum" soon. Take care and best wishes to you and your family.

  2. Our love to all three of you. Bill and I look forward to a summer with Plum in our midst. Teach her the word for dog and she'll find her way to the office in no time at all.
    She can teach us the word for dog in Chinese.

  3. Congratulations!! Here is wishing you a great and unforgetable journey to Plum! Enjoy China, your girl's birthcountry!
