2 pm at our house...

Right now we are waiting for our Travel Approval from the Chinese Gov't.  Our agency estimates it will come sometime over the next 3 weeks.   Once we get this approval, we can book our flights (2-3 weeks out).

These approvals come physically to our agency via DHL.  DHL is usually delivered to our agency around 2 pm east coast time.

So..everyday from today until we get our TA, at 2 pm, I will frantically be checking my email.  I also will be checking the blogs to see if other adoptive parents waiting for their travel approval have gotten their TA. i.e. yesterday someone that was 4 days ahead of us got their TA. I almost wet myself I was so excited for them.  

The invention of the smart phone gives me an edge here. I can be shopping, working, working out, or at home...no matter what, I have my phone and my email at my touch.  

On the plus side, Lexie is still napping so I am able to spend this time waiting for the call without her screaming in the background.

So if you want to get a hold of me...just email or call around 2 pm. I will answer. :-)
