We have plane tickets!!!

Oh my goodness, this just got real!!!

Before I say anything else, let me say that God is amazing! Just Wednesday night we were back in the "unthinkable pattern" of knowing it would be possible we wouldn't meet Kylie until March. Now just over 48 hours later, we have plane tickets and will meet our darling daughter on Monday, February 5th!

Okay, so here's the run down... I was feeling kinda icky again (love my preschoolers, but they have this thing about coughing in your face) and decided to sleep late today ~ yesterday was my last day in anticipation of leaving next week. So I came downstairs and greeted Ian and Maya and decided to check my email while my cup of coffee brewed. And there was one from AWAA that stated our consulate appointments were confirmed and we'd be leaving on the 1st.

Next came emails giving our tentative flight itinerary for us to review as we waited for them to call us and go over the details. We waited, and waited and finally got our call. The only problem with ours was that our family has to come home early due to the CCC Charity Ball ~ I can't believe Ian and I are missing it this year, we had so hoped to introduce our CCC family to Kylie at the event. So it was a nervous few hours after we told Ashley that they needed to come back early and she said, "I'll have to ask our head travel coordinator and I'll get right back to you."

After two hours of silence, the phone finally rang again with her cheery voice on the end of the line saying, "I have good news about the switch for your family..."

All that to say that we do have tickets. We leave on the first and fly to Beijing through Chicago. We will be meeting Kylie on Monday the 5th of February (two years and one day after submitting our initial application to AWAA ~ wonder if with the time zone thing if we will actually be meeting her on the 4th in US time?)
