New travel dates

We received an email from our agency at 5:10 this morning - they are awesome!!! The email confirmed our consulate appointment, but not for 7/21 - it's now 7/30! That means instead of leaving on July 5, we now are leaving on July 14. Our flight leaves at 6:10 AM on Monday morning, and we get home on Friday, Aug. 1 at 11:16 PM - LONG TRIP!!! But, we can't wait to go and get our sweet girl!! We will get Allie on July 16.

The good thing about the later CA is that it does save us over $1,000 on our airfare - which is a huge praise. Two adoptions in less than a year has been difficult on the finances, to say the least! I do have to say though, at every point that money has been due, it has been available - Praise the Lord! He always provides a way for His will!!

We were hoping for an updated photo and measurements, but it looks like we aren't going to get anything before travel, so it will be just like giving birth - we won't know what she looks like or how big (or small) she is until we see her!! Here's the first picture we saw of our sweet girl...



What a great day to get Allie. Tyler's 17th birthday is July 16th. I will always remember that date. I can't wait to meet her. I will be out of town when you get back. But, we will get together before school starts for Miss Talicee.

Oh... not long now... at least that extra few days gives you a breather to get those last minute things done that you thought you could not do before... hehe
