Tentative Travel Dates

It is one of those good news/ bad news scenarios. Good news...we are going to China to get Flora!! Bad news.....we don't leave until January 1, 2009. I am not happy about that date. I begged, pleaded but no one cared! [Imagine wasn't all about me (dripping with sarcasm)]. I, as a teacher/administrator, have 3 weeks off for the holidays, and I leave the absolute last day of the break. Same goes for the girls. They are off from school and now they must miss 2.5 weeks plus their exams. Oh, and Joe who is one class away from graduation will not get to do that onetime either. Okay. okay enough complaining.....we are going to China. Watch out Flora here we come!
And another photo!

These dates are so beyond our control that you just have to surrender to it and go with the flow. That's my advice. In a year, it will all seem very trivial.

(Now I've turned into one of those post-adoption people who says "oh, you'll be fine, trust me.." who I wanted to shake)
