Waiting on our TA..

Well, it has been nearly one month since we received our referral. We have sent off our visas. We are awaiting our TA, which should arrive any day now. We have told our older girls that they are joining us in China. They are so excited!! We have some more photos of Flora to share. I just can't wait to get there.
I have two special thanks you's to post. First Ann at Red Thread China. She is a dream. She offers a service where we sent Flora a care package. In return we received new photos and updated information on Flora. Second Brian Stuy at research-China.org. He also provides a service of putting his hands on her finding ad. That is a piece of Flora's history we will always have to share with her. These two amazing people provide various other services that are crucial to adoptive (waiting) parents. All I can say is call them.....you never know what may come from those contacts.
UPDATE:Our TA came today....and we have tentative travel dates. However, I am not willing to post them yet, as I don't much care for them, and I am looking for a new travel date! I will keep you posted!
Now, for your viewing pleasure.....my girl.....Flora
