Travel Dates - Kind Of!

We got a call today and are scheduled to meet our little girl! Turns out we have to do a first initial trip to meet her and then will have a second trip later to bring her home. So, while we will be traveling soon, it won't be the forever trip just yet.

We are to be in Warsaw on April 19th. Then, we will meet K on April 20th!

I cannot even begin to express how excited we are. We will finally meet her and hold her in less than a month! We are a bit bummed that we have to do this in separate trips, but whatever it takes to bring her home is what we will do.

Then, we understand, that the second trip may be about 2 months after this trip. Here is hoping that it comes sooner than later!

So now we will be busy getting her room together and figuring out what we need to pack, buy, have, etc. We registered at Target and my work is having a shower this Friday! I love that we are doing it now because it will give us some stuff to really get the room underway and some things to bring with us for the first trip. It will also help us figure out what we don't have and what we need.

Thank you for following our journey and for your support and encouragement. Boy, hasn't it been a long and tenuous one? It isn't over yet, but this is the light at the end of the tunnel...and the whole goal of the process. Finally, after all of these years, we will meet our daughter in April 2009.

That is so awesome, you will be able to find out sizes, shoe and clothes and maybe even some favorite foods, colors and such!

Yea!! This is so exciting! Coming home without her the first time will be tough, but you will be with her in less than 4 weeks! Wow!!


Congratulations on the travel dates. Let the count down begin :)

Congratulations! After you get K home you won't even remember the time you had to spend away from her.

Congratulations! We are still waiting for our travel date but should hear any day.

What have you been told to bring/what are you bringing with you? What area of the country will you be going to? We are headed to the North.

Please PM to keep in touch since we might be in Poland at the same time.
