Adopting a child won't change the world, but for that child their world will change.

Moving fast!!

I knew there would come a day when all of sudden everything would move extremely quickly.  Our file was cabled to the embassy in China on Friday.  I called our agency this morning and she said that Seth's article V paperwork will be dropped off tonight while we are sleeping and picked up on the 14th or 15th.  Jayden's took two-and-a-half weeks.  At that point the boys files will be together...hallelujah!!  Then everything will be faxed to the CCCWA(The China Center for Children's Welfare and Adoption) so they can start working on our Travel Approval.  They are also sent a hard copy and as soon as they receive the hard copy which should be Monday, they will fax our travel approval to our agency.  Our social worker told us to be ready to go sometime between March 23rd and the 30th.  We are hoping to beat the big trade show that is coming to Guangzhou April 15th because all of the prices are tripled during that time.   

With Maylin's adoption it was the same way...we got our approval to go and ten days later we were leaving.  It is a mixture of excitement and total anxiety of having to leave my kids and traveling across that very large ocean of water. 

I am praying that God will continue to provide me with the same peace I have had throughout this journey...
