We have TRAVEL dates!!

We are going to Taiwan to meet our new son, Kyle!  Finally, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter each day!!

We have our Forever Family Day on November 16th and 
our AIT appt on the 17th!!!  

We are up to finding a hotel which has proven to be a bit of a challenge.  All of the hotels I previously looked at will not work for us as a traveling family of four!  (that sounded like a circus??   LOL)  We need a hotel room that has two double beds in it.  This sounds pretty reasonable right?  No.  Double beds so far have been two twin beds in a room!  Nope, that's not going to work.   Double beds aren't as common as you would think.  I'm being a bit cheap here, but two rooms wasn't in the budget. But THANKS to several other families who have traveled this journey before us, and a post on Facebook, those endlessly supportive and always there for you families, have given me a list of about ten possibilities that I plan on checking tonight!  I'm not on Facebook alot, but after my panic set in, I needed help!  They were there for me.   I am very grateful for all the families and friends I have made there as part of this adoption!!!  

I am also checking with two travel agents for comparison pricing on airfare.  As the traveling family (circus) of four, this is not going to be cheap!  So to get the most for my money, shopping for this is a must!    Now I just need the planets to align once more for the prices to come back fair, the hotels to have big beds and good western style breakfast (eggs bacon, bread, fruit and lots of carbs) and then we will book it all!

We are so excited here!!  After finishing this huge task of circus trip planning, I'm will be finishing Kyle's room, cleaning the rest of the basement and starting to pack.  Pictures will follow of his room.  Can't wait for that!

And I know I've mentioned this before, but I still have a few dolls ( Kids (dolls) need a Good Home ) that still need a new family to love them if anyone is still interested.  There were a few people interested but I was having trouble responding to them, emails and Google weren't cooperating.  So if you were interested and I didn't get back to you, I'm sorry.  Due to technology and myself not always getting along, please try to reach me again!!

New Pictures :)

We received new pictures of Kyle!!   He is wearing one of the tee shirts we sent to him in our first care package.  So exciting!!!  What do you think he's thinking here...?    :)

It might just be me, but he looks taller here.  Maybe it's just the angle of the camera, I don't know....
It doesn't really matter, we just can't wait to meet him and bring him home!  We have been building his library and are looking forward to reading all the books to him, just before tucking him into bed, after giving him a fun bath, making a mess all over the bathroom floor and covering him with lots and lots of good night KISSES!!!!  Keep your fingers crossed for travel date confirmations SOON!!!
