One step closer

We received word that our reprint approval was sent to the National Visa Center on Friday. I'm not sure how they do that - hopefully not by snail mail - but I estimate they'll receive it by Tuesday. Once the NVC receives it, they'll cable it to ET. I'm also not sure what cabling means, but they tell me it's electronic, so that's good. It sounds old fashioned, like a telegram. My social worker and many blog friends think we're in good shape to travel as scheduled, with an Embassy date of June 9.

IF all that happens, we will board a plane on June 2nd (my 40th birthday) or 3rd so we have time for an overnight trip to Awassa before picking up our little boy, who is now 6-1/2 months old. That's a week from tomorrow! Oh my, why am I sitting at a computer?

Why indeed! So much to do and so little time, but you will pull it together. You always do. And what a wonderful birthday present. We can't wait to meet C's little brother.
Love

Oh, I am so excited for you! If you only you didn't have to worry about this one little piece of approval getting to where it has to be. And yes, you better be packing and getting ready for your son to come home. :)
