Our Article 5 was picked up on Tuesday, March 6th, so we are now officially waiting for our Travel Approval (TA)!!!!!!!! This is the LAST step before we travel to China! I cannot believe that we are at this point. It has been a long fifteen months since we started and it still seems a bit unreal. We will hopefully have our TA in 2-3 weeks and will be able to secure travel dates, airline tickets, hotel rooms, etc. We are hoping to travel in late April. We plan to go to Hong Kong first for a few days (to help with acclimating ourselves to the time difference/culture) and then we will travel to Guangzhou, which is where we will be throughout the rest of our trip. We are busy working on organizing all of our travel supplies, buying things we need, finishing his room, etc. We have a lot of little projects around the house/spring cleaning projects that need to be finished before we leave as well.
We wanted to send Jaxson one final care package, so we got everything ready today. Alexis was SO proud to help me color him a picture. I'm proud of my Chinese characters. I HOPE they are accurate....ha ha!
