I e-mailed our agency about this latest bit of information and they have not heard anything about holding back referrals and TA's. In fact, they reported that just this morning they received and e-mail from our facilitator with the CCAA telling them that our TA should be here in a couple of days. Let's hope that this is the truth!
I am extremely disappointed to learn that the CCAA is holding off sending TA's and referrals for 20 to 30 days because of the swine flu. What about the families who have their travel dates already? God is definitely not on our side right now. What next???
Today at work, our wonderful staff put on a surprise shower along with providing food for a homemade Chinese Food potluck. The food was fantastic and the gifts were beautiful! Thank you again to everyone for the special day!!!
We are still waiting for Travel Approval and dates. I'm not sure why it's taking so long. We were told 4-5 weeks after referral is when we could expect our invitation to travel. This is week five. Come on CCAA!!!
I was up late last night and checked my e-mails before going to bed. This wonderful surprise was waiting for me!!! Maya now weighs 8.8 kg, (that's just over 19 lbs.), has four teeth - two up, two bottom, and her foot size is apparently 13.5 cm - that 's size 6. The update was sent to us from Ann at www.redthreadchina.com. Ann has been absolutely wonderful and Maya is so beautiful! I can't wait to get some bows in that hair!
Another nice surprise that we received yesterday was Maya's finding ad that had been posted in the Jiang Xi newspaper last year. The ad was translated for us and we even received a copy of the actual newspaper that the ad was in. One more thing for the scrapbook! Now, if we could only receive Maya...
Here is our alternate blog that we used while we were in China. You can also find it at the bottom of my list of blogs on this page. Blogger didn't work in China - it's actually blocked, as is youtube. There are many photos as well as daily entries that you may enjoy taking a look at and reading.
There are also different types of blogs that I have created and am playing around with listed at the bottom of this page. Please check them out, too!
