Nope, no TA.
We weren't in the batch that came in on Monday.
Looking at the timelines,
can you believe that families have been waiting
since mid-June for TA?
That means, they waited nearly 10 weeks.
For TA???
Because we're an I-600 family
and not an I-800 family,
I'm still hopeful that we will follow
the 3-4 week timeline
(we're currently in our 3rd week),
but my agency told me yesterday
that we could still be a few more weeks away
and not to expect travel in September
and even October travel might be iffy.
OMG...what a crushing blow that was yesterday.
That's all I can say.
I'm still praying for TA
to come next week and
squeaking in travel late September
and a CA after the early October holiday
so we can be home before Trade Fair?
Don't know if that's possible?
Prayers please.

Each step of the way brings us closer. With each step completed we get a moment, maybe a day, maybe 5-minutes (that's more like it) before we start counting down the time to complete the next step-- until they are home.

Big Hug!

well I know it is disappointing but God has his timing about things..it is hard to wait....
the closer you are in to fall the better the weather will be, Guilin and Nanning are beautiful in Oct and Nov, the weather then is comfortable and spring like for us, winter for them... I will keep you in my prayers. I was hoping you had TA today. I keep thinking about her and wondering when or who our last little girl will be... my husband told me last week he was ready and had figured out how we can come up with the money

Praying for you and Ava...

Darn this swine flu!! I feel certain that the fears surrounding a rise in cases in the fall has something to do with your wait.

Keep faith.

Lucky you that you are an I600 family!! We are I800- ugh. Now we get to look forward to a wait of 10 weeks for TA Hmmmmmm- We probably won't travel until May- wow...

It is such a bummer to be all excited for TA and then it doesn't happen.

Hoping and praying that it comes soon!!

I know it is sooo hard this last bit of the road but just try to keep thinking of how far you have come and how little you have to go before holding her. I cannot wait to see pics of that day!
