We Received our Travel Approval!!!

Last week we went to visit Josh and Amanda, and see Max and his new sister, Harper. Claire and Max has such a great time together.


Sweet little Harper

We returned on Saturday and our church family threw us a big baby shower. We are so thankful for our church family who have prayed for us and supported us through Ella's adoption. We received everything we registered for and more.
A big thank you to our friends, Rick, Kim, Holly, and Diana who did such a great job putting the shower together. We love you guys!

Ella has everything she needs

Claire racked up with the "Big Sister gifts" too!!

Claire tuckered out in her new booster seat after a day of shopping for the trip.

On Monday, we spent the day putting away shower gifts and making our final purchases at Babies R Us. Finally, at about 10:30 pm, Ed sat down to check our e-mail and low and behold there was an e-mail from our agency saying we had travel approval. We were so excited!!
Today our consulate appointment was confirmed so we are ready to go!! We made our flight arrangements and it looks like we will be leaving on March 29th (Ed's birthday) . That's less than 2 weeks away--I can hardly stand it!! Now we have a lot to get packing!!

Hi Ed and Kristy..I think you might be traveling with a couple from the Toledo area. They are traveling the same time you are, to the same orphanage and with LaVida. Their names are Jeff and Tammy Conlan.
Have fun!
