TA and 2 week Countdown


WE HAVE TA!  We received TA last week and have been busy planning our trip since then. Our flights are booked, itinerary finalized and now its time to start thinking of what we need to pack and bring!! I honestly cant believe we are at this stage!

We had another AMAZING and CRAZY March! Work trips to Arizona for both Domhnall and me.  An amazing St. Paddy’s Day party and a trip to Cancun! Basically March flew by and now I am in crunch time getting everything ready for Ashling and the trip to China.

We are pretty prepared and ready for the delays and behavioral issues that are to be expected. However, I feel pretty unprepared for the language issues we will face. I have downloaded a translating app on my phone and ordered a ton of flashcards. Otherwise I guess we will just play it by-ear.

2 week countdown is on!!!!!!!!!!! Cant wait to meet Ashling on April 17th!!!!





We got our visas to go to China today! I am so excited they arrived because the paperwork was a little overwhelming (especially for Connor who previously had a Chinese visa).  This is another huge step forward. I still remember getting our Visas in the mail for Connor and now Connor has a visa in his passport to go to China! So amazing!

We are just waiting on Article 5 and TA and then we can book everything. Time to start buying clothing, car seats, etc!

We are getting so close to meeting Ashling and bringing her home!! Cannot wait to meet my baby girl 🙂
