more progress

Our consulate appointment was confirmed last night!!
So now we are just waiting to find out (later today)
exactly how much time we will need to spend in Luoyang, then
we can book our flights.

Now I need to start cranking out the lists of "to do's"
and work on crossing things off!

And to answer some of you who asked...
YES, I will be bringing my laptop and will blog
DAILY...or more!

But since blogger has been blocked in the past in Ch*na,
I will either email my posts to my blog
and hope for the best (I'm a wee bit picky on how things
look so not being able to see the posts for myself will
bring a twinge of discomfort). And/OR I will post
to my JTM journal.

Well, that's all I have for right now.
Sorry there's no exciting pics or anything.

Oh, and thank you SO MUCH for all your extremely
kind words....I gotta tell you,
I was glued to my computer last night and kept
"refreshing" as I would see new comments pouring in each time!

You guys rock!

Thank you also for being a faithful follower of my blog. It means a lot to me.

Lisa said...

So glad you will be posting while you are gone. I would hat eot not be able to read about you for a couple weeks. LOL

I bet Lucy and the boys are very excited too.

Toni said...

Congratulations on your TA! I also wanted to let you know that we had no problem with blogger when in China this summer. We downloaded hotspot so that we could get to it (we did get a couple interesting popups....).

Holly said...

I can't wait to follow your story when you get there!

Mom Of Many said...

Yippee Jesus!! So very happy for all of you! And what a perfect time of the year to be in Ch*na!!

I remember so well the huge list on the fridge in our little log home as we prepared to go to Ch*na for our miracle was so exciting!

Praying for all the pieces to come together...

Sharla said...

Wow...that was super fast... It took us almost a week to get a confirmed CA!! Soon and very soon you will have your sweet girl with you!!

JR said...

This is so very exciting! Thanks for letting me "tag along" on your trip with daily blog updates. I can't wait to see your forever family expand with sweet Shu Li.

Love & hugs to you from Durango!

Stacy said...

I am so happy for your family! You have been waiting patiently (LOL) for your TA to bring Shu Li home. I remember that feeling very well. My prayers are with you as I know you have tons of thing to get done in the next 3 weeks.

Hezra said...

oh YAY! I was out for a two day span and OH MY GOSH!!! YAY!!!! I am so thrilled for you! I have tears in my eyes and goosebumps! love you!

christy rose said...

I am so glad that you are taking your computer to blog the whole experience. I am so excited to be able to watch God do this in your life.

Chad and Kristy said...

Yea Lori! Such an exciting time! Praying for your family. Praying that the Lord will begin to prepare Shu Li's heart for her new family.

Also, I didn't have any problems getting on blogger the entire time I was in China so maybe you will not either.

Elissa said...

Wow-- that was so fast, how cool! We had to wait 5 days for our CA and I thought I was going to lose my mind.

I want to come help you pack! Oh wait, we don't live in the same place, and then there's the little matter of us not really actually knowing each other ;) But just know I will be helping in spirit!

Karen said...

Praise God!!! How wonderful to know when you are getting your sweet sweet girl!! Praying you get great prices on your tickets. I can't wait to see you with your new daughter!!

Tina said...

Congrats on TA!! Can you tell me how long it was from your LOA to TA?

tinacd said...

Congratulations! Can't wait to follow along on your adventures. (like flooding bathroom floors during showers and blowing fuses with electrical appliances!)

Praying you'll have a safe trip and that the Lord will be preparing your daughter's heart.


Susan said...

YAY YAY YAY!!! I'm so excited for you!!! I absolutely can't wait to follow every step!!

May God bless every moment of your journey~!
