Today Keith and I are celebrating our 9th year wedding anniversary! I could remember that day, 9 years ago, so clearly as it is truly one of the best days of my life!
I do have some good news to report...
*as of yesterday afternoon, my aunt (who was badly injured in an auto accident in Savannah, GA over a week ago) return back to Pennsylvania yesterday and was admitted into a Care First Center. She is expected to be there for the extension of her rehab. Her health has improved better than everyone could have expected. She still has a long road of recovery ahead of her, but at least she is "home" (or as close as we can get her to be...).
*PAs and LOAs rolled in this now where are the TAs?'s to hearing something maybe today (what a nice anniversary gift that would be! (I'll keep you all posted if we hear anything)!
*Keith and I are marking this year's anniversary with a lunch date at my favorite restaurant, Twigs located in the beautiful Endless Mountains of northeastern PA.
*I am officially about 85% packed for China! I only have our clothes to pack and a few odds and ends...
*We received an update from our agency today on our Annabelle and let me tell you, she is a "ball of fire" (from what they have said) and also we received some video footage from when another family was visiting Hope a few weeks ago (I am going to be posting both updateds to our baby jelly beans account some time in the next few days...)
Here's to our TA coming...soon!?!?!?!?

Sara sent me your way as she pointed out that we are both waiting for TA ANY DAY NOW and we might be in China at the same time!

Happy Anniversary!! Congrats on the gift of an update.. ball of fire eh? Sounds like a girl who knows how to let you know what she needs... I see that as a good thing! Get in some extra workouts before you travel in prep and you should be good to go!

And those pics of her in the previous post.. ADORABLE!!!. I am so happy for you that you are so close to having her in your arms!

Hoping you hear some TA news soon!
