Nothing like starting a sunny morning with an email that says "TA has been issued"!!!!!!! How am I supposed to focus?! Knowing this dream is now becoming a reality is AMAZING! I cannot believe we are just that much closer to her.

Our agency should physically have the TA within a few days and then we can schedule our embassy appointment!

Stay tuned!!

If we hadn't of moved, we wouldn't need an updated homestudy or fire inspection. We wouldn't have waited on other people taking forever with our paperwork.

And we would be leaving on an airplane today to meet our daughter.

But I also know everything happens for a reason. And that reason is Ava will come home to her forever home.

But it still hurts a little...and until then I spend my days staring at this:

Mommy and Daddy are coming...that I can promise you!!
