I got the call I have been waiting for at 2:15 today. I got TA (travel approval) but it came with a downside. My province, Jiangxi is temporarily suspending adoptions because of the swine flu. That leaves my travel plans up in the air. I am supposed to be getting a daily update and my agency is supposed to be calling them every day. I'm hoping it will begin again next week. However, I just read on RQ that some agencies were getting appointments...maybe my agency isn't because there are so many of us (it's both sn (me) & nsn) going or the fact that my agency is in a state close to Mexico. Who knows? Speculation is not going to really help me. I just have to take a deep breath, relax and say the mantra that Shannon & I say to calm down, "Martina, Josephina Catalina Cucaracha" (it's a title of a Cuban folk tale with both love). I'm still happy...I got my TA. What's one more bump in this journey right? I have been waiting already almost 3 years...one more week...easy schmeezy...yeah right!
