I have been slow on reporting, sorry.
The Ministry Official came back to work on Monday (May4). I really was expecting for the day to come and go with no news, but deep down hoped for a little bit of news, anything.
Word came Monday afternoon, that 'J' talked to the MO and she thought she might have news of a travel date by Friday, May 15. She made comment that the two other adoptions needed to be finished before we traveled. I totally understand that fact, but in another way, I know that one appointment is on the 13th and the other the 18th, so hopefully we could travel by the time the first adoption is almost complete. Maybe we'll pass Christina going out of the country as we are coming in. J still thinks we could travel at the end of May!!
In one way, the end of May seems so far away, yet if we get travel news next Friday, May 15 and travel by the end of the month, that really only leaves us 10-15 days to prepare and pack. Nothing like the notice we got for our Ukraine adoption (got travel news on August 27th and traveled October 26th!) In all honesty, we'll take the short notice if that means we get to travel before the summer break in M's home country!
