Change of plans!!!
In adoption, there is one thing that is constant and that is change. In fact, it is the synonym for adoption. My new name is Flexibility. We just got word a few minutes ago that we have to arrive in country a day earlier than expected. Now, this may not seem like a big deal for some but if you have arranged for airport drivers, sitters, & airlines, it does through a big kink in it. In addition, airline tickets will most likely go up. We can't book until Monday. That would only be a week before we leave. I'm working currently on rearranging everything. Just know if you do an adoption, always expect the unexpected. We'll be picking up "Little Bit" first and then the sibs the very next day. I'm trying to get a hold of costs and everything else. I think the reason we are going a day early is I had pointed out that Veteran's Day is a holiday for the embassy. Just a guess as to why we're traveling earlier. So, waiting to hear word about the airport driver to the airport. Got one from but since we're leaving earlier, have to see if this driver will be able to still take us. Call in to her. Heard back from travel agency and tickets only went up by a dollar. Huge relief there. Within the next few days, we should hear estimates on in country costs such as lodging. Praying they won't make us do 2 rooms since we have 3 kids. I'll know soon. Crazy how it is all seeming like it's going at lightening speed now. My days are way too fast. Before it felt like a turtle's pace. Now, it is lightening fast. That's a good thing though because soon, we get to see our children again. Can't wait to see the look on their faces. So, all the scurrying around is well worth it. More to come but that list is nowhere near done. Got to go.
