RQ List

In the world of Chinese adoption, the Rumor Queen website, AKA ChinaAdoptTalk, is a wonderful resource for information, questions, stories, and support.  There is also a thoughtfully and carefully organized spreadsheet called "Steps to TA (Travel Approval)", which we have ever-so-slowly been working our way up over the last 9 months.  Today the list for this week came out, and we are at the very top, and instead of listing the next steps, it says "Safe Travels!". 

That's us, MSJ2007.  How awesome is that?  It's going to be strange not to analyze the list every week--seeing which families have passed us by, how fast everyone is getting individual documents, and where we are in line.  But I'm ok with that. Very, very ok with that.

Today is my last day of work before (dun dun dun!) maternity leave!  I will be working from home part-time after L comes home, which was more than supported by my employers. 

Two days and a wakeup!


  1. We are three behind you! We get to GZ 2 days after you guys. I'll PM you. I screamed when I saw Safe Travels next to our name.

  2. Safe Travels!!!!!! I am so happy for you and can only imagine how excited you must be! Glad everything worked out with working at home part time.

    I cannot wait to hear about your adventures in China!

  3. Two of the most exciting words in the English language, huh? Safe Travels! YAY!!

  4. Omg can't actually believe this is really happening!!!!!!!!
