Summer 2000

We are finally getting closer to travel. We hope to get our travel papers very soon!!!!

July 1, 2000 - Well I guess I can't drag Spring out any longer and need to admit that summer is here. But I do know that unless anything drastic happens we will travel to bring Vickie home this month!!!!

July 4, 2000 - We had a wonderful day with my brother and his family. Then we headed into town to see the fire works! I wonder what Vickie will think of them.

July 5, 2000 - I talked to CCAI and the Travel Notices haven't came yet they will be checking to see where they are!

July 12, 2000 - We found out the delay in our travel is because our acceptance letters were lost on someone's desk for two weeks. I don't know if they will give Vickie to someone else or not!!!! I am so scared.

July 13, 2000 - We received an update from Thomas at CCAI for Vickie she is still ours!!! I am so happy!! She is just going into 6-9 month clothes they sent us her schedule and her likes and dislikes! They also said that she has a strong will and doesn't like strangers. I think we will have a fun time the first few days in China.

July 19, 2000 - CCAI received some travel notices today not ours but for the ones ahead of us. Soon I hope we will receive ours.

July 21, 2000 - On the CCAI web page they say that our travel notices will be mailed on Monday!!

July 24, 2000 - Today is our dear little Vickie Jo's 10 month birthday I was so sure that we would have her in my arms by today that it is a little hard. But after talking to Mom on Friday and then the youth minister at Church yesterday I am better able to let go and let God. I am trying so hard not to snatch it away again. I know to do so is to invite back the depression I have been suffering. I am trying so hard to faithful.

July 25, 2000 - CCAI notifies us that our travel notices were mailed last Friday the 21st. Wahoo!!!! We are finally closer. CCAI says that we may have a shorter time from receipt of travel notices to travel but I don't care!!

August 4, 2000 - Our Travel Notices are here!!!!! We should hear something soon about our exact travel dates!!!!

August 9, 2000 - Wahoo !!! We leave next week!!!!! Our travel dates are from the 16th through the 1st of Sept. We are coming Vickie Jo!!!!!!!!
