On Wednesday, FEBRUARY 27, 2013 @ 3:36 PM we received an email that we had been anticipating for MANY days. WE GOT TRAVEL APPROVAL! This allows us permission to come and get REX! Our agency requested our Consulate Approval based on the premise that we told them that we wanted to leave as soon as possible. We got an email the following morning that our Consulate Appointment is set for March 27, 2013 and therefore, we will be leaving March 13 to begin our journey to bringing Rex home. GOTCHA DAY is March 18!!! And yes, I just started crying as I typed those words out....aghh, GOTCHA day...what a beautiful sound, right!? I have already packed REX..In fact, Rex has been packed for a long time. HA! I am sure that I will add some things at the last minute, but he is pretty much done. This week I will finish cleaning the house and preparing for the girls to be without their mama and daddy for 17 days.
To my sweet baby boy, Rex
Your daddy and I have fallen in love with you from afar. We have stared at your picture a million hours. We have studied your features..we have memorized every update we have received.
