View Full Version : at the risk of jinxing myself...

Okay, the fluffy mamas here made me come out of the closet so I thought I owed it to the rest of you. I so hope we are not jinxing ourselves.

Last Friday we got the "go ahead" to book our travel to pick up Mari. We leave this weekend and we hope to be home with her by Wednesday. We are still waiting for her visa which could bump our dates slightly so cross your fingers that we get it in time!

I am going to be doing a pickup trip blog but I'm keeping it password-protected. PM or email me to get added to the list. ;)

Holli, I missed your post (kept thinking the adoption board had been deled and didn't realize that there were more boards beyond my screen). If it's not too late, add me - I'll e-mail you. I'm so very excited for you.
