Anniversaries - Birthdays: It Must Be Maine!

We are driving to Maine after our day at work; planning to leave work before 4:00 p.m. in order to get a head start on our travel trip. This trip is to host a 50th wedding anniversary party for my parents, A & T. Their anniversary was on August 13th (being married in 1955). The family party is also for celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, M’s 40th birthday, G’s 50th birthday (November 5th), T’s 50th birthday (April 15, 2006) and their 23rd wedding anniversary. ATW also just had his 18th birthday, which we will celebrate on Sunday when we arrive in Gray, Maine.

Our adoption journey will slow down while on this vacation. We are waiting on Ford’s doctor’s letter explaining his blood pressure medicine and we are also expecting an express envelope for an authentication that was mailed a few weeks ago.

Once we return, we will have the home study interviews on September 24th and will continue getting documents notarized. Much to do. We hope to have everything done by early December.From reading the journey stories on the web (, if we have our dossier to China date (DTC) in January along with the logged in date (LID), then we will expect to get our daughter, the “referral”, in about 6 months then travel within 6 – 8 weeks after that date.
