Wouldn't you know it. I forgot my cell phone when I went to watch Allie's preschool Christmas program. So came home to a message on my answering machine from our social worker. Then another one from John saying she had called him. Then it was busy busy busy time calling the travel coordinator at HOLT in Oregon, while making lunch for the hungry and over excited children. Then calling the travel agent while eating and feeding excited children. Then relaying all that info to John at work, and of course trying to announce this to the whole world of people who have been constantly waiting to hear.
We are planning on leaving on December 27th and leave for home on January 1st. We didn't have much choice as far as tickets go. But we think this will work out ok. Start the New Year off as a family of five!
