See You Soon!

I am happy to say that we now have official travel dates to pick up our HotDog!! At the beginning of October I will travel to Bishkek and she'll be in my arms forever. While these dates are a bit later that we had anticipated, we are thrilled to finally have an end-date in sight. It gives us plenty of time to plan for childcare, prepare the nursery, and get Chipmunk and Monkey ready for their baby sister. Up until now I think it has been more of an abstract concept for them. Now we can really start to help them understand what it will be like to have a baby around the house.
In less than two months, I will be with HotDog again!!

Yippee! If I didn't already have my big trip planned for November, I would offer to travel with you and help pick up J. I'm so happy for you, Stu, and the boys.

Love,
Cory

Congrats. I agree that the unknown is the hardest. It may take longer to get back to HotDog, but knowing when makes the wait more bearable.

Glad to know that it won't be long now!!
