TA .......Shiloh Here we come!!!

Our agency called this morning before lunch to tell us we got TA (Travel Approval.) We should leave on the 16th of JUNE!!!! I was adding up the days last week and if we leave on the 16th, we will have waited 783 days to get to that point and a few days longer to hold Shiloh in our arms. I think we sometimes wondered if we would ever get to this point in the process. I have watched other families get their children for way over two years now and would hear of someone getting TA, and wondered how that must feel....well now I know. It feels like it is actually happening. The reality of being handed a 2 and a half year old who probably has no clue who we are is pretty overwhelming, but so was the moment I first got to hold Dakota. I have no idea how this is all going to go, so it is nice to know that God is in charge!
