We Got Teased Today!

Today, we got an email from our agency that said we may indeed get to travel 1 week earlier than anticipated, meaning we would leave a week from this Saturday!!!! There are so many families scheduled to travel the 17th that the country is willing to open up another visa appt date, which usually are only on the 1st and 3rd Thurs of every month. Yikes!!! You talk about excited! But, then the agency emailed back and said that we probably wouldnt travel early because in order to do that, they needed enough families willing to change their plans from the 17th of Sep up to the 10th of Sep and supposedly not enough families were "willling to travel early and change their plans"?!?!?!? What in the world?!?!!? Who in their right mind would say, "Oh, we have waited too long to bring our child home, but thats ok, we will just leave at the later date!!!!??!?!?" I dont get it. If we were told we could leave NOW, we would. I am still hoping we can leave at the earlier date. We are ready to go, but they do not want to open up a new visa appt date with just 1 or 2 families willing to change. Lord help me! This was just a tease!!! But, I've got to admit, I was a nervous wreck inside in a tizz of excitement about getting the packing done! But, it was a fun nervous. A good nervous. Anyway, maybe by some miracle, we can still travel early. Either way, we are pretty much set for the Sep 17 date and got all of our travel documents today!

It just never ends, huh?!?! I would go TODAY if I could, too, Fran!!! Very frustrating!!!!!! You would think, a smaller group would be SO much less work for the staff and HOH. Crazy.

Oh my word, Fran - I'm with you in WHY would anyone say no to an early travel date?! At least you have a firm travel date and all of your docs, so you KNOW that you will leave soon!

Praying for you, girl!

Ahhh! What a bummer. We had a similar situation happen to us and we went for the earlier date. It was crazy getting ready but it would have been anyway, right?? I am with you - just GO! Hoping someone changes their mind with you (:
