3 months today!!

Our last trip to Six Flags

Well, it's now been three months since our file was received at ICAB, 3 loooong months. I am hoping that we will hear something in the next few weeks. Someone in the Philippines adoption yahoo group mentioned that they knew someone whose file reached ICAB on February 12/08 and they were approved on May 9. Our file would have reached ICAB two weeks after theirs, so we should soon hear something I guess.

Next week I head to Labrador for work. Labrador is part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador but it is located on the mainland of Canada unlike Newfoundland which is an island. That trip should be busy as we have many children to see, but also fun. The whole Rehab team will be there (OT, Social Work, Recreational Therapist, Speech Language Therapist, Psychologist, Orthotist, Nurses and a Doctor) so there will be lots of company in the evenings. I love staying at a hotel and not having to cook or clean!! We are down there from Monday to Friday. It's still work but at the same time it's a break from work. Hopefully, I'll hear something about ICAB approval by the time I get back.

We also have another trip booked for this November. Brian and I, along with all my running friends and their husbands, are going to Los Angeles for 5 nights and then we're going on a 7 day cruise to Mexico. Brian and I can't wait to go back to Six Flags as we love roller coasters. The last time we were there, we spent the whole day on coasters and didn't even take time out for lunch. We also plan on visiting Universal Studios, Santa Monica Beach and hope to do a drive up the Pacific Coast Highway. I'm hoping that we will be able to catch a hockey game at the Staples Center as well. If anyone else has any good ideas of what to do in and around LA, I'd love to hear them. I'm looking forward to some good weather as I don't think that we will get any here this summer. The trees are all still bare, I'm not sure if they will even get leaves this year!

I am hoping too that you hear something soon after you get back from your trip! I hated the wait for the approval, it was the worst. I am feeling for you!! Yay that you get to stay in a hotel, I also love hotels and not cooking :)

Sounds like you have fun stuff planned for fall, how exciting!
