Tomorrow morning!!!!!

We are boarding the plane at 7:00am tomorrow morning!!!! Things are still crazy around here and there is still so much to do. I finished work yesterday afternoon but had to go back in this morning as there was still more to clue up. I met with our travel agent and she went through our itinerary. So exciting!!!! We spend the first night in Manila, then 4 nights in Iloilo where we will pick up Rafael, then 4 nights in Boracay, and we end with 3 more nights in Manila. We will be staying at the Intercontinental which came highly recommended by many of you!! We meet with ICAB on Monday, Feb. 28. We will be meeting Rafael on Saturday but probably won't bring him back to the hotel with us until the following day. Hopefully he transitions fairly well but I'm sure it will still be very difficult on him. Wish us good luck!!!! Good luck to all of you who are still waiting to be matched or to travel. I hope that you all get good news very soon!! Imagine, the next time I post we will probably be in Manila!!!! Crazy!!!

Safe and happy travels to your son! Soak up every minute that you have waited for. (And Boracay, too? Oooh! Soooo jealous!) Take lots and lots of pictures. Can't wait to hear all about it. I will be praying for the three of you and a peaceful attachment process for your lovely boy! Blessings for you all!

Enjoy the flight over there...I'm not sure how far it is for you guys, but it seemed as it would almost never end, VERY LONG. But the trip back will be better with your little one in tow. :) You will have a great experience with the Intercontinental. Best wishes and enjoy as much of the Philippines while you are there. I can't wait to see some pics!
