I was packing for our trip today to the coast, when I randomly decided to check email.... it was noon, I had LONG given up on the idea that I would find out anything today... then among some junk email was an email from our agency with the subject line.... "COURT PROCEDURE IS FINISHED".... I found this email on my phone, and sometimes it takes a while for my phone to actually download the message, so I quickly ran to our computer all the while jumping, and signed on our email and the lady from our agency wrote that the orphanage received the final piece of paper, which, I believe is the final decree, and that they are trying to figure out travel date for us. They are now working on getting Anna's medical record and passport to AIT (American Institute in Taiwan... basically, the consulate). I wrote right away to ask when they thought we would know more details of travel date and she wrote back to tell me that maybe sometimes next week!!

So, we could be traveling to Taiwan very soon!!! We are now at the beach in Netarts, Oregon... I wanted so badly just to stay home and work on "stuff" around the house to get ready for Anna!! She is going to be ours very soon!!!
