OK, here's what our trip will look like. It is longer than we planned because we had to book without a confirmed appointment with the embassy, so we had to leave a bit of wiggle room. The good thing is that if Mason is doing well, we'll have time to go to Agra.

We will pray for your health for sure (just read your last post). If you hire a car and driver vs. taking the train you might have enough energy . . . the cost was pretty reasonable.

I cannot wait to see that smiling boy with his mom and dad!

YEA!! I will be praying for you and following your journey. Our agency is saying you have to have an embassy appt. b/f you leave. So, am curious if that is not true? Would love to know....

Looks like you have everything figured out. Can't wait to follow along on your journey. It will be fun to see pictures of you and your husband with Mason all smiles!
Safe travels to you both.

I'm so happy to hear that you and Maddie are taking trips together.
When's your next trip?

I will be coming home (NYC) next week on the 17th.
Hope we could meet up when you get back from your trip. *^^*

SO excited for you!!! I'll be praying for a great trip and for your little people who are at home waiting for you too. I can't wait to see pictures of Mason in your arms. He is such a doll-baby (I MIGHT have said that once before lol - you know how much I love that kid!). :) ~Rachel

I am shocked at how organized and calm you appear to be after all this waiting! Really...planning to leave just a couple of days after receiving the go ahead is impressive!

Looking forward to following yet another wonderful adoption union in your family!!
