Last week we got an email from our adoption agency in Minnesota telling us that ICAB (the Philippines government officials) were COMING for a visit on October 17th…yes, TODAY.
To be completely honest with you, I was so excited because we have been waiting for them to visit our agency for months. They were supposed to come in August, but it got postponed. After I thought about it for about 2 seconds…my excitement turned to panic.
Because here’s the thing… We live in Illinois. And Minnesota and Illinois are not close together. Last week when she told me they would be in Minnesota on October 17th? It was less than 8 days away.
If you’ve never checked flight prices for a flight you need in 8 days, let me just tell you, you might feel like you need to sell your living room furniture to make it happen. It’s not cheap. $600/person not cheap.
Did I mention we have 5 people in our family? I literally spent two whole days in tears.
