The Waiting Game

So what do you do when you are in the middle of the adoption process and waiting for clearance to travel?  Well if you are us, you go get travel luggage that will be appropriate not only for international plane travel, but also for a 12 hour, in-country train ride and whatever other local travel we have to do.  At the advice of many parents who have gone before us we purchased some duffle bag luggage that looks like this.

Because vehicles are on the small side over there, flexible luggage is really helpful.  The neat thing is they have handles, wheels and backpack straps for carrying.  We've already started loading them up with things for our little darling and travel in general.  These babies will be filled to the brim before you know it, so when that long awaited call comes, we'll be ready to go!  With the backpack straps, we'll be like a couple back packers across Europe.  We got some of the other items on the recommended travel list too.  It was a big shopping day and we feel a little bit closer to being ready to go.
