Wednesday, October 27, 2010


Wow...what a day yesterday was! We FINALLY received our paperwork back from the DC Chinese Consulate with the final authentication stamps before everything can head to China in the form a of our dossier! Of course there was a hiccup along the way...but Todd stepped up and really showed me what a wonderful Father he will be to our baby girl. I think I fell in love all over again....

So, last night, we packaged everything up and make 2 photocopies of all that paperwork and got it in the last Fed Ex pick up to head to TX to our agency for review and submission to CHINA! I can't believe this day finally arrived. We started the paperchase pn December 17, 2008. There were some reasons it took us so long...that I will discuss one day, but mostly it was our agency we used for the home study. (Slow as a snail) But now, we are hopeful for Friday. Dossiers leave our agency and go to China every Friday. I really hope there aren't any errors and we make it this week. That would be the best gift to us ever right now.

Keep up....LID!! YAY!!

We are headed to Charleston this weekend for our God-daughter's baptism and to celebrate our Best Friends Birthday....what a fun weekend to one of our favorite places. : )

Adoption Update and more

Today we sent all our paperwork off to the necessary Chinese Consulates. What a relief! They say the turn around time is 4 days, and don't you know I included an overnight Fed-Ex envelope for each consulate to mail back to us! Ha! Once these papers return back to us, we can submit everything to our agency in TX to be reviewed, translated and then it will be submitted to China. We are SOOOO close to receiving a Log In date, I just can't stand it!! This weekend we are going to sit down and try to decide on some lifestyle shots to send with all our paperwork.

Work has been AWFUL recently. We are so busy and there just doesn't seem to be any relief coming soon. Thankfully my boss did let us all leave at 4pm, and they are going to look for a temp to help me out in the lab for 8-12 weeks...what a great plan!

Tomorrow, I am going to enjoy an hour massage that my wonderful hubby got me for our Anniversary last weekend. I am going to LOVE every minute of it.

Have a great weekend!! The weather here is beautiful...I can't wait to get some pumpkins and mums to decorate outside. : )
