Well, 0ur I -800 was sent and we receieved notice it is there and being processed. Now we wait. God willing and the devil does not interfere, we expect the approval next week sometime. Meanwhile, we applied for passports for the kids and received them in record time. We had to send in, not only Lilly Rose's Certificate of Citizenship, but her original adoption certificate. That was a bit scary, as it is irreplaceable. We did receive it back in no time at all. PTL

Aiden 2 yrs. old
I am featuring my Grandson, Aiden. This little bundle of energy sets a new tone to the word "active". He is so much like my son, Steven. He is a good traveler, especially with a DVD player. We went up to Santa Rosa to visit my sister, Rosanne and her family. Except for the terrible traffic, it was a great drive.
By the way, we sent out I-800 paperwork off via over night and it took 4 days. I will be having a talk with the Fed Ex people. I think a refund is in order. We should have our receipt by this Monday and the approval a week later. ( July 2 )

My sister in law Pam Bean is having a raffle for this beautiful ladybug blanket to help raise funds for her adoption of of 6 year old Blossom. It was made by her sister-in-law Michelle specifically for this raffle. Donate for a chance to receive this beautiful blanket. Michelle spent over 50 hours making this blanket. Each ladybug was individually made and then crochet into the blanket. The blanket measures 39 inches x 39 inches. For a $5.00 donation you will have a chance to receive this beautiful blanket. This blanket can be given to a new mom as a shower gift or a new addition to the family through adoption. What a wonderful story behind why it was made. I know this is short notice but the drawing will be held next Sunday the 17th at 6:00 p.m. PDT. Asking for prayer that there would be many participants. Contact Pam Bean @ firstname.lastname@example.org Or go to www.alongtheblossomtrail.blogspot.com for a pay pal connection.

We Received our LOA (letter of acceptance) from China today, June 1 2012, just 36 days since LID. This my friends, is some kind of record. I had heard of someone who got it on 37 days, but I never thought it would happen to us. We have been so behind in our timeline since we received pre-approval. Always having complications with every step I became so overwhelmed at the reality, I think I shocked my friend, Nurse Diana. I was both crying and talking and alternately speechless. Well, lets say she has never seen me speechless....
