Quick update

Just a little update on the adoption front...

Last Thursday we received our I-800 approval from USCI$!!!! It only to 2 weeks!! So now we're expecting our NVC letter any day,then it's time to wait for our Article 5, then our TRAVEL APPROVAL. Our adoption agency told us last week to prepare to travel in 8 weeks! All in God's time. =)

Things are soooo busy here at home and I have neglected my blog big time! The school year is coming to a close so this week we have to outside picnics so it should be a great time and next week we're having a adoption fundraiser garage sale so it's been nuts!

I have (almost) completed my shopping list for China. I am not bringing nearly as much as I did the first time around. I decided I'm only going to bring a few clothing items for Madelyn like PJ's and a couple of summer dresses, slippers, undies, etc... I just can't wait to take her shopping!!!

This week I'm ordering one last cake for the orphanage and I'm paying the extra $$ for digital pics so hopefully in the next week or two I'll be able to post our beautiful girl. I just got chills!!! This is the last time I'll receive pictures of her, soon it will be me taking the pictures (or daddy)!!
