Today we received our approval from the USCIS! I have to mail some documents off and in about 10 days we will be completely ready to go to China. We are thinking we are at about one month until travel. Makenna here we come!!!!

So much to do....

Update on us.

We were fingerprinted and it went very smoothly! The officer assigned to our case at the USCIS is just waiting on them to wrap up our approval. The passports were sent off to get our visas and I am working on the" one spouse travel" documents. It is all really happening fast now. This weekend my family is hosting a shower for us and I am really excited. The more baby things we have in our house the closer we feel to having our baby! I can't believe in just a few weeks we could be heading to China. After over three long years it is hard to feel like it is real. We all talk about Makenna and what it will be like when she is home. Jackson can't wait to be a middle child, and Olivia can't wait to show her off to her friends. I have been really overwhelmed with everything that has been happening in our lives but I am hoping I will get everything under control when I start my adoption leave from work. Everyone who knows me in real life knows I am a total procrastinator, but I work well under pressure:) It will all come together when it needs to-I promise.

We now have our fingerprint appointment with USCIS!!! We are now in the final stretch of things we need to get before approval. Hopefully our I800a will be approved quickly and the
@$%#* Trade Fair in Guangzhou will not delay our travel too long. Things are moving along slowly but surely. Next step- to get our visas for travel and the power of attorney I need for only one spouse travelling.
