A bump in the road

I know I don't usually post 2 times in one month, BUT this deserves it's own place... When I went to the mail, I THOUGHT I had gotten our renewed I-171,, HA HA HA HA!!! It was appointments to have our fingerprints redone.. The funny part is I sent the proof that we already had them redone, and they are good until... January 30, 08....... I am sorry are not still in 2007 AAARRRGG!!!!

March 2007

Well, CHI got referrals last Monday, the 5th,up to October 24.. I had guessed they would come in on the 9th,, and up to the 23rd!!!! I would say that is close... I am still thinking August before ours comes in... I am always really happy for a couple of days after referrals..THEN, reality sets in again... IIICCCKKK!!! I will say my next guess is April 6th up to November 3rd.... We will see. This last month has gone by pretty fast.. since last referral.. I can only hope it goes fast for the next few months

I did meet one family out here in Buckeye, that has adopted from China twice.. The Davis',,, and I actually ran into Joe in the grocery store today.. The only reason I knew who he was is Shannon had sent me a picture of their girls,, and I recognized them.... to funny!!!

Met up with Kathy Jo and Marc (adopting thru CHI)for dinner Saturday night ... It was a blast as per usual..

And my boys are ALL out for Spring Break,, oh yipppeee!! after about 3 days they should be on each others last nerve... Kyle has only 1 week off and Cody & Dylan have 2 weeks off...

I have started redecorating 2 of our bathrooms... Then I would REALLY like to redo our bedroom... Shall we say Danny is less than thrilled, considering I want to redo our flooring,, which consists of moving our oak framed, double bladder king sized waterbed...OVERJOYED!!!!

Welcome Everyone!!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to see where we are in our journey, of adoption, to bring Leah home from China. We enjoy everyone asking questions, I know I never get tired of talking about it.......
