Homestudy complete!!!

We have been on vacation for the past two weeks but while we were on vacation our social worker emailed us the homestudy to check to make sure everything we accurate. It was so they finished it up and it was waiting with the rest of our mail when we got home!!! Yay!! So, Mark and I will be finishing up our I800A application, which is for the document that we need to bring Adam to America. It generally takes 3 months for this application to be reviewed and to get the document to us. While that is happening we will be working on more paperwork for the dossier which will be sent to China for their review.

Thank you all for your continued prayers.

Something to "watch out" for...

On Saturday we had our yard sale to raise money for the adoption. After the yard sale we took the kids out for dinner. I asked Abby if I could write something on her coloring page and she said, "I bet it's about Adam!" So, I started to wonder if we focus too much on Adam and the kids are feeling left out. (I actually wrote "I (heart) Abby")
I asked Abby if she feels like we talk about Adam too much and she said yes. This could be because we talked about Adam and the adoption to pretty much everyone who came to the yard sale. But it is a bit of a wake up call to make sure that the adoption doesn't take over our life. There is so much to do to adopt internationally that it does feel like it takes over sometimes so I just need to be aware of that and make sure that we also focus on Abby, Emily and Brian.

Anyway, thanks for "listening"!!
