We are now full on into paperchasing for our third child, a sister. Due to some changes in the China adoption process we need to have a LID in order to submit a Letter of Intent. We have been looking for the file of a special little girl, we have yet to find it however, in order to submit a request to adopt her we have to have our paperwork in China. All of the changes took place at the beginning of the month so we have been very busy getting the paperwork rounded up, doing our homestudy, and Hague training. We are waiting for our birth certificates to arrive and our homestudy to be approved and then we will have completed the paper chase in record time for us. This will be our third adoption so we should have it down by now. Please pray for us that our paperwork process will still continue to be quick and uneventful.
We had a wonderful visit from Aunt CC and cousin G this month. It was so fun to have them here and the kids love them so much. Aunt CC watched the kids while daddy and I took a trip to the country to pick up Tri. We didn't let the little ones know what we were doing and they were super surprised when we walked in the door with him. It was hard to have CC and G go home but we know we will see them again in the fall when we go to watch T play football as a senior.
We had our Pure and Brightness celebration yesterday with IFCA. M and E enjoyed the egg hunt and spending some time with their "China Friends" as they say. We also took a drive up to N & P's mountain condo to deliver furniture, we are working on reorganizing our house to get ready for another child and the condo needed more furniture. I was having a really hard time parting with the sofa and now if we when we get a larger home it isn't gone forever. We still have a lot of reorganizing and possession thining to get done. I see a large fundraising yard sale in our near future as well as many other fundraising things coming up in the future. Please keep us in your prayers that we will be matched with the perfect little girl for our family and the fundraising will be successful.
