Another meeting

Just had another meeting via phone with our agency. We went over all of the paperwork that will have to be done. Pretty much a refresher course for me since I was doing the same thing this time last year.

Rylie Shay.....we're hurrying, honey!

First meeting with June!

We had our first meeting with our social worker today! We are on our way to bringing our sweet girl home!!!
June looked at her picture and exclaimed, "She is exquisite!". I have to agree!
Three more visits and our homestudy will be finished! June will have it to us in no time, I'm sure!

So far, so good!

The phone orientation went very well. Most of it was info we already knew so it was more of a refresher call than an orientation.
Our LOI has been approved and we will be sending it off to the agency tomorrow. Now the wait for the official PA begins.
We're waiting to hear from our social worker about updating our homestudy when she comes to do Brinley's 6 month post placement report.

The agency is going to try to get some new photos of XinRu for us and my friend Karen who is going to Guilin for her daughter Ryleigh very soon has graciously offered to take a little package to our sweetie for us. I've got it all ready to be sent out to her tomorrow. THANK YOU, KAREN!!!

Phone Orientation

Tomorrow we have our orientation with our social worker through Cradle of Hope. I've already written our LOI and it's ready to go if it meets with their approval. :)

I'm ready to fly to China to bring our sweetheart home!! She needs to be here playing with her sister Brinley and her brothers Brice and Keith!

Hang on sweet, mei mei! We'll be there as soon as we can!!!
