What a weekend

Monday, May 3, 2010

It started off just great....on Friday, we received our I-800A Supplement 3 notice in the mail, only 8 days after submission. Hopefully, we will get our Fingerprint appointment notice by this time next week. We are most definitely go to attempt to "walk in" and get printed early. Just waiting for the word. We also received our I-800 Provisional Approval notice on Saturday. While we're on a roll...we also got word today from our immigration officer that our I-800 provisional approval was overnighted to the NVC (National Visa Center) last Thursday and successfully delivered on Friday, the 30th. Hip hip hooray. All these little baby steps make it feel like we will soon be on our way to Ch*in@.

On Saturday, our small town held its annual Founder's Day festivities. It was the first time in 6 years that we were actually in town without plans, so we could attend. We "adopted" a turtle for the Turtle Splash. For this event, you could purchase a plastic turtle which was dropped in the river and "raced" to the finish line. All money raised went to benefit a local foundation for children with special needs. They had some great prizes for the top finisher, but our turtle wasn't fast enough. ;) We ran into a neighbor on our way over there, so we enjoyed hanging out with her while her son and Caleb ice cream and played with their new foam bow and arrows. It sure was hot, but a fun time was had by all.

I've been having fun sewing for Madeline. And since I will see my niece Leah this weekend, I just might snap a few photos of her sporting Madeline's new girlie clothes. That reminds me that I still have to share the other photos I took of Leah modeling Madeline's clothes. So I will likely do all that at the same time.

That's about it....just keeping busy getting ready to bring our precious daughter home. I hope to have more good news to share very soon.

About This Blog

This blog is the place where shared our lives while waiting to bring our daughters Madeline and Havi home from China. (Our son Caleb was already home before this blog began.) It is now the place where we continue to share our life experiences, both big and little, as we try to glorify God and raise our 3 dumplings from China.

Feel free to join us as we journey through life, while I try to capture our days...
