Off to a good start…

We have turned in our Mailer 1 documents and are working on our Mailer 2 docs. The sooner we get this done, the sooner we get our baby!

Ok, I have no idea as to how to create a new post so I just have to add to this one even though it was actually posted a couple of weeks ago. Maybe Moose and squirrel are catching up…I’m just not sure about the rapidity of our progress!

We had our home study last Saturday (7/2) and it went great. We really like our worker, Earlene Logan with Oklahoma Home Study and recommend her highly. We should be able to preview the home study in a couple of weeks and then file our I600A with CIS and have our DTC (dossier to china) date about 3 to 4 weeks after that. It is all waiting after that. I pray that the time goes by quickly.

We have a lot of thank yous to send out. The first one goes to my sister, Laura. She has been a constant source of encouragement and information. No one can navigate the internet like my sister. She is a fabulous mom and wonderful aunt. I hope she and John are still living close by when we get our little Maisy!

I also want to thank my good friend, Meredith who has a knack for saying the thing I need to hear and giving some pretty darn wonderful advice!

Fairo, my friend, my pal, my brother in all the ways that count. Thank you.

Mark, I haven’t made anybody cry–but it’s only Wednesday! Thank you for your encouragement, support and unconditional friendship.

Angie, our family could not be who we are today without having had you in our lives. You give us hope and we love you.

Laura, Meredith, Fairo, Mark and Angie–If you had not taken the time to fill out our references we couldn’t have had our home study done as quickly as we did. We are so blessed to have you in our lives. Thank you for helping us bring Maisy just a little closer to home. —Amy
