Today we received approval for our adoption.  I feel like shouting it from the rooftop---if only I could haul my rear up there!!  We weren't expecting our approval until the end of October.  Again,  The Great I AM has sped things up.  I had been praying that we would be able to hold Maisy before she turned 1 year old.  Now we will be doing just that.  We are slated to travel around November 1.  I'm terrified and excited at the same time.  We are now awaiting Travel Approval.  Hold on MeiMei, here comes Mommy!!
I tried to take Maisy's stuff back to the Carter's outlet store and that didn't work too well.  I ended up in tears.  But, today I called the customer service line and Cheryl, the lady who answered my call, is going to help me tomorrow so that Maisy doesn't have to suck-in when I dress her.  I'm back to loving Carters.
I'm so stoked.  Everything is working out at work so that I can be gone (I'm telling you my job is a dang good gig.  The folks I work with are great.).  And our delightful and delovely Katie Pie is going to watch Bobby and Abby while we are in China.  Katie is the best!!!
I am just praising God for all of the blessings He has given us during this long adoption journey.  Thank you, Lord for my daughter and for loving me and my family so much. 
Joy Unspeakable to and Full of Glory,
