The Passport wait is over!!!

After 17 long grueling weeks they are finally here. Our passports arrived today and now we are officially allowed to leave the Country. All the painting in the house is also done. We think the colors match well with John's bedding. I posted a picture below. We are so excited. Now the next step is to go find the furniture. We'll keep updating as we get his room ready.

Glad it's Friday!!!

This has been a long week and I’m thankful it’s Friday. We have a lot to do this weekend. Tonight we are going to move furniture around so that we can start on the baby’s room. Tomorrow morning we are going to a Dossier Class at the agency. After our class we are going by our Church to help out with Vacation Bible School. On Sunday we have Church and then it all starts over again for another workweek. The weekend’s go by too fast.

We are hoping to have John’s room finished in a couple of weeks. We picked up some cute picture frames today to put in his room.

This week we did get 2 referrals and another waiting child was placed. There are a couple of families that will be traveling this next week. We are still waiting on our passports. We are going on 17 weeks now. I know what we don’t need them for a while but it would be nice to have in our hands. Hopefully they will come soon. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July and weekend. We had a busy-busy weekend. On Saturday we took Hannah to a Birthday Party at Build A Bear. It’s a pretty neat place to for a child to have a party. She had a really good time. Hannah chose to build Shrek. She named him Shrek Honey. She likes to call everyone Honey!

We did not receive any new referrals last week but there were 3 waiting children that will be placed in homes. I am so happy for the children and families. Hopefully the families will not have to wait too long for travel dates. Hopefully sometime this week we will get more referrals. I think I have a new addiction—I am addicted to checking everyone’s blog daily. I love when there is new information added and love to see updates when they are in Country. Thanks to everyone for updating.
