I800A Approved!

Fantastic news! I got an email from our case manager at WACAP saying that she received our I800A approval! She sent it today to San Fransisco for authentication. She said that would take up to 2 weeks then our dossier will be sent to China (DTC)!! I can't believe our dossier will be in China in October!!! Holy Moly I am so excited!!!

Until next time :-)

Gavin's Room!

I just finished painting a mural on Gavin's wall. The lion and monkey characters match his bedspread from Ikea. (I still have to add the veins in the leaves, but that can wait). Gavin said he loved it! He's been asking me to add eyes to that poor lion for days now! :-)

On the Adoption front: I've been informed that our dossier is all ready to go to China as soon as we get our I-800A approval (and that get's authenticated). WOOHOO!!

Until next time :-)

Puyallup Fair!

A couple of days ago we went to the Puyallup Fair. It was Gavin's first time to the fair. We had wonderful weather and we all had a blast. We took my Mom and Dad and my neice Shayla with us. Gavin wouldn't go on any rides unless we went with him, but he sure loved going on the rides. He loved cotton candy. And he was so happy to make a "doo dah bird".
I also included a picture of his first day of preschool. I couldn't get him to crack a smile, but he did have a great first day. He loves preschool!

And on the adoption front: We went to the USCIS office this morning and had our fingerprints done. That is the last thing that we have to do (on our end) before we get our referral!!! Hopefully in a few weeks our dossier will be sent to China!!!

Until next time :-)
