We are so thrilled to announce another wonderful Blessing we have received this week.
China has accepted our initial request to adopt 2 girls from the Guizhou Province.
Lillianna Grace, who will be 6 in June, has been living in a foster home since she was just days old.
We found her through another wonderful friend on our advocacy email group, and we feel she is another perfect fit for our family.
She and Rosalyn do not know each other yet, but we are sure having 2 older sisters along for the trip home will hopefully make her transition to our family a bit smoother.
She looks like she has tons of personality, and perhaps a shade of naughtiness in her.
We LOVE her pigtails!!
Tyler is beyond excited that he will have a little sister very close to his age.
Kendell is thrilled to have be adding a little sister to our family.
Nick is just happy our family is growing, age, gender, none of that matters too much to him.
We are flying through our paperwork and are very happy to have about everything done that can be done before our homestudy is completed.
There is way more paperwork than we are used to with Taiwan, and lot of hoops to jump through, but they all lead us down the road to our children, and we are pretty excited that this could all happen yet this year.
Actually, because of new regulations China has coming down the pike, it pretty much has to be done this year, and that has given us all a sense of urgency to keep on processing paperwork, filing for certificates and writing out checks.
Our social worker is on-board with an expedited process, and we hope to have the homestudy done by the middle of May-a new record for us, if we make it!!
We met with our homestudy sw on April 15, and can't believe that was only 1 week ago. It seems like so much is happening so quickly-BUT I know things can slow down when we file our immingration approval ap with the USCIS once the homestudy is done.
We have had notoriously horrid experiences the last 2 adoptions, and we are praying our success improves dramatically this time.
We will keep you all posted, as things come up, but keep us in prayer, as the timeliness of this is extremely crucial-the faster, the better!!
Chris and family
