I'm Baaaaack!!!!!!
Oh my, has it really been 2 years since my last blog post. Where has the time gone? To much has happened to try and blog about all of it.Quickly though, our family now has a teenager(Trent). I am in denial that I am old enough to have a Jr. Higher! the others all growing up to fast as well. Elsie has been home with us for just over 2 years and has changed so much. She has been such a wonderful addition to our family. I will try to post more often with updates on her and the rest of our growing family.
As you just read I mentioned "growing" family. As many of you already know we are in the middle of our second adoption. Our journey began in December 2010 when Chris and I discussed adopting again. We were both feeling that tug on our hearts. So as a leap of faith we took our first steps in the process in January of this year. After 6 months of compiling all of the documents needed they were sent to China in July. Over the next few months we were waiting for a match of a little girl aged 0-36 mo. with a special need that we were open to. On November 1st we received a call from our social worker saying she had a little girl for us. After reading her file and seeing her beautiful face we new she was our daughter. We sent off out Letter of Intent (letter asking permission to adopt) on November 2ND. 5 Days later we had Pre Approval to adopt her. Now we wait for our LOA =Letter of Acceptance, the official approval to be able to adopt. Our hope is to travel next April to bring our daughter home.
Here in our sweet "Sophie" She is almost 1 year old!
