Approved!!


We got our I171-H today! This means we are officialy approved by the united States to adopt a child! (it's a good thing since we just finished decorating his room!) At lunch Eric and I were talking about how I have been a little depressed at how long this seems to be taking but that our I171-H could come today...and that might make it all a little better....well it is confirmed, when we got home from lunch and saw that very precious form in the mailbox- it defanitly made me feel a heck of alot better! Can you tell in the picture that I am teary?? Cause I was!! Happy happy joy joy....
Now I need to find a notary friend to notarize this today or tomorrow so I can send it to Kate. Don't be crazy I am not waiting until Monday to send it! Perish the thought! This sucker is going out TODAY! :)

Oh, I forgot, we got ours on a Saturday too and this means you could be waiting by Wed or Thurs at the latest!!! And, one last thing, you don't send the original but a copy of the I171H. You probably already knew that but either way Kate will take care of it because we sent the original and she just made a copy of it and sent the other back to us!!! YAY!! I am sooooo excited for you!!!
