LOA X2!!

I can't believe it! I just checked my phone and a message was left from our agency!!

We have our LOA's!! They both arrived today!! They came within 28 days!! WOW!! We have had the pleasure(not) of waiting 81 days in the past! My how quickly things can change.

We are thrilled beyond belief and in shock- happy shock that is!!


What a wonderful Christmas gift!


Thank you Jesus!!
Sweet Ava Marie and Samuel Jacob we are getting closer and closer to bringing you home!

Wonderful news!!! Congrats x 2!!!! I just left you a comment on what must have been an older post! I have a family interested in learning more about the first little guy on your blog. Do you know anymore about him than what is posted on the CHSFS website? If so, may I pass along your email to them? Thanks so much and congrats again!
