Officially Waiting for Ms. Gracie!

Well our dossier was approved on June 15. We are officall waiting for our baby girl. Hopefully, God willing, we will have a referral by Christmas that would definately be the only present I needed. We got the news while in Hawaii which made the trip just perfect.
Now Hawaii was beyond awesome. Everything you hear or read about is true. It's like paradise on earth. I think my favorite was the Road to Hana which we did on Maui. The sites, waterfalls, tropical foliage, black sand beaches just too much. I will try to post a few pics later.

Dossier is on the Way!!!!!!!!!

Well at last I caught a break. I was able to send the dossier in after all. I'm so excited I can hardly sit still. They are going to send the forms from the Sec. of State straight to my agency instead of back to me. Everything will arrive on the desk Monday. Prayerfully, everything will be in order and we'll be officially waiting! This was the last paper step in the process. It feels so good to finally have something accomplished.

In other breaking news, we leave for Hawaii in less than 12 hours and my hair is a HOT MESS! I don't know what the heck I'm going to do with it. Oh well, no one in Hawaii knows me. Aloha!

So Close but No Cigar

I was soooo excited thinking we would be able to send in our dossier tomorrow before we go off to Hawaii. Well of course nothing is ever smooth in this journey. I mailed papers to Austin to have them certified. I overnighted them and they are supposed to overnight them back with the enclosed envelope I provided. I called today because I didn't receive it. I was told that they are behind and probably won't get to mine until tomorrow, which means it will probably get back to me on Saturday. We will be on plane to Hawaii on Sat. morning so that won't work. The lady I spoke with acted like "Oh well sucks to be you" This throws us back at least a week because I won't be able to send the dossier in until we get back. Not a big deal in the whole scheme of things but I had my heart sat on having everything done before we left. Oh well I guess the rude lady in Austin had a point, right now it does suck to be me!
