3rd care package

Posted On: Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010 at 7:26 am

We sent our 3rd care package yesterday.  Yea!  We sent popcorn, hair clippies, drawing paper, and colored pencils.  We’ve heard that she really loves to draw so I hope she likes that.  We are so excited.  It will be 3 months on the 22nd since we were approved to adopt Min Jiao.  That means CCAI will be asking for an update!  In the package we also included a letter to the orphanage saying that if Jiao Jiao has any questions for us they could tell our agency.  I hope there is some sort of communication  (via CCAI) that happens between us this month!

We’re still waiting for our fingerprint appointment from USCIS.  Also waiting on our documents to come back from the L.A. consulate.  Hopefully it won’t be too much longer.  I got a phone call from the consulate last Monday saying they needed ANOTHER document—something that wasn’t specified by CCAI or the consulate in the instructions. 🙁   Hopefully that didn’t delay it too much.  At least things are still moving along.  We just need to take a few more family pictures and our dossier will be ready to go!  🙂

    Okay, so I finally got enough peace and quiet to read through all your entries. I love that you are doing this. It gives great insight on the process, not to mention the time you spend in anticipation.

    I knew your husband as a child, and we are now FB friends. When I saw his post about adoption, I thought, “Oh thats interesting, I’ve always wanted to adopt,” and clicked over to read. I’ve gone through your whole story in one sitting and am trying to hold back the tears. It is so touching, and such a BIG and WONDERFUL thing that you get to do for this child. As a mother myself, I just ache at the thought that there are children out there who are unloved and yearn for a family to be a part of.

    I don’t think we’ve ever met, but I just wanted to say good for you. You are an inspiration.

    Is this…Penny Used-to-be-Payne? If so, we have most certainly met. I was roommates with Jeni (Payne) long, long ago. 🙂 I’ve gotten several comments about what a great thing we’re doing. That is one of the reasons we embarked on this crazy adventure–I couldn’t think about the millions of children without families and not do SOMETHING. But now that we’ve come this far, it seems more and more like we will be the lucky ones when it’s all said and done. 🙂 You know, you’ve inspired me. I think I’ll write an entry to this tune. Thank you for the kind words. Makes me feel good about continuing this blog. 🙂

    Absolutely awesome! I saw the post on FB from Todd’s account. Bonnie & I think you are wonderful people for doing this adoption. You are indeed blessed and inspired by our Heavenly Father and so will Jiao Jiao. BTW, how old is she? I didn’t see her age in your posts.

    We’ll keep praying for you that the adoption gets done quickly and you can bring your new daughter home!
