We have been blessed with two special daughters and two sons from Eastern Europe. We welcome you to follow our journey as a family of five, waiting to travel and pick up #6, with the ins and outs of family, education, farm life, and love!

Positive News Button

Thanks to McKenna's help, we now have a button that will link you from our blog to our sponsor page on the Reece's Rainbow site! YEA! (Thanks McKenna, you are wonderful!)

So if you would like to link our blog, click on the words 'grab this button' under M's picture to the left, or add copy the coding below and add it in the html section of your blog! It will create this picture/button on your blog! We would love for others to know about our journey to adopt little M! (Since Blogger is being silly, the button is at the bottom of this post!)

We got word from J in E.E. yesterday that our little princess is cleared for adoption, so as soon as we get our paperwork finished and across the ocean, we can start talking about a travel date! I enjoy positive news!

Everything is coming along. Pam, our case worker for our home study is coming to the house on Wednesday (1/7). Hannah also has her medical appointment for our home study on that day (1/7). Our money to the USCIS office in Columbus was sent on Monday (12/29) and so was our second round of child abuse clearance papers (because someone at the office gave me bad info the first time around!) My employment letter is complete and Doug's is on the way! So, we have all the pieces for our home study completed or scheduled for the next week. Once we have our home study in hand, fingerprints complete, and driving for county notaries and apostilled, we will be ready to send things to our princess' country! YEA!

The last element that comes into play for an adoption is finances. We have a good portion of it, but would be grateful for any contributions, no matter how small. Your prayers for our journey mean the most to us!

Others we know that are ahead of us have been given an early February date to travel. Knowing that, and a pure guess, maybe we will travel in April or May?
