No news and waiting

Well we hope that everyone had a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

We sure did! The littles had a blast on Christmas morning for sure!

We thought we would give a little update on our adoption and that is, there's not really much to tell.

We had our fingerprints taken on Dec 15th and we are waiting to be assigned an officer at USCIS so they can go over our paperwork that we filed with them. So we are waiting for that and then their approval. 

Once we receive approval, we can move onto the next step and that is to get everything authenticated at State level and then authenticated by the Chinese Embassy.  Once that is all done we can send our dossier to China!  Hopefully, Prayerfully it will go to China in January.

Let me tell you nothing ever moves quickly in an adoption, it's all hurry up and and then wait.  Which we are good at, since this is #3.  :)

So in the meantime, we sent a Christmas package to Michael and a letter along with a camera, so hopefully we will get some photos back and soon. :) Here's a picture of what we sent. Hope he likes it. :)

So now onto the New Year!  Wishing everyone a Happy and blessed one!

Look at what we have...Again!

We are so excited to announce the Adoption Car Vinyls are back!!  Thank you to Remarkable Walls for doing this for us!

They may be a little different then the last ones but love them just as much!  We put it on our mini-van the day we got them in the mail.  Yep, that's it in the picture.  :)

These are a perfect gift for someone you may know that has adopted or even one for yourself or both!  :)

Cost is $6 / includes shipping.

*** Please use the Brown Chipin on the top right hand side bar.  

When ordering it will show 1 in the Quantity.  Please ignore that number and only put in the dollar amount of what you want to order.  Such as $6, $12, $18, etc. and I'll know how many you are ordering.  If you would like to then add a comment before submitting your order, you can put the number of vinyl's you want there.

We apologize for the inconvenience.  It's something that Chipin has done and can't get around it. 

Thank you for your understanding.
