And It Came!!!!!

We were notified of our LID today, yeah!!!!!  This means that the CCAA has 33 days to produce our LOA or it won't happen until after Chinese New Year.  The problem is that the Chinese govt. shuts down for three weeks for New Year.  If we get our LOA (approval) by Feb. 3 then we should travel about April 1. 
Please keep Quinn in your prayers.  She needs them.

What's the Hold Up?

Today is Dec. 12, 2010.  Our dossier went to China on Oct. 8 and still we have no Log In Date, this is the date that our formal application gets logged into the the China Center for Adoption Affairs.  We should be approved by now and preparing to leave just after the first of the year.  But we're not.  It seems that the service responsible for transferring our application funds had a problem.  Our fees were there when they should have been but the service used a different account and China didn't recognize the new process. 
Needless to say we are still waiting and so is Quinn along with her medical needs which should be addressed very soon.  Please remember her in your prayers and help us bring her home quickly.

Well we can't agree on her name but we do agree that she belongs at home with us.  Her Chinese name is Qui but we are currently calling her Quinn.  Quinn is three yrs. old and living in an orphanage in Chingqing, China and is one of the most beautiful little girls ever.  So I'm a little biased.  We have two children from China, Jacob and AnNI, and we are excited to bring home just one more.  Quinn has a blood disorder but, we don't know the extent of it just yet. Check back often to watch us bring her home!!! 
Warning to dad, she likes money!!!!!

Jacob wants his little sister to be called "Annie" because "Annie is different than
AnNi mom."  AnNi wants a little sister to put make-up on and play dress-up with.

Bryant and his beautiful wife Amanda won't be around much, they live in
North Carolina, but they're looking forward to having another peanut to harrass.
We sure miss them!!!

We have a blessed family and look forward to bringing home our only missing family member!!!
Let the fundraising begins!!!!
