It is hard to believe that it is already time for Thanksgiving. We would like to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving.

No new news on the adoption. There is a meeting on Nov.28th so we will wait and see what we hear after that. We are thankful that we atleast already have all of our paperwork done and over there.

Today is my birthday. We went out to lunch. While we were there we saw a little boy who is from Vietnam. He was so cute and such a happy little guy. Maybe by next Thanksgiving we will be able to be thankful for our little one. Right now it just did my heart good to see this little guy.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Conference call today...

Today we had our first "group" conference call. They wanted to go over some changes that are going on within Vietnam. What we were told was what we really already knew. The changes about the I-600 within Vietnam. These changes will be happening soon and will be happening as families are already traveling. Noone knows what to expect and how long it will take to perfect these changes.
We were also told that the treaty will need to be renewed by June '08. We did not know about this. This may be the time when intercountry adoption fees may be more. We will just have to wait and see. God is in control!
Mainly, they asked all families to be patient and flexible. As we all know, sometimes that is very hard to do.
SO...we really don't know much more than before but that is ok. God is in control and we will trust HIM!
Today...I spent the morning in the baby's room going through some wonderful things given to us from a great friend! That is always fun to do and kept my mind focused on our little guy and not other things.
Again, we thank everyone for their prayers and good thoughts during this time.

Until later...

Another Month

It is hard to believe that we are already into November. It seems like this year has flown by.

Last night was Halloween and the kids were busy. Donald took Emilie out. She was Frankenstein's "wife". She got a lot of candy and now I will have to toss it away a little at a time so they don't notice it.

The baby's room is almost completed. We just need to finish painting the letters for his name on the wall and get the dresser. It looks really cute and can't wait to share photos with everyone.

Things seem to be moving slowly right now for the adoption process. It looks like there may be another change coming but we are waiting to hear details from our agency. I am not sure whether this will slow things down even more or speed things up. We are just trying hard to keep the Faith. We know that God has a plan to bring our baby boy and us together.

Please continue to pray for us as we continue "the wait".

Until later...
