An Introduction with an Explanation.

Hi all! We just returned from our annual trip to a state directly to our south.  We do this every year to reunite the kids from Ghana with other children from their homeland.  I will post pics of this soon and let you know just how Bubbly did (umm…GREAT).  I have seen more healing than…

Two Years in a Row.

Hi Mighty,Our updated adoption paperwork arrived in China today, the exact same day it did last year, which happens to be your dad’s birthday.  He’s pretty sure there couldn’t be a better gift then having all of the paperwork behind us and getting ready to get you.  Especially since he’ll be the one traveling this…

Oh Mighty…

Hi Mighty,Late last week we thought our dossier was on its way to the country you currently reside.  Sadly, we got the call that it couldn’t go because FPD’s and my blood tests had expired during this ridiculous waiting game we call the paperchase. So, off to the lab we went.  My letter is done,…

Off You Go.

Hi Mighty,After the news that we needed a whole new stack of paperwork to adopt you (that we couldn’t reuse the paperwork we had used for Dolly just one short year ago), we scrambled to get it done.  I worked so hard to get letters notarized and sealed.  I got the news yesterday that they…

Holy Smokes!

Mighty,I can’t believe it, something actually went quicker than I expected with your adoption!!!  FPD and I were fingerprinted on 5/17 and our approval arrived in the mail today!  Can you believe it?!? –FullPlateMom,who wonders if the 11th time is the charm!

Hey Mighty, FPD and I are headed to our friendly local USCIS office to be fingerprinted for your adoption.  I had to write you a note, partly because of the irony, and partly celebratory.  We’re happy to be taking this step, but this is the ELEVENTH time we’ve made this trip.  We were fingerprinted twice…

The Silver Lining.

Hi Mighty,We got new pictures of you today.  But, we also got some bummer news.  We need to re-do all of our paperwork to get you here.  I guess it’s a small price to pay for such a big gift, but it’s still got me down.   There was a silver lining though, we got…

Two Important Letters to Go with a Miracle

Hey Mighty,I’m sitting in the Surgical Waiting Room at our local children’s hospital waiting to get an update on your baby sister’s heart miracle.  So far, all is going better than could be expected.  She’s rocking her heart surgery.  I had to write a note to you though, because as I sat here I got…

Mighty Mite

Hey Mighty,We found you today.  I think you might have been waiting awhile for someone to find you.  I have no idea how many lists you landed on, how many people looked at your file or who considered you but decided that you weren’t truly theirs. All I know is, I’m glad it happened, because…
