LOI submitted

OK, I really have to better about this blog thing!  I can't believe it has been almost a month since we last posted.  Yes of course we accepted this little one.  She is already our little girl and our sister.  DH well he played hard to get but in the end he knew the same as I did that she was ours.  God really did make this happen.  We had about five events occur the weeks we were deciding that came out of the blue and solidified that this was our path.  I totally believe God shows us signs if we are willing to look for them.

Anyhow, the hardest part is that our little one is a special focus child with an agency in TEXAS ugh!  We couldn't get her file moved to an agency in Colorado (Denver has a huge China only agency.)  So after some work and the help of our Texas agency we found a great agency to help us with our homestudy etc.  Best part, they have a contract social worker in Colorado Springs.  Although this agency was a bit more, they were interested in expediting our paperwork etc.  We have 6 mos to get our dossier to China or we loose our little one.  I don't stress but this would make anyone stress.  Especially when most agencies were telling us that it would be 5 mos for jsut the homestudy.

So we have already have had 2 of our visists and they weren't nearly as bad as we had thought they might be.  We are average normal people but still!  One more meeting this Sunday and then I think we are done but we will see.  The worst part for us, keeping the house clean for 3 weeks straight!
