Coffee Fundraiser

We will be doing a little fundraising over the next few months to raise money for the adoption expenses.  I am posting a coffee fundraiser now, all you do is go to the website HERE, so our account is used, and order whatever you want and we will get a portion of the sale!
Remember you have to use this address so we will get the money......
Thanks so much for helping us bring Sarah Kate home!!!

Sarah Kathrin Yu Ning

Here she is, Sarah Kathrin Olivia Kate Yuning
(These pics are from a video of her, so they are a little fuzzy.)



Today is a GOOD day!!! We found out we received our Prelimenary Approval for our Sarah Kate!! We also found out our LID (Logged In Date) was yesterday.  What do these mean? Well, as much as I can understand, the PA says that now they will start the process of an official approval for us to adopt Sarah Kate.  The LID means that our information is now in China's system, if we did not have a specified child, it would just sit there and wait until we did.  However, we do have a specified child so they can now begin translating the many documents we sent them, making sure we are worthy of adopting this little one. 
Now what happens you ask???
We wait......some more......it could be a month or it could be 3 months before we get the final approval......once we get the final approval we will hopefully be traveling to China about
 2-3 months later!!!

The Waiting........

I loved this post from another adoption mommy.........it is so true!  Over the past two weeks I have literally been stalking my email.  It's so hard to relax and have patience when you're waiting, waiting for a doctor to reply to your many emails about a file of a little one you are IN LOVE with or waiting for all these other people to decide if you're able to adopt an orphan who has nothing, even though your willing to give them EVERYTHING they could possibly need, the most important being LOVE, possible medical treatments, a forever family, and a place to call home. Ugh, oh well, we wait on.  We get one thing we have been stalking waiting for and then we wait again for the next needed thing to come........

We are finally DTC (Dossier to China)!!! Yayyyyyy!! Our adoption agency sent it to China on Friday.  So happy about this.  It has taken us a little longer than it should, there have been delays every where there could be a delay.......hoping that things go faster from this point.  I'm ready to get to China!!  Check back soon, hope to have some more good news!! :-)
