We are bursting with joy today, we are approved. WOW. Praise the Lord!! This is His journey and we are just following along. I wasn't sure I would make it thru another weekend waiting, waiting, to see if the next week would be it. Hubby said " it's about time" as I screamed " we are APRROVED!!!" I did have to ask if it was a joke, I just couldn't believe it after all this time.

Our daughter, Miss Kat, looking as though she has all the patience in the world, had no idea what we were all excited about, she just knew it was something about Chloe, her China sister, as she calls her. She then drew around her hand and wrote "Kat" and her foot and wrote "Chloe". Not sure what that means but it's for Chloe and in an envelope already.

We sent off a little fuzzy bed pillow that says "Be Happy" and a photo album of her room, her clothes, us, to Chloe today. I try to send her something little so she knows we are thinking of her.

We went school clothes shopping and got some great bargains, I was happy to buy the boys 2 shirts, a jacket, shoes, 4 pairs jeans, unders for each for only $90 each. All new stuff!! The girls were a bit harder to buy for but they were good in staying in budget for their things too. It made me feel good to get it out of the way and to know we were able to get them nice stuff for good prices. Every penny is counted and pinched around here:)

All I can say today is I am so thankful we have made it through this huge trying step to getting our paperwork to China to start our countdown to go get our daughter. To our daughter Chloe, hang on girl, we are moving forward!!!!! Just like you, on those birthday skates:) We love you!
