Our girls

That Chloe girl of ours is so happy this week. She has a buddy, she calls her "Wee- dah." Vita is our student we were to have for just 5 days to allow her to acclimate to the local college with an American family as she is from China. Let's just say, Vita and Chloe are like sisters, they hit it off really well.

So well, if fact, we asked to keep Vita as our friendship student, we are considered her "American family" for good and we are here for her to lean on when she needs us. We already have done this for 2 young men from China, but one is doing an internship in China and not returning till next year so we are happy we will be able to help Vita by being her "family" as well. She is so sweet, an only child so we feared she would be overwhelmed by all of our children, at the least:)

Not so at all. She is patient and kind, the kids are fighting over her. She is just like one of our kids! We are going to miss her being here. Chloe is loving being able to speak Chinese with her, she even came to me and said "Can I have whoo-aug-wahh and I guessed it was cucumber, the latest love of Chloe's tastes. She doesn't ever want to use her Chinese with me, so I was amazed.
In news of our sons- we got back our dossier documents in 4 days from the State sealing them, I was totally impressed by that. 4 days! Way to go State of PA! Now they are at the Consulate to be authenticated and we are DONE. 2nd agency fee, dossier fee and dossier will go off to agency for translation and then off to China. WOOO HOOO.

Our timeline for Chloe is so very close to this time for Chance, we logged in our dossier to China for Chloe on Sept 4, 2008. One step at a time and another one done.........

Do you know if you will definitely be able to bring back the oldest boy yet? I am praying so hard that your family is able to keep all three children together.
