Dossier papers to our agency

ALL of our papers are done on our end. We overnighted all of our part of the Dossier paperwork. I spoke to our social worker, she was working on getting our homestudy completed. Looks like we are getting close...I can't wait.

Letter to the CCAA

WOW! That was hard. How do you write a letter and request a child? Ted and I had a difficult time putting it into words. The problem is...Ted writes one way and I write it completely different. We really had to work together to get it done. I am very proud of our letter...I hope they like it.

Call to USCIS

I know...I know...don't call them! However, we had not heard anything and since it was mentioned that I might have to go back and take another day off to do fingerprints...I think I should call and find out. The nicest lady answered the phone and said they apperaed to be Ok. Very cool!!!!!!

Since my test results have come back somewhat OK, we decided to schedule our Homestudy. It went great. Stinker Doodle "gave the tour" to our social worker. He even took her outside to show her the playhouse in the back yard. He told her all about the neighborhood and all the kids that live nearby. It was very cute! All went well. We sat and went over all our paperwork and determined what we need to collect. We are very close to having our Dossier ready to go to China!

Test Results

Well, nothing serious. I am not going to die (yet!). I have what you would call a "fatty" liver. I am overweight and it is affecting my liver function. The doctor says I need to exercise more, eat better and lose weight. My Doctor wrote a letter describing my ailment and that it should not hinder my duties as a Mom. It doesn't now!! However, T and I have stopped eating fast food and bought a treadmill since all this liver stuff had started. We will see how we do about getting "healthy". It's the least we can do for our children. Wish us luck!

We switched Stinker Doodle to a new pre-school. We felt it was necessary. However, he's been there a few weeks and he has his first case of Strep Throat. Stinker Doodle's teacher called and he had thrown up at school and had a fever. He never complained about his throat hurting. A good lesson for Mommy. My poor baby....
