We got both our PA and our LID last night. In the words of our coordinator, "Now the race is on."
I have already spent about 12-15 hours JUST working on paperwork, emails, and phone calls this week. UGH. So thankful that she's worth every single second. Remind me of that when my laundry piles up and the house is messy this week! :)
I am tentatively leaving for China to pick up our girl on Saturday, July 16. Less than four weeks! AND we're heading to Family Camp at the Bill Rice Ranch next Saturday, so aside from mountains and mountains of adoption paperwork, travel plans, packing, etc, we're having some much-needed and anticipated FAMILY TIME before Mommy and Gabbey head to China.
We need a name for our newest girl.....going to skype her this weekend and we would like to let her pick from a couple of names we've chosen. Problem is, we've already chosen TWO girl names this year, and our minds are quite mush. LOL She can't stay "the girl we're adopting" for much longer! She needs a name! :) Any ideas are welcome! We prefer feminine sounding names that can be shortened (think Eliana/Ellie, Gabriella/Gabbey, Alyssia/Lyssie) and have a good meaning. That narrows down our choices quite a bit.
Well, I've rambled enough for tonight. I am SO excited to share all the ways the LORD is answering our prayers regarding the details of this adoption, but it will have to wait until this Momma has had some sleep!
