July 13, 2006

Well, here we are at the end of another week. This has been a week of nothing but waiting, and of course praying. Monday though we get to take yet another step toward bringing our little sweetie home! Monday we go to KC to be fingerprinted for USCIS. This is the homeland security/immigration deal that will allow us to bring Mackenzie into the states. Once we get that done we will then be back to a waiting stage. We will however in the meantime be sending our dossier documents (except for the I-171H off to D.C. to be certified and then off to the Chinese Embassy for Authentication. After we have the documents sent off for certification/authentication we will begin working on the photo pages of our home and life that we have to send with our dossier. That will at least be a fun part of the "paper chase". Once we get that I-171H back we will get that certified and authenticated and then our entire dossier packet will be ready to send off to China. We are hoping and praying that the process above will be complete and the finances in place so that we will be able to send our dossier off to our agency to go in the China packet on August 11, the 18th at the latest. If that happens we will very likely travel in early November. Imagine Kenzie, you could be home for us in time for Thanksgiving - and Wow! would we have something to give thanks about. Hey Nate man! How are you doing? Mommy and Daddy miss you so much! We know you are having a really good time though and we are very happy for that. I can't wait to hear all about your trip to the Peach Festival this weekend - make sure Gramma takes LOTS of pictures!! I think Mommy and Daddy are going to finish up your room this weekend. Once we are done with your room we will be able to get started on Kenzie's. We are going to have so much fun finishing up both of the rooms!! I love you so much buddy! Talk to you soon. Love, Mommy.It sure has been quiet around the house without our little boy at home. I cannot wait for him to get back home.Kenzie, wait until you meet your big brother. He is a character and has been praying for you and waiting for you for a long time. I am excited to see how much fun you two will have together. Kenzie, we are so excited fo you to join our family. We have found such love and support from all of our family and friends. Everyone is excited to meet you. I could probably ramble for pages, just to feel like somehow I am connecting to you - but I won't. Sweet girl, as we get ready for bed tonight you are just starting your day - I pray that you will be safe and healthy today and that you would somehow feel our love from way over here in Kansas. We are so excited to meet you in person little princess! We love you. Mommy ~T
