Another day goes by....

with no news. Found out our agency did request expedition. However, usually the CCA* will turn people down unless you are Chinese or your parents are Chinese. So this means that we went through the regular waiting for LOA pile and then the expedited pile ,were turned down and went back into the waiting for LOA pile. Make sense?? Me either.

Anyway this means we will most likely wait over 100 days for our LOA. (we are now on day 78)
So what to do while waiting? I cleaned the girls room, (yes Hope and Grace are sharing) sorted through the piles of clothes and donated what will not fit Grace and then started sewing. I would like to make a couple matching outfits or pinafores for the girls. I am trying to find someone to embroider shirts with little Chinese girls and the words "Mei Mei" and "Jie Jie" on them.

Now, what I should be doing is getting all the doctors lined up and make sure everything is set but the doctor I am going to gave us a referral for the ENT and the surgeon but they won't see us until she is home. So, we wait and wait some more.

In the meantime, I took the kids here and they had loads of fun. Only cost me $15.00. Well worth it for two hours of running around and playing games.

This is what we left with. Nice frogs,plastic, thank goodness.

Getting ready to go.
running after mom said we have to leave.

tuckered out. Now excuse me while I go take a sanitizer bath, a must after visiting this place. (LOL)

Desiree, you may want to check out my friend Lisa's site at
She embroiders a ton and I think I've seen little Chinese girls with names that she has done. She does excellent work and is a sweet sweet friend.
OH, that LOA just has to be around the corner. I am praying fervently for you. You are doing well to try and stay busy. I was just remembering today what my daddy used to say, "A watched pot never boils!" And here I am on big whopping day 24!

I really hope that your LOA comes soon. It is just so hard right now.
Eli loves Chucky Cheese. He just runs all over the place, which means I'm running all over after him...maybe that should be my new exercise routine!

Oh Desiree, I was hoping to see an LOA posted. I'm so sorry it's taking so long. Keep the faith, hopefully not much longer. You get the award for Best Mom taking the kids to Chucky Cheese. I haven't ventured there in a long time.

I am praying that you all hear about LOA very very SOON.

I know what you mean about a sanitizer bath. :) Funny!!!! And yes be glad the frogs are plastic. I just found out our toad has a lifespan of 40 years!!!!!!
