Hi everyone. We received our 171H form in the mail yesterday. Which means we are almost ready to send in our dossier. Hopefully, we will have everything in a week or so. I also wanted to post some of my favorite pics from the year.

Well, there still isn't much going on on the adoption front. Our homestudy has been approved and has been recevied at the USCIS office, so hopefully in the next couple of weeks we will receive our 171H form. This is a form that says we are able to adopt internationally from the immigration office. In the mean time, we hope to gather the rest of the documents that we need for the home study. Sat. Tim and I found a crib set that was 1/2 off that we love. It is a jungle theme and as soon as I locate our camera, I will take a picture of it and post it. Love you all!

Well, it's a new year!! There has not been a whole lot going on on the adoption front. We are waiting for our case worker to approve our homestudy and then we can start to apply for grants, etc. This week 10 family's have received referrals for children. This is very exciting as for the past couple of months there have not been that many. We are hoping to have our dossier sent to the agency by the end of Jan or Feb.
