A Bright Sun-Shiney Day

Perfectly beautiful. That was today. 75 degrees and perfect for some quick yard work and our first lawn mowing of the spring! Whoo Hoo! It took a few tries but I finally got the mower fired up! Got a little sun burned even. Good times.


In adoption news - we are feeling good about wrapping up with week 12. Hard to believe we are entering the 13th week of waiting, which, upon completion, will take us to 3 MONTHS OF WAITING! "THE WINDOW" Oooooh, Ahhhhh. That exciting "window" of time where we could reasonably expect a call anytime! Stay tuned, people!
Also, GREAT news - we heard back from our very patient caseworker, Jessica on our necessary homestudy updates. We don't have to worry about updating our homestudy. She says, and I quote, "Our in country rep has informed us that dossier documents are good for two years in Ethiopia." YAY!
This week I will work on submitting our letter to USCIS requesting a new fingerprint appointment to keep our Immigration Approval letter current. This is the ever important I171-H from the US government saying we are allowed to adopt internationally. Our fingerprints expire in a couple months, and we MUST make sure this is taken care of - pray that there are no glitches with this. We can't bring home baby K without it!
Until we blog again - ONWARD!
