We have completed all but one document for Mailer 1 to our agency and are 2 1/2 weeks ahead of our deadline! Whoo Hoo! Additionally, we held another successful fundraiser with our 2nd wine tasting event and it was a great time with friends and family! We have much praise for Jackie, Steven and Lisa of the Artisan Caffe' who hosted our event. Of course, we couldn't have pulled off any of this without our dear friends Tom & Liz Crowder-THANK YOU! For those of you who joined us and partook of the "taste" we are humbled by your love and support.
We also had a small celebration in honor of our daughter's 2nd birthday March 29. Bennett Shiyi Busby- Wo ai ni-WE LOVE YOU!!!!
A much anticipated Spring Break provided opportunity for us to begin painting and designing Bennett's bedroom-this has been so much fun! Preparing her special spaces in her home has helped make the WAIT more bearable. Many have asked if we know our TA yet and alas, we are not yet to that late stage of the process. However, we do loosely expect to travel in the fall and feel fairly confident that we will finalize in 2010!
NOW- we send our 1st mailer which will include our completed Homestudy, once it is reviewed and accepted by our Intnl. agency-we will apply to UCIS and then wait for confirmation and invitation to be fingerprinted (again). We will most certainly update everyone again once we have that in the works in the next couple of weeks!
God has been working in wonderful ways in our lives and we want to give him our full and sincere gratitude! GOD IS GOOD!
