Waiting...Waiting & more Waiting!!

The title of this blog pretty much sums up the China adoption process. Right now we are waiting on our adoption agency to approve our homestudy so that we can submitt it to US governement for I-800A approval. Once we submitt than will wait for that approval and once we have that approval than our paperwork goes to China for approval and the waiting goes on and on!!

I am not normally a super patient person (as y'all know) but, I am learning that there are things out of my control and that everything will happen when it is suppose to. But it doesn't make it any easier. So, for now I will just make sure that my paperwork is ready to go and that everyone else will be organized and timely!!

On another note Jake is having surgery tomorrow so that should keep me busy and distracted for a few days while I nurse him back to health :)

New Pictures & A New Name

We requested a update from a service in China about our little darling daughter and much to our surprise and joy we also received 3 updated pictures!! We were so thrilled but, it caused us to pause and begin to think about her "American" name.
I thought it was going to be an easy process picking a name (well it was for Jake) but, I was wrong! When I was prego with Jake, John took total control and picked the name, he was instant!! Seriously, I only got to weigh in on middle names. At the time we agreed that I was in charge of picking the next child's name. At the time, I thought to myself easy peasy!! NOT!! I definitely had ideas but, so did everyone else. So after a lot of thinking and listen to other peoples ideas, we have decided on:
