Paperchase update


News on the adoption front...

 Our home study is almost ready to send off
to our placing agency for review.
Once there, it'll take about two weeks to get approved.
Then we'll finally get to send off our I-800A.
I know I said before that I'm not really motivated to do our paperwork
this time around.  And I'm still not.  
But I'm excited that, some time this summer, it will be completed, and
we'll be DTC!

And since I have a hard time posting without photos,
here are a few from what we've been doing a lot of lately.


Who knows?
Maybe next summer we'll have three "fish" in the pool!
Or are they whales? Or dolphins?
Maybe Madeline will enlighten us.

Have a great weekend!

I don't like doing paper work either. :) But I hope you will finish it soon! ;)

Lovely photos, especially the last one, it's incredibly sharp!

LOL! I'm sure Madeline will keep you on track :-)

I loathe paperwork too, I totally get it! It took my forever to get my rear in gear to get our dossier off to China!

Great action shot on that last one. The colors are so vibrant. I like your "style"! Good luck in the paper work!

Elena Friday, May 18, 2012  

Good luck I hope you'll have more fish in the water soon too! Great pics as always! Your little ones are so stinkin' cute!

Brooke Friday, May 18, 2012  

I LOVE the one of your little girl jumping. There's something spectacular about it!! And I agree... paperwork stinks. But, waiting, to me, stinks even more. We're patiently waiting for our referral! Or, as patiently as possible, at least. xoxo!!

Aw, good luck to you! Paper work is never fun and I always procrastinate.

Love your gorgeous photos. Looks like lots of fun!!

Deb Friday, May 18, 2012  

Love these pics! Can't wait to hear the news that you are DTC!!! Yes, are they dolphins or whales or fish or sharks? I'll ask Madeline ;)

Brooke Friday, May 18, 2012  

Gorgeous shots!! Keeping fingers crossed that you can add another fishie to the school!!

Stephanie Friday, May 18, 2012  

Dolphins for sure...that leap is definitely dolphinesque.

And the paperwork? Ugh. Hard enough to do it when you are doing it for the first time and are childless. Add in two busy (and beautiful) kids and it is not surprising you are not motivated. But progress is being made nonetheless.

Well that is exciting about things progressing along. :)

Love your little fish- looks like so much fun.

Diane Saturday, May 19, 2012  

How exciting!!! Can't wait to hear more about your journey to your third blessing!
God Bless,

Kim Cunningham Saturday, May 19, 2012  

Glad you are moving forward through the hoops! I'm sure the paperwork is very intensive. Press on!

The swimming pictures are so cute! Did you get your expo? Got a tiny tutorial on Tuesday. Nothing you probably won't already know by then. :)

Kim Saturday, May 19, 2012  

I love the photos. All of that paperwork has to be difficult. It will all be worth it, though. ;)

Jessica Sunday, May 20, 2012  

Hi Eva! Thanks so much for the kind words you left on our blog. Congratulations on your adoption!

We have just completed our Dossier and are hoping to be DTC this coming week... Yay!

Hoping the rest of your paperwork goes smoothly... Looking forward to following along!

Have a lovely week ahead.

How exciting!! I've heard from friends how much paperwork there is in adoption so I don't blame you on the lack of motivation - but how EXCITING to have three little ones to love! Happy for you - and love these photos. Especially the one of your girl jumping! Perfection!

Jancy Tuesday, May 29, 2012  

Yeah so excited for your guys!!!!


About This Blog

This blog is a place where we have shared our lives with family and friends while we waited to bring our daughter, Madeline, home from China and while we actually traveled to China for her. It is also a place where we will continue to share our life experiences, as we try to glorify God and raise our two precious dumplings from China.

And now we wait to bring Havi home from China.
