We got Malia’s bedroom done. I think I still need a few things for the walls yet. We received PA (pre-approval) today from China. Whoohoo, we most likely wont be able to travel before July though. We will see what happens. Here are a few pictures of her bedroom.

Still waiting..........

I have all the other documents notarized, state sealed and authenticated except the form
I-797-C which is the one that I'm waiting for from "Home Land Security". This form is the one from the US Government that gives me permission to adopt. I've asked other people how long theirs are taking. The average is about 5 weeks so I should have it within the next two weeks.

Building walls

The new wall is up for Dustin’s new bedroom ( THANK YOU G. NEFF). We closed off the computer room so make a new bedroom for him, it will be bigger then the one he has now. Malia will get Dustin’s old room. Both rooms are getting re-painted and new carpet. My mother took me shopping and bought a 6 piece nursery set for Malia’s room. I went with the “Gossamers Wings” set from Babies R Us. I’m not sure what color I’m going to paint her room yet but we picked out a pretty cream color carpet.
I received my finished home study today !!! Yeah !
We will take all the paper work to Harrisburg tomorrow to get state certified. Then mail it off to the Chinese Consulate in NY to be authenticated. All I need now is that darn I-797C from Immigration, then we are done with the paper work.
I will get pictures up of the nursery when we get it done.
