Two China Dolls and a Prince!

This blog chronicles the story of 2 of our adoptions, both older children when they came home. It begins in 2008 and will continue in the hopes we can be of encouragement and information to anyone thinking of older child adoption.

Yeah, we finally got it, after 72 days of agonizing waiting, the PA, or preliminary approval!! This means we have the green light to go ahead and submit the 'BIG" file, the dossier. I have it all ready, just waiting for the homestudy to be done. Then we can get our fingerprints and be on our way! Jazmin keeps getting on her toy cell phone and "calling" the "workers" in China to let them know we're coming in "10 hours" to get Judi; I wish! At least now I can finally put her picture here; doesn't she just have the cutest face! I "think" she's about 2 here.
Just yesterday, Jazmin said, "I'm getting taller to be a big sister, am I, Mommy?" She talks about the things she will show Judi and even says what she WON'T show her, lol! Now if I could just get that across to the big kids!
Now that we have PA, I feel I can really start working on Jazmin's room, putting organizers in there, getting it all set up for two sweet little girls! I'm trying to sell stuff to raise money to buy the things I need for in there instead of using the loan; have to find some time to get stuff on Ebay and it's garage sale season!i
