Offically going nuts......

yes - it's true - I'm officially going nuts with the waiting.

Today is day 73 of waiting for our LSC. I'm praying it will be here before Christmas -- it would help me sleep at night knowing this step in the process was complete.

And Friday will be 12-weeks since we mailed USCIS our request to have our immigrations (I-171H) paperwork updated. I impatiently wait for mailman everyday -- maybe today I think. I have emailed our local USCIS office twice about our update and haven't heard anything back from them. Of course they don't have a phone number I can call. Soon I will have to take a more aggressive approach.

Tomorrow Thunder would have been 8 years old. I think that mixed in with the holidays have made the wait the past couple of weeks harder.

A family picking up their daughter at Chloe's orphanage were able to take pictures of Chloe for us. I woke up Thanksgiving morning to 28 new pictures of Chloe!!!! That was such a blessing and I was so thankful for them. She's growing up so fast. They are letting her hair grow and she's got the cutest little smile. I can't wait to bring her home. Soon....I pray.

Other than me totally losing it we are all doing well. We all have colds....again. And I promise to post more pictures of Cassie soon.

No word yet Pam. Still just waiting.

And thanks Melissa -- we need all the prayers we can get right now.

Hang in there Sherry. We are all right there with you. All the pieces will fall into place and you will be on your way to Chloe. We ARE going to travel together to get our girls. Hugs are coming your way from NJ.

So happy you were able to get new pics of Chloe, I know how much that means:)I hope you can keep yourself busy during the holidays so you don't go crazy with the waiting. Can't wait to see new pics of Cassie too. I am sure she is growing so much just like Makenna. 2 is just around the corner!

So sorry things are slow -- the wait must just be excruciating knowing she's there, you are here and waiting... that is great you got updated photos to hang your heart on while you stalk the mailman... i hope you get the word on both these very important documents soon!
