Well it might not be Christmas just yet, but with this load, some children in Viet Nam will have a great time. This evening we packed the "gift" suitcase which contains all of the presents that we will be giving to the children at the orphanage, orphanage director as well as staff, her foster family, and the MOJ Officials. While that may not seem like a bunch, keep in mind that there are about 23 children, 17 or so staff members, and 3 MOJ Officials. It is amazing that all of the things we bought fit into one suitcase! The nice thing is that this will be empty and we can fill it with great trinkets that we will purchase while over there!
It is just one step closer to that day we have been dreaming of, where we board the plane at Lambert and head over to be united forever with our little girl. Honestly it is wearing a little thin, and we are running out of things to keep us busy. When I get up in the morning, I go down stairs, check my Blackberry to see how many work e-mails I have from over night. If there is ONE, I know it is not the day for I-600 approval, as we get one early morning e-mail which is kind of like our morning news at work. If there are TWO or more, my heart skips a beat until I open it up hoping one will be from the USCIS in Viet Nam. We shall see what tomorrow morning holds. We now sit on business day +32 waiting on that e-mail.
