One week since we began this adventure

So, it was one week ago today, Good Friday, that we made the final decision to begin this crazy adventure.  We have gotten off to a pretty good start.  Yesterday, we were fingerprinted at the city jail and picked up our passport applications.  I struggled a bit to get a live person to cooperate in MN for our state clearance, but by the end of the day, we were all in sync there. They allowed me to email copies of our request along with verification that they were mailed so that they could begin the searches.  Rhode Island did the same and both sets of results should be returned via fax today. That will leave only Texas to receive and we will be done with this portion of the process.

Last night, I worked on the pre-application paperwork for about 3 hours.  Once completed, this will go to WACAP (placement agency) and they will review, translate, and send to China for final approval on the age waiver we need.

So, our main portion of work for the weekend will be to button up a few more questions on the pre-approval and then to complete our Home Study History questionnaire and get it in the mail for delivery on Monday.

In our free time..... I hope to figure out how to add a slide show to this blog so that I can introduce some of you who don't know us as well to the rest of the family!  I pray that you all have a wonderful restful weekend!
