Our little peanut

Hi everyone. We are still waiting on Lilly's visa it will be another 3 to 7 weeks. Let's just hope the first week in Dec. We got her height and weight today. She is 23 inches long and 11.5 pounds. Great for a small 6 month old. She turn 1 in 5 days!!! We will talk to the doctor about it but I am sure she will grow once she is home. A friend of mine is picking up her daughter this week. The beautiful Valencia Jade is finally going home to Maine. We are so happy for her. Also we are eagerly awaiting new pictures of Lilly. We have not recieved any since the begining of September.
No news on China. I think it will be at least another 6-8 months if not longer.

Ok our biggest hudle is over. The Hatian office that decides if you can adopt a speciific child (Lilly) has said that we can. We now apply for the Visa. They have decided that we should apply for a regular visa. This means she must be doing ok physically. This is a prayer answered. She should be home in about 4 to 6 weeks. Pray that it is home as soon as possible. It is a good day!

Still Waiting

Audrey called today and we are still waiting for 1 more signature. Then we wait for the Visa. It is looking like we will miss her first birthday. This makes me very sad. I know she will not know the difference but I know. She will not get to look at herself smashing a cake on her 1st birthday. We will of course celebrate later. Just wait until next years birthday. Hopefully she will be home by Thanksgiving. They keep saying it won't be long but it feels very long. She is back at the orphanage. Marie (the director) says she seems to have put on a few pounds.
In other news we know nothing about China. We are now taking random guesses. I think we will go to China in July of next year. Maybe I will start a poll.


Ok Rory will be 7 months old at her refferal and we will go get her in July. When she is 9 months old.

Anyone else care to guess? You can just post in comments or I can post them here if you email me your guess. i need to pass time.

Closer to getting Lilly!!

Hi everyone. Well I had a very busy but fun weekend. My cousin is now married and on her Honeymoon. My family threw me the most beautiful shower. I will post pics soon. I got so many presents. I had to leave 3 suitcases full for my parents to bring out at thanksgiving. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!!! It was such a wonderful shower. It had a book theme. The girls are definitly going to be spoiled.
This morning Audrey from TFN called. The woman that is in IBESR temporarily has been told she can sign out 7 files. Lilly is one of them!!! Yeah!!! We also heard from Marie that we should be out on Friday, Monday or Tuesday!!!! I am so happy. Then we can apply for the medical visa. We are told that should take a week possibly two!!! Then our baby can come home!!! They think she may need surgery on her intestins. We have a doctor here for her and when she comes home he will be giving us a refferal to a specialist who has delt with Haitian adopted children with intestinal problems before. I really feel she will recover from whatever she has.
Anyway my husband is off from work next Friday the 20th till at least the 25th but can get more time if he needs it. My last day at work is next monday so we are thinking that we will fly tp Haiti sometime between the 20th and the 25th and just wait it out. We are waiting to hear more from Audrey tomorrow but it may finally be getting close.
