Sunday Snapshot: Exciting News

Guess what!!!

We have started our paperwork to bring home a sweet baby girl from China.  We are hoping to have our dossier to China by January.  After China receives our dossier we wait for a referral.  It is taking 4-6 months from referral until travel to China. We would love to travel at the end of May/beginning of June, but that would require all of our steps to be on the fast side.   I know God has the perfect daughter for our family and knows the exact right time for her to join us, but it is so hard to wait.
Taylor is so excited that Bailee Joy will be sleeping in the crib in her room.  We will see how excited she is once Bailee gets here.

Hi. Thanks for the response to the post on RQ. That is awesome that we are DTC together!! You wee told 4 to 8 months till travel, we were told 5 to 9; while they are not very far off from each other at all, I like your odds of 4 months better. Ha ha! ;) Blessings, Lynette
