The magic form, she is here!

Apparently U.S. Homeland Security finally determined that our adoption would not, in fact, present a grave and immediate threat to the Republic, and has approved our paperwork.

Our I-171H form arrived the mail yesterday, which is the last major hurdle prior to getting our entire dossier translated and sent to China. (This is, as the kids say, a mega-w00t! occasion.)

One more big step towards Lorelai coming home to her family.

    Woot, indeed!!!!

    That is great news. Hang in there you two. Your wait will end before you know it and your lives will be thrown into a furious (but glorius) fast forward once you become parents.

    And when she’s a teen and tells you that you reall don’t love her, you’ll have all these posts archived for her to read. 😉 And then she’ll know just what a lucky girl she really is.
