Can I Get An AMEN?

A woman has a right to snoop in her husband's email inbox. I just firmly believe that...especially after 21 years. After all, one can never tell what they might find. How about this juicy tidbit old JB just passed over today?

"Greetings from the Hanoi Adoptions Unit at US Embassy Hanoi.

As you can see in the attachment, based on a preliminary determination of orphan status by the US Citizenship and Immigration Service you are now authorized to travel to Vietnam"

The Lord knew we needed this today. Our height and weight update was a little concerning...3 and 1/2 months and we up to 9.7 lbs. Food doesn't seem to be a priority for us. Boy, is that gonna change!

Hang on baby girl, we're comin' soon!!! SOMEONE tell me to order my VISAS to I can officially start bouncing off the walls.

Yippeeeeee! What a great early Christmas gift! Now, let's have a Step 9 to go with that one! :)

Leigh - DoriGrace's weight is right about where Phoebe's was at that stage. Don't worry - they're tiny but mighty! And congrats on these fabulous steps! Whoo hooooo!

I would not not be overly concerned about height and weight updates. According to our Dec. update Emaline shrunk half an inch in the last 6 weeks.

Congrast on your I600 approval. Praying that G&R is right behind it!
