Happy Birthday To You. Happy Birthday To You. Happy Birthday Dear Sweet AJ, Happy Birthday To You! We so wish you were here with us, little love. Do you know what a birthday party is? Well, no worries. If you don't- YOU SO WILL. I think we have more friends and family planning a party for you that Daddy and I won't have hardly anything to do but hold you and love you. I like the sound of that, AJ.
Holding you and loving you.
To update you on where we are with our paperwork...the two marriage certificates we have been agonizing over finally arrived yesterday, with their apostilles!! YAY and WHEW!! Our second homestudy is scheduled for this coming Sunday August 21. And Daddy and I faxed more papers for their pre apostille check yesterday. We got all of those done with the help of some dear friends, Nate and Libby. You'll meet them too. You'll love them as much as we do. If all of those are ok- we just need our finalized homestudy and USCIS approval to gather the final papers for our dossier- and then off to Eastern Europe it will go. We are asking everyone to pray that USCIS approval goes QUICKLY and smoothly! We know that it's all in the hands of Jesus, so we will come as soon and right when He says it's time. We just pray it's sooner than later. :)
It's 5:32pm where you are right now. Maybe you're getting ready to eat supper? I wonder what you are having? Have you ever had birthday cake before? I see Scratch cupcakes in your very near future. They are delicious, almost as delicious as you. I'll write more to you very soon. Know that we think about you and pray for you non stop.
To the moon and back-
Mommy, Daddy, Big Brother A, Monster, and Two
