The Papers Have Been Sent!!!

I just went to the mail and found a copy of our home study and a letter stating that our documents have been sent out, one to immigration and the other to Hong Kong. YAY!  We should hear from immigration within 30 days and may soon be matched with a child.  Not just any child but our son, Jedidiah!

Should Hear Soon!

We are waiting for a final signature from the home office reviewing our home study.  This is a very exciting step.  I did confirm that once the signature is in all of our paper work will be sent to Hong Kong.  This is our Hong Kong application.  They will then review everything and get back to the agency.  At this same time our home study will be sent to immigration.  If they approve us we will receive dates to be finger printed, AGAIN, for their clearances.  The really exciting news is that we may not have to wait to hear back from immigration(this takes approx.30 days) before we get matched with a child.  The agency said they will see what children are available that fit our criteria(have Down syndrome) and call us for a viewing of the file. 

I am ready to see our son!

New Design

I decided to change a few features about the blog today.  I'm sure you noticed.  Although I really liked the design with the black and white I felt that it wasn't real happy.  I want to come to this blog page and see something that makes me feel cheery.  I plan on making a few more changes once I figure out how to make it happen.  Until then I hope you enjoy the brightness of this color as much as I do.

Here's The Latest

I received the following e-mail from our social worker last week........

Hi Jamie,

I wanted you and Josh to know that your homestudy is moving along nicely through the review process. We are hopeful that all of the reviews will be completed by 7/11. I will keep you posted! Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Thank You.

End of Week Two

It has been two weeks since our homestudy was sent to Modesto for review.  If things are on track this means we should be hearing from the agency sometime next week.  I will keep you posted.
