Alexsey Here We Come!

What a birthday present for my Hubby John! We got the call! We heard more news than was even expected! Not only was our paperwork submitted, but we also got a travel date! We have to be in country on July 15!

However.........

they did not like one word on our medical and so we have to redo it. If we get it to them ASAP, they will move up our travel date!

Hopefully, I can get it done today or tomorrow!

Tina in CT said...

Happy birthday to John! What a wonderful birthday gift for him (all the rest of you).

You'd better get the suitcases out and also start preparing some meals for the freezer. Is someone coming to the house to stay with the kids or are they going to different family members and friends?

So happy for you with your news.

Jill said...

OH YEAH BABY!!!!

Now, can I say this? ONE WORD ON THE MEDICAL??? Oh brother!! I pray you can get it fixed up without too much work and get it back ASAP!!

Get your bags packed!

BoufMom9 said...

WOW! Congrats!
I am just amazed at the speed they have finsihed everything off!
It took YEARS for me to finish the domestic adoptions for some of my kids, who were legally freed. (sad)

I am so happy for you and even happier for your new little boy!
