Quick Update

Hey all. We made our appointments for our Homestudy. They will all be done on the 18th. Then our worker will write it up (hopefully quickly) and we can file our I-800a. This is the document that has been taking quite some time for USCIS to process, so it could be a long wait for that. I love that they are "centralizing" this to increase efficiency. It only took us a few weeks to get this clearance last time. Now it is taking between 3-5 months. Very efficient :)

While we are waiting. . .

I am moving ahead with the Pampered Chef fundraiser. Another adoptive mom has agreed to donate her commission from our sale to our fund. She will write the check out directly to our agency. Her commission is at least 20% and could be more depending on her total sales for the month.

There are two ways to order. You can go directly to her site, browse, and place your order. I also have hard copy booklets and order forms. Items will be shipped to me, unless you specify to ship them elsewhere - so if you're "from away" please don't hesitate to order, just have the items shipped to your address instead of mine :)

If you are interested in ordering, just click on the link on the top right hand side of the blog. Thank you!

Hey Kristy!
I've been lurking here at your blog so far and it's been fun getting to "know" you a bit. I'm so excited for your second adoption adventure and would like to be included in the Pampered Chef fundraiser. Would you send me an evite?
By the way, in case you can't figure out who I am, I am Nancy and Dennis' niece (Sue's oldest daughter).
Best wishes! Tracy

Kristy, I don't know if you remember me but I am Nicole's mother-in-law (Joe's mom). My name is Anna. I follow her blog and look at yours thru hers. We were up in Maine for the baptism and I remember you and your husband and Maddie and Myles because Noah had so much fun rolling down the hill and playing with them at her mom and dad's house. I even did a scrapbook page on it! Anyway, I would like to order from your papmered chef party. My e-mail address is for the evite. And good luck with the adoption.
