I-800 and a video

I came home from work yesterday exhausted and grumpy. Checked my email one more time and was immediately revitalized by news that our I-800 has been approved! I was hoping for it to be approved next week or the week after, so to have something happen faster than expected for once was fabulous! One more step on the US side, which usually takes about two weeks, and then we can move on to the India side of things. According to our social worker, the India side has been taking about 4 months lately.

In celebration of our I-800, I thought I'd post a video of our little guy, taken by a wonderful family who travelled to get their daughter at the end of May. They took over a photo album of our family and a small blankie like the ones Max Rup carries around with him.

Oh my goodness -- I am crying at my computer watching him get his first present from his family. And the ayahs saying "Here's your mommy and daddy . . . sister, brother." What a great thing to have that on video.
A great big hug from

This is a precious video clip!! What a blessing to see his big smile when the ayahs show him the pictures of his mommy, daddy, sister and brother. Thanks for sharing.

Kristy,

The video is so sweet, the tears are starting here. These videos are always priceless but I always wish they could go on and on. Soon he will be in your arms though.
