Melt my heart...

I was driving with Xander today, and out of the blue he exclaimed, "Mommy, I'm so happy!" I said, "Good!! Why are you so happy?" He replied, "Be-be-because (he stutters-- so cute!) we're going to adopt Lexi, and then she will have a family and be so happy like me!"

We love that little guy! (:

By the way, Parker found TWO ladybugs on Saturday!! What do you think followed in the mail?? Our I797-- the last document needed for our adoption--- WOO-HOO! Today I dropped all of our documents off at the State Capitol for certification. The next step is to have them authenticated in DC by the Department of State and the Chinese Embassy. Then they will be sent to our agency for review and translation, and finally off to China. What does that all mean?? We're still on target to get our Alexis around November. (:(:(:



  1. Yippppeeeee!!!! Great news!

    And Xander stutters? Awh. You know that most likely he will outgrow it, right?

    Is that good news or bad news for you, Christianne? lol

  2. Ummmm, hello 2 LADYBUGS!!! Call me...we need to talk! H

  3. Two lady bugs and a 797 - very very cool - and another Thanksgiving in China? Seems to me that would have been the Gracie trip if memory serves....

    May I say HOORAH?

    love you guys - and hugs -

    aus and co.

  4. I saw a ladybug the same day!I was going to text you and ask if anything had happened. Very exciting. the side bar descriptions for each of the kids!
