Officially Pregnant (in the land of adoption)

We got our I-797 form today in the mail. Apparently, Rusty does not fully understand the magnitude of this form, as I had to call him to find out, but regardless, it is here and we have been approved to adopt a child by the US Government! YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!! On Friday, I am going to chase down the remaining items of our dossier (adoption paperwork) and our dossier will be done by Halloween, October the 31st and ready for translation! What timing...

In other news, we have a family that is scheduled to leave on Thursday for her little Kaz cutie and she is going to go and see our little man, Murat. With her she will be carrying a 'Yertle the Turtle' that I have asked her to give to Matt for him to hold on to until it can be replaced by his mama, papa and sister, Ellison! So we should have another update on our little guy by Thanksgiving!! Keep your fingers crossed...

Antiquities Photo Shoot Fundraiser

Our Antiquities Photo Shoot is set to take place on November 7th & 8th at Cannon United Methodist Church on Webb Gin House Road (at the intersection of Ronald Reagan Pkwy). We will be shooting from 8am to 8pm, and we would love for you and your child(ren) to participate!!!! The more people that we get to come out, the more money we will be awarded! All proceeds will all go directly towards our adoption of Murat! Please call or email me at your earliest convenience if you would like to participate or if you want more information! My cell phone # is 678-234-5463 and my email is WPAinfo@yahoo.com. Here is some more information about the shoot:
