One Piece of Paper...
One piece of paper is all we need to have our dossier complete. Brandon had his fingerprinting done on Wednesday,DCFS has issued our endorsement letter,so now it is just a waiting game for one piece of paper from immigration. Once I send that to our adoption agency it gets processed along with the rest and about two weeks after that,it will be on it's way to China. I will be doing a happy dance on that day!!
I am able to send her something for Christmas but it must fit in a gallon Ziploc bag. I am not sure what to send. I do not think that they tell the children they are being adopted until the paperwork has been accepted. Which makes me wonder if she will get it at all or if it will be more like a donation to the orphanage. I have this musical Classic Pooh that I bought many years ago when I planning on an infant. I remember writing in my journal to her about wanting it to be the first thing I give her. I would like to send it but again I am afraid it will not be given to her. Chuck had a great idea to get another one and send one to her and have the other one on her bed when she gets here. Do you think I can find another identical Pooh? Of course not. I bought it at Target in the baby section but they don't carry it any longer. I am going to keep checking ebay. If anyone has any ideas or any knowledge of how things go, as far as when a child at the orphanage receives a gift, please leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you
