It is killing me. This wait. Seriously- we are waiting on one document that is being authenticated right now in this building. The Chinese Consulate of Houston. If it weren't such a long drive, I would be in my car right now driving down to beg for our document.
Once that is in our hands, our dossier can finally go to China.
The steps after that are both clear and unclear to me. This process is so different then when we adopted this little peanut
We will get our Log In Date and then within a couple of months, we should get our official approval from China. Then we can share our little honey with the world!
And then hopefully soon after (after many steps that I am a little clueless about), our travel approval and then we go to China!
We are taking everyone with us.
We may be crazy.
In fact, we are.
But we cannot imagine not bringing all three with us this time. And they are SO excited about it. I am already praying about it. And thinking of running away.
But I am also thinking about our sweet Lauren Grace. She has been woven into our hearts and our life. I cannot WAIT to tell her story to you, and share truly, how God has showed us that she is a Markmiller.
She is in an amazing place. She is loved. She is growing and developing. We can see in all her photos that she is full of sunshine. And has a funny personality. And loves to eat treats. And is clever.
And we cannot believe that we have the absolute joy of being her family.
