797C (or the new 171H) is here!

Today we received our 797C or Notice of Favorable Determination of Suitability to Adopt a Child from A Country that is party to the Hague Treaty.. it is almost surreal! Of course I spent most of today sick as a dog.. with some sort of throat thing.. and almost even forgot to get the mail... but I had been forewarned by our nice USCIS Case Officer.. that it was on the way!! So we are now only a few steps short of our goal. 2 docs to one county - state cert and then Chinese Consulate. We could be DTC before the end of June.

Still trying to wrestle with how to have a garage sale.. how do people do that? Or do I just hire someone to come and look at my, pardon the expression, cr@p and pay them something to do it.... I would still probably come out ahead... and it would empty the basement and garage which NEEDS to happen. This has to be the year we sell and move. Anyway - I am not feeling well enough to do a full update right now.. we are all well and happy - anxious about traveling.. and worried about the state of the economy.. but we are prepared to welcome our new little one and I just can't wait to wrap my arms around her.
