How much paperwork can one 2 year old take?? I'm back on the mad woman pace. Trying to get all our documents ready for the dossier is exhausting. We have almost everything we need for the USCIS except the completed homestudy which we are hoping to get just after July 4th. Ideally, I'd like to have our dossier to China by the end of July, but that might be a bit too hopeful. Michelle and Eric are going to be our guardians and wrote up a really nice care and nurture plan. They are really awesome. I wish they could adopt with us. They are going to make some child really happy.

I've been trying not to buy too much stuff for Julia, but it really is hard!!! I'm sure she hasn't had too many new things of her own and so I feel like I want her to feel special with a few new things. Anna wasn't too hard on her clothes, so there are alot of things that Anna wore that Julia will be able to wear. I still have a hard time calling her Julia. She seems more like a Yin to me. I can't wait to hear what her foster mom calls her. I'm thinking that I'd like to get the foster mom a really cool locket or necklace with 2 intertwined hearts. JC Penney's has a few at their website that I think are pretty cool. I'm also thinking that I'd like to get her a Ludington sweatshirt. I dunno, I think it would be cool to have something like that. But...I'd also like to go COO (carry on only). I might be a little too optamistic on that. :-)

OK..need to work on laundry...I'll be back later. Oh and Aunt Cheryl, thanks for all the stuff you did for the kids. They both got up Tuesday and asked, "What are we doing with Aunt Cheryl today?" I told them you had to head home, they said, "That's ok, we are going to Florida in a new months!!!" Kids are great! Love you both!! Bye!
