As some of you may know, we’ve been trying to adopt for the past three years. It’s been such a rollercoaster ride. Our original country we choose to adopt from did not work out for us so we had to kind of start over at the beginning of 2015. Nothing from our original dossier would work for our China adoption. As far as the paperwork chase, we needed everything again, including re-approval of our i800a form, home study update, more training, original birth certificates and marriage licenses. You name it, we needed it. And it all paid off because we received our very first referral in August 2015. We had so many emotions running through us. Since this was our very first referral since the beginning of this journey, we obviously had a lot of questions. After all was said and done, we accepted our referral and began our next leg of the journey to bring baby Nguyen home. This leg of the journey seemed like it was taking forever! We still had to finish up our dossier and have everything apostilled and then stamped at the China Consulate here in Houston. Then we had to wait for our Article 5 to be issued and wait for Notice of Travel. All in all, we’ve waited about 8 months since our acceptance and we’re finally traveling to bring her home! Thank you all for your support and prayers! Please continue to pray for us as we fly to bring her home.
As some of you may already know and for those that don’t, we have exciting news. We’re in the process of adopting Baby Nguyen from The Republic of Moldova. We are currently in the training process and after that is complete, we turn in our paper work to schedule the homestudy visit.
We’ve started blogging about our process here and while you’re there, be sure to read The Story of Us; it’s a tear jerker.
Now that you’ve been able to absorb the great news, can you please help us bring Baby Nguyen home? Our first efforts for fundraising will be through this Raffle we’ve set up. Every two weeks, we’ll have something new for you to bid on.
Thank you again for your support!
