Our little guy has spent a lot of time in the hospital which is so hard on my Mama heart. (To think of him alone.) So thankful for God's reminder that he loves our son even more than we do and is taking care of him.
The second picture was taken Tuesday!!! Isn't he the sweetest?!

Happy 9th birthday to our sweet Molly! I can't believe she's nine! So thankful for this girl! Thankful that her birth mom chose life for her and thankful that God brought her into our family. We love you, Molly!!
We've had a fun day celebrating Molly! Birthday brunch, presents, ice cream sundaes, and a sleepover at Nana's! Id say Molly has had a great day! (And a great night. She just texted me this picture of her eating ice cream at Nana's house at 9pm!)

Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt Marie came over today to celebrate the girls' birthdays which are both right around the corner. We had a great day with family and then the girls went shopping with their birthday money. Rayna got a little dollhouse and Molly got a new Lego set. The girls are excited about their upcoming birthdays!

Our dossier left for China today! This is a huge step in the process to bring Ethan home! For anyone who is curious about the further steps in our adoption, here's what's next:
*LID (dossier will be logged in)
*LOA (letter of acceptance)
* i800 (immigration approval specific for adopting ETHAN)
*GUZ # (case number with consulate)
*PDF/RTF (Letter from NVC)
*Art 5 P/U (Ethan's visa paperwork picked up from GZ and sent to BJ)
Our estimated time frame from this point is 2-6 months with the average being 4 months. So we could travel anytime between December-April. Our guess is February or March.
One step closer to bringing home our boy!!
