A few more pictures from Kaelebs Mom!

Thanks to Connie and her husband I was able to get some more pictures of Aiden. I feel so blessed. I know I am so lucky to be able to have gotten these - thank you! She told me he seems quiet. I can't wait to bring him home to show him some love. Thank you Connie, these pictures mean alot. Connie also told me his nickname is " Gang Gang" pronounced like gong gong. Check out Connies blog - it is "Kaelebs Blog" on the right hand side of my blog. These pictures make me more anxious to go and get him. We finally got our LID which is March 18th. I hope time goes fast and a miracle happens with our wait.

I got this from a lady who visited in 2007! Thank you so much Mary! Aiden is the second little guy in the crib. He has his finger in his mouth.

These pictures are such a blessing. I sent cameras through and just received the pictures back. Over 40~ It shows that the nannies really care by taking these pictures and then sending them back. I can't thank them enough. Some of these pictures have the blanket I sent him, the cake I ordered for the nannies and the picture book we sent him. It shows him carrying these things around. So special.

I am going to put them in a slideshow eventually but my computer isn't working right now so I have to do it like this.

First time seeing Chad in 2 months!

Had to share this picture of Chad he sent to me. It was great to see him today, we haven't seen him in 2 months! Taylor is all excited we just got web cams set up so we are hoping he can get connection in Iraq. She misses her dad. She is constantly saying, "I hope dad comes home early... or I miss dad". This is one of the first deployments were she has been stating her feelings. She is doing so well though. She is very independent for a 5 year old.

FINALLY! My paperwork is done and sent!

Hopefully by Friday my dossier should be in China. For those of you who do not know what a dossier is, it has about 13 pieces of paper that need 3 different seals on them, from a notary, secretary of state and then to the appropriate Embassy's. I wanted to pull my hair out from the paperwork. Hopefully I will be DTC soon.
