GREAT NEWS! ICING ON THE CAKE!
Well first and foremost we got our approval from the US Consulate to bring Aiden home to the US today. It was really emotional being at the Consulate in China with about 28 other American families who adopted little ones. We took our oath and got our big brown envelope that we can't open and that will get Aiden into the US. Once we set foot in Detroit he will be a US citizen! We couldn't take pictures in there so this was the outside of the building!
NOW for the big big news! Chad made his rank he has been studying really hard and working hard. He had me check on my iphone for him. He is just so excited. He said this is the icing on the cake! Can't wait to be home soon. Thanks to all my adoptive friends and family, friends who have followed our journey. It has been so wonderful to have your support.
I will write more later. We leave at 5PM US time tomorrow and don't get home until 8PM Friday! Bon Voyage!
