Happy Birthday Max!!!!!!

Today is our sweet little boy's third birthday! We were hoping to be with him for this special day, but we know the nannies at the babies' home are showering him with attention! We've decided to save Max's birthday party until we bring him home. That way he can have a blast opening all his gifts!

Can't wait to get our little man home. Six weeks and counting!!!!!!!!!

Well, I know its been forever since we've posted, but its just been months and months of waiting "patiently"!! All the prayers and all the waiting, and now here we are! Our final Thai documents came in the mail today, and we turned around and sent them on to the Immigration office an hour later. Its been taking the U.S. government about three weeks to the day to approve I-800's. If we're lucky and they take a little less time with ours, then we'll be traveling for the October 6th board meeting, if not....then we'll have to wait a little and travel for the October 20th board meeting. We'll need to leave for Thailand one week before the board meeting is scheduled, so even if we aren't able to attend a meeting until the 20th....we'll still be leaving in about six weeks! Holy cow!! After almost two years of waiting....we're down to just 4-6 weeks!!! I still can't quite believe it!

We'll be blogging lots now, as we get everything ready for bringing Max home. At some point soon, we'll need to make the blog "private" so that we can post pictures of Max, and still follow Thai rules. We'll likely just assign everyone the same password and login name. That way we can just email it out and that'll just make it easier.

Thank you all for your prayers and awesome support through our journey. Now comes the fun part!!!!
