Thailand approves!!!

Today was our Thai Adoption Board Meeting and it couldn't have gone any better!!  Ellie and Max were super well behaved and the ladies on the board that "interviewed" us were smitten with both of them.  They were all very interested to hear about Max and how he's been doing since leaving Bangkok three years ago.  We were more than happy to share all the awesomeness that is our boy :)

They asked us a few questions about Ellie, mostly about how she's been eating and sleeping and whether or not she and Max were getting along.  Then they told us we all four seemed like a great fit and wished us their best :)

It was painless, but also a great relief to have behind us, knowing we have the blessing of the Thai board and all the necessary paperwork to get her Visa on Monday!

One step closer to home!!!

It's hard work being so cute!  Ellie was out as soon as we got into the taxi!

We celebrated the day with McDonald's for lunch...Max was so excited!

Tomorrow we are heading to ride elephants!!!!  I'll hopefully have lots of pictures!!  One week until we head home!

I just caught up on your last several blog entries, since I got busy starting my new job. What great pictures! How wonderful to hear that Ellie is already taking steps forward in the bonding process. What an awesome family God has blessed you with! So happy for you all!
