Pressley and Seth have been best friends since they were 2 years old. Seth moved away 3 years ago, but they are still best friends!

Life. That's what we've been doing around here. I have been a terrible blogger, but I don't have much to report on the adoption end. And with us, well, we wake up, school, homework, softball, dance, Karate, supper, and bed. Our wait for Cai is quite painful right now. While I know we are so close, she feels so far away most of the time. I realize we could be 3 short weeks away from her, but it could be longer. Unknowns are hard. I try every day to enjoy the present and every part of this day, but truthfully, I want to be on a plane to Ch*na. I want her to be a part of our every day life, despite how mundane it may seem at the present! Our Article 5 should be picked up at the consulate in less than a week and then we just wait for Travel Approval (TA), usually 2- 4 weeks, and then we can book our flights!

I know what you mean about the waiting! We are on day 12 of our LOA wait. I too try to remember to love each day without SJ because one day it will not be just EK and the big girls- everything will change and be different. So I am content right now to be where I am and know I have BIG blessings coming. So great to hear from you today and I LOVED all your pics!

As the time draws closer all of this waiting seems more difficult! When I was pregnant with the boys I could not even watch a pampers commercial! And if you put on a Hallmark commercial forget it! Well, that is where I am at right now!
(My poor husband!)
You are almost there!!!!!!!I can not wait to see Cai in your arms!
