One step closer

We are one step closer to our daughter(s). We sent off the paperwork to the United States Immigration last Friday and received our receipt today in the mail. They got it on the 23rd so it will be about 60 days until we receive our I171H approval for the kids. After that we can send our dossier in to get certified and then authenticated. After that it goes to Ethiopia. We were told we should receive our referral about 6 to 9 months after that time. I hope it's closer to 6 than 9. And then we have to wait for a court date and pass. After that it will be travel time. So it is looking more and more like next year before we can bring the kids home. I really wanted to bring them home the end of this year so I would have the time to stay home with them a little longer before having to return to work.

I will post more later.

PS I need some help coming up with Mylie's middle name. We had originally chose Jaide but we are going to name our second daughter Jaidyn Emmory. So I have been trying to come up with a middle name for Mylie. We are trying to adopt an infant girl and a toddler about 18 mo to 2 years. Wish us luck.

Hum, that is hard. Mainly cause I think the middle name we chose is wonderful! ha
I had wanted Mystique for her middle name, but was over ruled on that. Since I love Camille we all agreed with that.

Let me know what you decide.

I've been reading your blogs for a while now - I love watching families coming together! And I love names - and so I've been thinking about this one for a while before I made a suggestion. Lots of names came to mind - but I kept coming back to Hope. Mylie Hope - since you have been hoping and waiting for a daughter for a long time! Looking forward to what you decide on! And looking forward to seeing her picture - we have friends here who have also adopted both from China and Ethiopia - a wonderful family with lots of happy kids! Fiona in WI
