a sweet day...

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

When we called our adoption agency yesterday, we discovered that the USCIS had sent them our original I-800A approval and that we, indeed, had the copy. Fortunately, our adoption agency isn't too far away from the Secretary of State's office, so we were able to pick up the original (which they notarized for us) and then take it to get certified at the Secretary of State's office. It is now in the mail, on it's way to the courier in Illinois so that it can be authenticated at the Chinese consulate.


David's parents, sister and two of her children were able to meet us for lunch while we were in Denver. Because of Grace's illness, we haven't been able to see them much this summer, so that was really nice.

Double Sweet!

And finally, we decided to visit Hammond's Candy Factory while we were in Denver. I'll give you one guess as to who was over-the-top excited about that!

Seriously Sweet!

(If you guessed Grace, you would definitely be correct!!
~although all of the kids really had a great time~)

It was a particularly sweet day, since it was really our first time out and about since Grace's illness. She has now gone over a week without any serious stomach trouble (just some little stomach cramps, and even those are much fewer and farther between). Thank you, Jesus, that our little girl could truly enjoy this sweet day!

Oh, I just love the colorful SWEET candy pictures. :) And I am even more glad that you were able to spend a fun day with your family, and I am over the top ECSTATIC that you got your last piece of paperwork apostilled and certified and whatever else it needed on it. :) Yipppeee.
