7 Quick Takes, a day late


Yes, I know it's a day late.  Sorry.  It's been a bit crazy over here - without going into too much detail, we've had some more illness and it's taken over pretty much every single waking moment of my life.  Sorry!!


We do have SOME good updates.  Like this email we got earlier this week:  
Dear Applicant/Petitioner:

USCIS application/petition has been received and routed to the National Benefit Center for processing. Within 7 - 10 days by standard mail you will receive your official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) with your Receipt Number ************. If you have any questions please contact the Hague Unit at (877) 424-8374 or NBC.HAGUE@DHS.GOV



In another good update, our dossier is completely compiled and our agency has sent it to the agency in Peter's country.    I'm hopeful we will get our USCIS approval within the next month (it seems to be running about 2 weeks from the fingerprinting date right now!) and then our dossier can go to the government in his country.  Fingers crossed! Our agency here is cautiously optimistic about things moving quickly, so we are trying to be the same!


Bidding Malcolm Home has begun!!  Go here to check out the awesome items that are up for grabs!!   Hurry up, though, because bidding ends tomorrow.



Look at Megan!  She's so cute!  Her region had been closed down for awhile, but it has re-opened, and children are available from there again.  She's got nearly a full grant available to whomever steps forward to adopt her.  Could that be you?!?!


Meet Justin.

Justin's forever family is doing a really cool event for the month of June (Justin's birth month)  over on their blog.  It doesn't involve any fundraising - but a lot of praying!   Go check it out - I love the idea and will probably be stealing it in the future (sorry, Megan! haha)


Meet Lawrence.  He's already in an adult institution, but is only 6 years old.   He's got a huge grant available to his forever family.   Could you help get the word out about him?  He needs a home! 

Alright, folks, that's it for today!   Hopefully I'll be able to get back into the blogging routine in a few days!!  :-)  Thanks to Jen, for hosting!
