It is a good day...even with a nasty cold!

I have a nasty cold that just doesn't want to go away, but it is still a good day! Our 171 extension came in the mail today!!! Hip, Hip, Hooray!!! It took a few emails to USCIS, but it is here and one less thing to worry about. I attribute my cold to all the stress I was under last week!

Also, a family from my agency whose daughter is in the same orphanage and group as Vera had court today and everything went well. Plus, they get to keep their daughter during the 10 day wait!! Hip, Hip, Hooray!!! So, hopefully, that will also be the case for us.

7 days until we leave for Chicago...6 days until we leave for Russia...11 days until our court date!

I'm so happy that your plans are coming together so quickly! I will pray for a lightning-speed processing time so you can get home for Dani's wedding! :) This will be a Christmas you'll never forget!!!

Yea!! I will be praying a miracle happens and you can make it to your sisters wedding!! Every time I see Vera's picture I think we need to start another adoption. She is just SO beautiful I want to kiss her cheeks. What a great christmas gift!

YAYYYY!!!! Wonderful news! I suggest an IV of chicken soup and 5 naps a day until you leave (well, a person can dream, can't they?). Anyway, I hope you are feeling better soon! :)

I'm glad things are going so well, aside from the nasty cold! I highly recommend Emergen-C in the pink lemonade flavor. It tastes pretty good and it really helps me get over colds faster (although Andrew thinks it's all in my head!). I can't wait to read all about you bringing Vera home!
