This week we had a few events. The biggest one was that we received our PA (Pre-Approval) from CCAA (China Center for Adoption Affairs) which means we can proceed with submitting our paperwork for Kassidy so they can make a final decision. We estimate that we should be done with our paperwork by the end of August. We could be traveling anywhere from October to December of this year. We cannot post any pictures or information on the web but if you ask us we'll show you the three pictures we have. We also received our appointment to get our fingerprints taken at Immigration/Homeland Security. We had them taken for Kristy's adoption as well but we have to do it again because, in case you don't know, they do change (eyes rolling).
In case you haven't been in our house we have 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Right now Kelly has her own room and Kourtney and Kristy have bunk beds in the other room. Kourtney thought sharing a room with a 2 year old would be a good idea at the time. Kelly had more fore thought. So what do we do now that a fourth daughter will be moving in? Two teenagers with bunks in a room and two little ones in bunk beds in the other room? Well that's half right. Kristy and Kassidy will share one room in the bunk beds. The dining area we had with the two archway openings has been converted to a room now. One archway leading into the living room has been completely closed up and the other archway has been partially closed for a doorway. That will be Kourtney's room. Kristy will be by herself until Kassidy comes home.
This weekend was Kourtney and Kelly's dance recital. They did great! Kourtney was in two ballets and Kelly was in one of them. Kelly had a separate dance number (Eight Days a Week). Next year will even be busier as we will have 4 of them in dance. I know that was done for her father the Beatle fan! Video to be posted later.
