Today we received an update on our little Hayley Grace!  They say she is doing well, and her speech has improved a little since our last update in April.  You have no idea how badly I want to get on a plane and bring my baby home!

Yesterday, we received our LOA(Letter Of Acceptance) from China!  This is the paper we have been waiting for.  It basically says that they have officially been approved as Hayley's parents!  We needed this paper in order to get our Travel Approval.  There is a few steps of paper work in between now and then, but I will not bore you with all of that! :-)  At this point, my agency feels we will travel before the end of August. 

Our case worker agreed to request another update for us, so I am hopeful that by the end of next week, we will have new pictures!  I finally see an end in sight, and am beyond anxious to meet my daughter!  Even if she does scream at me!  :-)

God has been so good, and provided everything we have needed throughout this process.  As some of you may know, adoption is expensive.  Through fundraisers and some very generous souls, we have raised about $18,000, so far.   At this point, the remainder of the money that we need to raise, is for our travel expenses.  I have just been in awe!  We have the money exactly when we need it, and sometimes down to the penny!  There is no doubt that God wants Hayley Grace here!
