We got the call today that our Travel Approval has arrived. We had to give some possible dates to our agency to request our consulate appointment. As soon as we get a confirmation on that date we can book our flights and hotels. We have had a hard time the last few weeks because we know Courtney is very small because of her open palate and the quicker we get her home the faster we can get it repaired and get her weight to a healthier number. I am so excited and so is her daddy. Thanks to everyone who expressed their excitement today, it means so much to us.

New Pictures!!!!

We got an update and new pictures of our youngest today. She is just precious but apparently the orphanage still feels the need to keep her hair chopped off. She is 33 inches tall but only 21 pounds. She has 17 teeth and is potty trained!!!! Her palete had not been repaired so that will be a priority when we get home and hopefully that will help her gain weight as well. She is still taking a bottle which I have heard is common with the unrepaired palete. Everytime I look at these pictures and all the others we have I fall more and more in love with this child.
