Our orphan petition approval letter also came this week.
Things are definitely coming together and hopefully we will get a fall travel date.

It is hard to tell from the photo's that there are fairies sitting on the trees.

We have been working on Angie's room, painting and decorating. Gavin picked the colors purple and pink for the walls. The room had a Dr. Seuss theme before so we kept a few of the same elements but made them girly! I still need to order some fairy wall stickers and it should be done. (Gee I really hope Angie is a girly girl)
Hopefully I will be able to post some before and after pictures soon.

Our Agency should be getting everything Apostled this week (we hope they do it tomorrow). Then they should overnight it to us so that we can send it off for translation! Then I can worry about getting Angie's room ready and getting her clothes without monster trucks on them.
We signed with our Home study agency on April 20th. Everything has been going so fast which is great. Hopefully we can get a travel date in early fall. I would love end of Sept to mid Oct. that way I can get my boys settled in to school and we will be back in time for holiday stuff. I am so excited to go get Angie and at the same time my heart hurts about leaving my boys for that long.

I stumbled onto Reece's Rainbow and I found this sweet little one, but another family was already committed to bringing her home. I thought if she was available I would snatch her up in a minute.
Then I remembered another great website Until all have homes and went searching. Found another sweet little girl showed her to my husband who was on the fence about International adoption. We both decided that the timing was not right and we would wait to summer time and look into Bulgaria and start the home study. Cause we figured there was no way she would still be available.
Well by springtime I was getting antsy and started looking at photo listings. I looked at Reece's Rainbow and to my surprise Angie was available and my husband was hooked. So all was great, then we remembered the sweety on Until all have homes that we both fell in love with. I of course had to check and not only was she still available........SHE WAS ANGIE!!!
We fell in love with the same little girl on 2 different photo listings!! So to us Angie was always meant to be our daughter and we are working on bringing her home.
Here is the other photo:
