(a little bit of this and a little bit of that)

As many of you know, I am currently STILL suffering from issues with our Internet/computer. I had to finally break down and take my notebook in to the geek guy for some repairs and a good cleaning...and we are finally getting a technician out here to check on our Internet connection. Still not sure where the problems are at, but I so need to get these issues taken care of and get myself back online...get a chance to post some new photos of the girls...and also get myself caught up on all my family & friends postings.

As for us, we are still paper chasing for our Benjamin. Things have been crazy lately here. We have paper work waiting to be authenticated through the NYC Chinese Consulate, we are also waiting for our fingerprint appointment through USCIS, and we are currently waiting on some of our paper work to be stamped the the US State's office here in Washington DC. The girls are getting very excited over the thought of their brother finally being able to come home. Francesca must ask us at least once a day, "When is Benjamin James coming home?" With things the way they are and seeing how things are going...we truly do not have an answer for her, but we are staying positive that this will all work out in the end.

As for our Benjamin's fund raiser ~ we have been feeling the love pouring in. Seeing how we are still trying to get together some extra funds for his adoption, we are truly grateful for everything that everyone has been doing to help with this little boy coming home. We are also counting down the days for Benjamin's 2nd birthday, which will be on the 15th. Never having experienced one of my children's birthdays away from them - I am really struggling with this. But I know deep in my heart, our son will be home with us for his 3rd!

I also some exciting news to report, but I am going to save that for another post. Hope you all had a great weekend and here's to another fab week ahead!
