Update on the Laila adoption front:

We fingerprinted in Birmingham on Wednesday!!! We expect Supplement 3 approval Monday or Tuesday so we are making some progress!! Wahoo!!!!

If all goes well, we will be dossier to China by May 20th at the latest!!

And if the trend we are seeing on thal expedites continues, we could end up traveling as soon as July!!!  That's only 2 1/2 months away!!!  That's exciting and overwhelming all at the same time!!  That means in only 2 1/2 months we will need to raise her orphanage donation of $5800 and hopefully find grants to cover the additional $5000 we will be short.

SO, I thought I'd see if anyone is interested in our fundraiser that will run the next 1 1/2 months-

This idea is a simple one that anyone can do- designate a jar in your house for your loose change & fill it over the next month and a half to help change Laila's world forever!!  No matter where you live you can participate in this, and for those that live in Oklahoma, we will gratefully pick it up in late June when we come home for a visit and some scheduled photography sessions.

I even have adorable Chinese takeout containers I will mail to anyone who wants to get in the China spirit!!  And don't worry, no food was in them. ;)


Thanks for stopping by,
Fannie, Matt, Kate, Chengbin, & Laila Jean
