Busy week!!!

This has been a very busy week!! First, we have spent time every day with Angie, a wonderful Godly woman who will bless us by taking care of Emma when I have to go back to work in just over a week. She suggested we leave Emma there some this week so she could see that we come back for her. Well, we did do this, and Emma did better than what we expected. I know it will still be a transition for her, but she will do fine. Everyone is praying for it!!

Then, on Tuesday, we met friends at Chuck E Cheese. We got to spend time with Karina, who is just over a year old, and from Guatemala, her mom, Marcie, and siblings, plus another good friend, Lori, that we have made through other friends who were adopting. We have pictures to post, but I am having trouble with my camera downloading. Hopefully, I can get it figured out, and can get it done soon.

Last, but definitely not least, Wednesday we received Emma's Certificate of Citizenship. It came on White House stationery, and was signed by the President of the United States. It states that Emma is a United States Citizen as of August 22, the date that we returned from China to the United States.

We leave tomorrow afternoon for a week of vacation in Orlando, FL. We hope to get to Disney, MGM, Epcot and the Animal Kingdom, with a water park thrown in there somewhere.

Then on Monday, Oct. 8, Emma goes to Dr. Carson at Johns Hopkins to have her tethered cord evalauation done to determine when we need to have her surgery. Pray that all goes well with the appointment, and that her surgery can be done sometime after the first of the year, when hopefully, it will be less of a trauma because she will have been with us longer.

Oh, I almost forgot...Emma had her first haircut today!! We just had it shaped up a bit, and did her bangs so they don't hang down in her eyes with no hairbow. She looks adorable!!
