The Room is Almost Ready!

We still need curtains and blankets.  We are using under the bed storage for their clothes.  There is no room for a dresser!  Eventually they will have their own room, so there will be plenty of space.  For now, keeping them together will probably be more comforting.  Ashley wants to buy letters to spell their names and hang them above their beds.  We are going to do this after we find out if they want to use their Bulgarian names or their new American names.  Ashley already has picked out curtains.  We are ordering one pink and brown striped panel for Emery's side and one blue and brown striped panel for Blake's side.  Great idea - I think it will look cute!  Now that the room is almost finished, I need to focus on buying what we need for our first trip!

I800 Approved!!!!!

Our caseworker called this morning to tell us our I800 has been approved!  We should receive our letter by next Wednesday.  Once we have the letter notarized and apostilled, it will be sent to our adoption agency and then on to Bulgaria.  This is our last document needed to complete our dossier.  Our caseworker said we should have our travel dates in 3 to 4 weeks!  I was at Target shopping for toys to take on our trip when I got the call.  We will meet our kids for the first time in 5 or 6 weeks - so exciting!
