So close I can almost smell the borsch!

I just got a call from the wonderful USCIS officer who is in charge of our file. She said she should get our fingerprints in by later today and will pull our file and process it.  That means we could have our approval as soon as a week (I hope)!!  We need to wrap things up - just a few forms left!

I had a dream about Darya last night.  I can't wait until she is here in real life as my daughter!  **sigh**  We'll be working on her bedroom soon.  I think that will help pass the time after we ship our dossier.  Plus, I've never painted a wall pink before. I'm pretty masculine in my decorating (blues, greens, browns) but we decided to go girly with her room!

On another not so happy note, I found out yesterday that one of my brothers is in the hospital.  On the 4th, he had an accident and now has 3rd degree burns on one side of his face, his arms, torso, and legs.  I will hopefully hear more updates as my mom visits him in the hospital today. He is in CA and I'm in FL so unfortunately I can't visit him. But I can pray for him!  Little Nate prayed for him at breakfast this morning. Then afterward asked if Uncle Jay went flying from the explosion (I think he had Kung Fu Panda in mind)! lol!  I'll have to ask my brother :-)


  1. Yay on the paperwork and fingerprints....boo on the accident your brother had!! I don't suppose he was playing around with some illegal fireworks?? I hope he is okay. Is he anywhere near me? Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you out here.

  2. Thanks Denise! He's in northern CA. I'm hoping for an update later today.

  3. This is great news Marianne!! Let's talk again soon about a shower date :-). Again, I am really sorry about Jay. I will keep him in my prayers.
