FBI fingerprints

Our FBI fingerprints are being processed and will be sent out no later that tomorrow! This is a miracle considering last week they told us it could take up to 4 more weeks. I am thrilled! So we are getting the package ready to send our USCIS out, and hopefully that will come back quicker than expected too. YAY!

Art-y Quilts For Sale!

My wonderful mother and Aunt Peggy have been working so hard to be crafty! They have made several beautiful Art-y quilts that we will be selling/auctioning off to raise money for Artem. They are "biscuit" quilts and they are beautiful. I only have four right now. If you are interested or know anyone who is interested let me know. Lets raise some money to get him home.

We had our first home visit today with our social worker. It was wonderful. She is fabulous and I really feel like she is going to do her best to help us along in the process. Keep your fingers crossed that we will be homestudy ready in a few weeks!
