We got new pictures of the Panda eating his birthday cake with his nannies and friends.  Very cute, but until I figure out how to blur out the faces of others for their privacy, I can't post them....  The cake was the most beautiful one I've ever seen.

We also heard from our agency that our I800 came back, although we haven't actually gotten it in the mail yet.  Good news!  Things are moving along well.  The packing lists are intimidating, though...  :)


  1. Maria,
    He is quite the blessing. I am so excited for you and your family. I am feeling bettr every day and go for my dr. appointment on Monday 9/12. Please let your dad know. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Your cousin

  2. Brenda! I'm so glad to hear from you! Glad you are doing better and better.

    Ahhhh, we are waiting for the next piece of paper that lines the road to adoption.... I expected it on Thursday and it isn't here yet..... patience....

  3. Look forward to following your travels to China! We aren't far behind you, we sent our I800 last week and plan/hope to travel in December! Our prayers are with you!!
