Beale Street

Beale Street

Did you think I had disappeared?  It sometimes felt like I did!  I have been in Memphis, TN for the last few days for work related events and I am super happy to be home.  I am always super happy to be home!   Memphis was good, we went to Beale Street a couple of times to eat and shop, had a few very good meals, but other than that, I felt like a permenant resident of the Holiday Inn.


Now the moment I have been waiting for…..WE RECIEVED OUR 171H WHEN I WAS GONE!!!!  Woo-hoo!!!!  Unfortunately I am going to have to eat my words when it comes to ripping the government a new one.   From fingerprinting to my mailbox, it only took then 3.5 weeks to process the 171H–the forecast was 6-8.  I must say, I am feeling a little satisfied with the ole government in this moment.  I am hoping to keep this optomistic attitude–at least for a couple of weeks.  So what does this mean?  It means that we have been approved to adopt one child from Colombia.  Some countries require that you must have this document before you can submit your dossier, Colombia is not one of those countries.  So while it was not holding us up, it is sure nice to know that nothing was lost, delayed, or my nubbie fingerprints were not good enough.  It is these moments where I can sit back and think to myself….life is goooood!
