Sunshine on my shoulders countertop....

....makes me happy.

yellow daisies on the counter

Nothing like some sunny yellow daisies to bring a bit of cheer to my day.

You know what else makes me happy???

Finding out this morning that we are logged IN and OUT of the NVC, of course!!!!!!

If you're scratching your head in confusion, here is an explanation. This means that our adoption paperwork was received (logged in) and checked over by the NVC (National Visa Center) and then was sent to the US embassy in Seoul, South Korea (logged out).

Are you still with me?

Now we wait for the embassy to send a packet of paperwork (aka P3) to our Korean agency (ESWS). The length of time it takes for ESWS to complete the P3 is unknown and could take anywhere between a few weeks to a few months.

Let's all pray that we are blessed with the few weeks side of things.

So to sum this all up: We knocked down some big steps here in the US and now we wait some more as Korea does its thing!

Thanks for joining us on this journey.....it's a joy to have you along.

I hope you all have a sunshine filled day.
