New Update!

We were thrilled to get an update from Biejing today!  There was a short letter from Aaron's foster mom and 6 new pictures! He is really growing! Below you can see the new pics of the little cutie!
Anyway, I wanted to give an update on where we are at right now in the whole process.  As of right now, we are waiting for a coveted letter from China.  We are hoping and praying to get this letter towards the middle or end of this month (pray for asap!).  Our agency estimates us flying to China about 3 months from the time we get this letter.  As soon as we get the letter, we then send in about 11 pages of paperwork to United States Immigration Services (and we have these papers filled out and ready to go!).  After we get word back from immigration we will start looking towards travel! Yeah!!
About 3 weeks ago we sent a really neat book to Aaron.  My grandma and mom found this book that recorded our voices reading the book to him, so he gets to hear our voices!  Ryan and I each read a page, and then each of the kids read a page, and then we read one page all together.  So, he should have received the book by now, but they didn't mention it in the letter... Ryan and I laugh and wonder if the "talking book" is driving them crazy with our voices going off everytime the book is opened! They may have hid it!
Anyway, we really appreciate all of your prayers and support.  In the letter from Aaron's foster mom, she said that their family is going to be traveling back to the United States for a few weeks.  While they are gone Aaron will be at Ping An Foster Home.  Please keep him in your prayers as his life begins to go through so many changes.  We are praying that God surrounds him in His love and wraps His everloving arms around our boy until we can have him in our arms.
