Moving Along

Our summer here is flying by. Summer got off to a wet start in our neck of the woods and I can't believe it is almost August. Olivia is in Culture Camp all week and it is something she looks forward to all year. This is a camp started by adoptive families to bring children of multicultural families together to learn about their culture and spend time with other children who share their family situation. Each child has a schedule and they do arts and crafts, cooking, language(Olivia is taking Chinese hoping to help with her brother)and culture among other things. This camp is in it's 30th year, the cost is nominal and it is run by adoptive parents who volunteer their time.I feel so grateful that we live in a community where our children can be raised with such a large group of families just like ours. Next year I look forward to taking Matthew to the preschool program
I had communication Monday from the preparer that my birth certificate is on to step 2 of a three step process so we're getting there. Although the agency said it would not stall our paperwork i believe that we will not receive our LOSC until they have it so I am anxious to get it there.We were initially preparing for travel late August early September but now not so sure it will all happen in it's own time. We are looking forward to family gatherings and long family weekends as we head into August and just enjoying the outdoors I will keep in touch All the Best ___ Kate

I'm glad to hear that things are moving along with your birth certificate, although I'm sure it doesn't feel fast enough! Praying that they send your LOSC in the meanwhile, even without the birth certificate. Wouldn't that be a wonderful surprise?? I know the waiting for the LOSC was the hardest part for us, so hang in there!!
