No news is NOT good news

Still nothing. We did get more pictures of her with the care package. I have a picture of her looking at a picture of us. It's sweet, but sad. Mommy and Daddy and big brother are all together and our baby is halfway around the world without us. Going by current estimates, it's going to be the end of February/beginning of March before we go. She'll be 8 months old, same age Dylan was when we got him. We really wanted her to be younger. He was crawling when we got him, and walked a week after coming home. I don't want to miss those firsts with Maddie, too.

Happy half-year birthday baby! Mommy and Daddy love you more than you'll ever know.

Oh, Steph, I'm so, so sorry about the long wait. I know what a wait of 4 1/2 months feels like, but I can only imagine dealing with the I-600 change issue.

I'm glad you're getting updated photos. I'd love to see them if you have time to email them to me. Sending up prayers that your wait will be over very quickly, and that you'll have Maddie in your arms.

Big hugs from Petunia and me!

I know how you feel. Our litle girl is turning 1 year old in two weeks and we still aren't with her.
It's very hard to miss all of those milestones!
