Sign Language Lessons from a 4 year old.


Well apparently my four year old son. has taken all this sign language business rather seriously. He is the self appointed sign language instructor of the family. Everytime I talk to him he has insisted in speaking to me with as many signs as possible. I never thought he would work the signs for Diaper, Monkey, and Juice all in the same sentence. To date, my four year old has taught me more signs that I can repeat in mixed company than my sister, the interpretor.

I did confirm that the consulate appointment is the last thing you do in China which should get us there a week or so AHEAD of whatever CA appoinment we get. But I did find out that the family that appears to moving so quickly is doing so because they had had a failed referral...long story...so they have been expedited. That being said, Im still holding out hope that we will be moving along at a nice pace...and looking forward to the next milestone due this week... the PA. Cross your fingers for PA by August 28.

Thought that since this is August 24 it would be appropriate to post this photo. Above is a photo of my oldest son - 3 in the picture - now 6 years old with our official adoption application. It was mailed THREE years ago yesterday- August 23, 2005. Now three years later we hope to be wrapping up the end of the wait.
