Whew....what a day....

Well, we can check another fingerprinting session off the more crucial step closer to getting Molly home. Last night we had dinner at a friends new restaurant ( it was fabulous, by the way!) and spent the evening sorting clothes with our hero Vickie who was nice enough to volunteer to run our garage sale while the family drove to Birmingham. After sorting clothes until 11pm, we woke up at 4am to get everything out in the driveway and then hit the road by 6:30am so we could arrive at the appointment by 9am. We were in Birmingham for about 20 minutes, then we turned around and drove all the way home. When we got back Vickie had sold 75% of everything...we made a killing by the way! We took over and ended the garage sale about an hour and a half later. Now we have a nice little addition to our adoption fund as well as the two crucial stamps we needed to get on our fingerprint form in order to bring Ms. Molly back into the country. All we are waiting for now is the home study addendum to get processed through the INS and the Travel Authorization from China.

We wrapped up the evening at the camp site of the same friends who ran our garage sale and celebrated Jacks 5th birthday as well as their daughters 19th birthday.

Heading to glad this day is over...but not as glad as the poor woman who sold everything out of our garage from 5:30am until well after 11am.
