Medical update plus new pictures

27 days and counting!!!!!! Todd and I are getting really excited.

Today was medical update and picture day yiippee!!!!

Meredith is now 12 1/2 pounds and 23 inches tall.

What's happening with the process???

I've been getting that question a lot so I thought I should explain to everyone what is going on right now.

As the last post states the DNA test has come back as a match which allows us to travel and visit Meredith. 31 days and counting. Our friend Rebecca will be down there too at that time so we are looking forward to meeting her in person.
The DNA test results from Lab Corp came in the mail on Wednesday, a copy was also sent to A Helping Hand. Once AHH gets their copy they will send it off to be authenticated and then it's off to the US Embassy in Guatemala. Once down in Guatemala the Embassy will issue a Pre-Approval for the adoption to enter PGN.

We are currently waiting on our Social Worker down there to complete her home study on the birth mom and foster mom. That report should be back in a few weeks if not sooner.

Guatemala here we come!!!!!!!!

I've just booked our flight and hotel reservations for our first visit trip.
I can't wait to get down there. I think the countdown said 34 days this morning!!!!

Now that everything is booked it's time to make sure we have everything we need for the trip.

We just received the results from the DNA test that was performed last week on Meredith and her birth mom. The results came back a match 99.99%

New information about Meredith

Good Labor Day everyone. Well summer is almost over and I must say that this summer has moved very quickly. I guess we have been pretty pre-occupied this year, I wonder with what???

One of my new friends that is also using our agency made a visit trip to Guatemala this weekend to see her son. In an effort to obtain information about Meredith and another families little guy, she asked our attorney if they would bring the babies over to the hotel for her to meet them and take pictures. And by a sheer miracle they granted her request. She spent over an hour with Meredith and Anthony plus their foster moms.

"She is beautiful Veronica. I held her and took lots of pictures with her. I got pics of all of the babies with each other...and with the foster mom and with me of course. Meredith was dressed so cute in one of the outfits that you sent down. Meredith w…
