Then the attorney will apply for Meredith's passport and that usually takes a few hours, and Meredith will have one last doctor's appointment with an US embassy approved doctor. Once the Dr appt is over and the passport is picked up, everything must be translated back into English.
The final adoption decree, passport, and Dr report are submitted to the US Embassy and right now they are taking 6 working days to set the appointment. So we are really looking at the last week in March as our pick up date. There is a huge bankers convention in Guatemala March 18-21 so the embassy won't schedule any appointments those days.
Here is one of the very blurry pictures from this week's medical update.
Don't worry much better pictures will be posted very soon.

YES YES YES YES YES YES
We are officially out of PGN. Meredith is legally our's.
We don't have all the details yet, but they said we would be traveling in 6-8 weeks, although it should be much sooner.
I can't believe that this day has finally come.
Thanks to everyone for their support.
We did receive a medical update and very blurry pictures today, (I won't post those they are awful). Our Advocate is out this week, he traveled to Guatemala for a convention so the other advocate sent out the medical today. Meredith is 18.4lbs and 27 inches tall. What I could tell from the pictures her hair is growing back finally.
I asked about our PGN status and the response I got was :"As far as I know you are still in PGN it has been taking 8 weeks to get out."
Now before you all start filling up my comment box I know this is contradictory to everything we've been told to date and the fact that we just passed week 9 solidifies that the left hand is not talking to the right.
I will post any further updates I receive. Still hoping that this is our week to get out of PGN.

This weekend was girls weekend out. I flew to St. Louis and spent the weekend with Rebecca and Bethany. We had a wonderful time, shopping, eating, scrabble, eating, playing, oh and more eating.
Thank you very much Fred and Bethany for letting us invade your house for the weekend. Also thanks Bethany for showing me the business.
Today was a GREAT day for Rebecca. When she got home today she got "the call" from Philip and she is out of PGN as of today. YYYYIIIPPPPEEEE Rebecca. Hurry up and go get Zachary!!!
Todd and I are also hoping that this is our week to get out of PGN too, fingers crossed...

But everyone tells me that NO news is GOOD news where PGN is concerned.
On a down note, my friend Keely found out yesterday that she received a previo on Friday for something totally ridiculous. But thankfully she went right back in that day.
As for our weekly update, it was the same as it has been for 7 weeks. We are still in PGN waiting for approval.

The first picture is of my mom sitting in the rocking chair. The second picture is of me sitting in the same rocking chair, wearing my bibbed overalls, and yes that is a tobacco pipe in my mouth. I would say that I was 3 or 4 years old in that picture.
Also I've had several people ask for a sneek peek of the new and improved bathroom. Well I'm not done, but the walls are painted, next I'll move onto the trim. Todd and I went to Bed Bath & Beyond yesterday and we found the shower curtain and rugs we like. So if anyone has those great Bed Bath & Beyond coupons they aren't using please send them my way.

One good thing did come out of this weeks updates. Rebecca is indeed on the directors desk and she "should" get out sometime in the coming week. YYYIIIPPPPEEE!!!!! Zachary will be coming home. He's a cutie and we've already decided that he and Meredith are to be married when they are old enough. I think we agreed that 30 was old enough hehehehe. We caught them holding hands when we were down in Guatemala.
I have added links to their newly formed blogs in the sidebar to the right.
