Hello Mr. P

This morning I (Alyson) received an email from CCAI – Florida Office announcing that we have been assigned a social worker:

In a message dated 8/23/2005 10:07:18 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time, fl-postadopt@chinesechildren.org writes:

Alyson and Ford,Congratulations! You have been matched with a social worker. His name is Mr. P. His phone number is 904-XXX-XXXXand e-mail address is XXX. He should be contacting you soon so you can begin your home study! Please feel free to call us at 850-XXX-XXXX if you have any questions. Have a great day!

Chinese Children Adoption International - FL Office

The paper chase continues…. along with another step closer to our ultimate reward.
We both took the day off from work in order to go to Doctor’s appointments.I (Ford) had my follow-up Dr’s appointment this morning at 0800 and walked out with a great blood pressure reading and my signed, sealed, delivered physical exam form! Alyson had her initial Dr’s appointment this morning at 0900 and just needs to have her blood work done before we have her approved physical exam form as well.

We just finished mailing our Application for Advance Processing of Orphan Petition to the Jacksonville office including the check for $625. We look forward to receiving our fingerprinting date. In addition, we Express mailed our certified birth certificates for authentication to our respective P.R. of China Consulate General. Mine was sent to Chicago and Alyson sent hers to New York, each with a $25.00 dollar money order.

Received a quite long and moving email from the person Ford purchased a swan necklace for me for our 20th anniversary (more on that later; he presented it to me in Maine).
