It was also the moon festival in China. We are still learning about all these traditions and festivals in China. So there wasn't much celebrating for us, but we read about it and learned about it. We can't wait to celebrate with Zoey next year!
As for the waiting.... We send our dossier last week, and are waiting for it to be sent. Hoping to hear from our agency that its all been sent. The government is closed there for another holiday, and we really wanted to get everything there before. But our paperwork snags and delays held us up and it sounds silly, but each day it doesn't get logged in, it delays us more than a day getting to her. And we still have a lot of steps left to go.
We still have our donation site up. It is tax deductible so you'll get a receipt via email to use on your taxes!
