New entries on Avery's Quilt blog

We've posted a couple entries on Avery's Quilt Blog that show the first two pages in her scrapbook that will go with her quilt. The first page has the invite that we sent out in the mail today- you should be getting them soon. Keep checking your mailbox! We couldn't possibly send one to everyone we know, so if you don't get one in the mail and would like to take part, by all means do!! We would love to have as many good wishes and prayers as possible for Avery's quilt! There is more info about the quilt on the quilt blog, which has a link to the right in the links section.

The second entry in the quilt blog is the page we put in her scrapbook that has our wish(es) to her. In the upper right hand corner of our wish page are swatches of fabric we are putting in the quilt. If you choose to do the full scrapbook page like we did, feel free to lay yours out however you choose! Be creative! Her scrapbook pages are 12x12. If you choose not to do a full page and only want to send in your fabric square and your wish with a swatch, that is fine too. We will incorporate it into a page to put it into Avery's scrapbook.

We look forward to seeing what you all come up with and what your wish for Avery is! We can't wait to share the scrapbook with Avery when she gets older so she can match the wishes in the scrapbook to the fabric in her quilt!

We are DTC!!!


We got an email from Vicky at New Life Adoption Agency today informing us that our dossier was sent to China on Friday, June 29th! They received verification from FedEx today that it was signed for at the China Center of Adoption Affairs (CCAA). We now are waiting for our Log In Date (LID) from CCAA. This is the date our dossier is actually logged into their system and we are in the queue!

This is one of the major milestones we have been working towards! One step closer to Avery...

We will be sending out info for Avery's 100 Good Wishes Quilt very soon- keep checking your mailboxes. I have also set up another blog to track the progress of her quilt. There is a link to it under 'adoption links' on the right side of the page.

More to come soon!
