Tear Jerker!!

I know I already posted this week but this video is worthy.
This is an AWAA (our adoption agency) family, who recently brought home their baby boy Nile from Ethiopia. The video says everything, no explanation needed =)

Fall for the Fulmer's

We had an amazing time with Ryan's parents this weekend in northern Georgia. It was such a blessing to spend time with them. We went horseback riding, played card games and visited the Apple Festival. When we returned home we were delighted to find our finalized Home Study in our mailbox!! This is a huge step toward the adoption process. Now that we have these documents, we will send our I-600A to US Immigration Services. They will reply with the MOST important document the I- 171H. We will take this document with us to Ethiopia and it will officially allow our child to come back as an American Citizen!! (It's exciting to type :)
Below is a picture of our I-600A application~ Ryan thought it was too funny that I made it "pretty". Honestly, we are praying hard that this process doesn't take the estimated 12 weeks. We'll be sure to let you know when this step is completed. If you get a moment, please say a little prayer for our I-600A! Thanks for your love and support through this journey! Love, Ash
