If you missed our "Red Thread Story to Jillianan" make sure that you go to the post before this one.
The second part of Emma's 5th birthday was a party at Jump Zone with all of her new Kindergarten friends. For those of you who know me, I usually do a themed birthday party at home with all the games, crafts, cake etc. I did do the cake for our family birthday party but Emma really wanted a party at the Jump Zone and it was the easiest party I have ever done! They did everything. They kept things moving and they did the clean up. I needed something easy because Mike was out of town, that is why we had the family birthday party early. It was a big week with the first week of kindergarten and homeschooling Lily with Mike gone for a week.
Emma was so happy to finally have her birthday. She does not like having the last kid birthday in the family. She is so excited that when we get Jilliana her birthday will now be the last kid birthday in our family.

Miss Lily Lollipop got her first stitches when she was swimming in my sisters boyfriends pool. We don't really know what she did. I was watching her the whole time and she came over by me and I noticed her chin looked red. Then when she got out I saw blood on her chest. We looked at her chin and she had split it open. She is such a tough kid! We decided it would be best to go to Urgent care and she came home with four stitches. They just put that gel on it and sewed it up. She didn't budge or cry! The Dr. said he had never seen a tougher kid.
And now for some more pictures of Jilliana. I plan to share a few each post. My next post I will put the update report we just got for her.
I don't quite understand this one, but this is one of her first referral pictures in her file. She does have a cute little look but devil horns?
We are working as fast as we can to bring her home so that she can start getting the help that she may need for her hearing. We don't want her to fall to far behind. She has already lost valuable time with the disruption. We were waiting for our Child abuse clearances to come in so that we could get our homestudy completed and finally after many calls we were able to get them on Thursday. Now we are waiting for our homestudy agency to complete the homestudy report. We have all of our dossier put together except for this report. We hope that they get it to us this week so we can send it to the State Department to get Certified and then on to the Chinese Consulate to get Authenticated. When those things are done we will be able to send it to our agency and they can send it off to China and we will be officially DTC or Dossier to China.
