Locks (not hair) of Love

Craig and I are so excited to do this.  We planned on going to the Seoul Tower anyway.  Craig is going to etch Reid's name on the lock with his tools.  He said writing a name on a lock with a sharpie will only last a years time. Can't wait to take a picture!

A little update...

I called Immigration today and spoke to the officer handling our case. This is the first time I've ever called Immigration for this adoption or our previous one. Our officer said our I-600 would be processed today! It was the last file she grabbed for her short stack and put on her desk this morning.

When she approves our case, she will mail it (2nd day air) to the Visa Center in New England. It usually takes them 4 days or so to do what they have to do. Then, finally, they will send our stuff to the Embassy in Seoul. So, it's not out of the question to have our 'stuff' in Seoul for Reid's Visa within 10 days! Our travel notice should come a couple weeks after that! Wow, we're getting down to the wire!

Oh, the lady said Immigration loves to process Korea paperwork because everything is in order and nothing is missing. It's very easy for them. Yeah!! And because our pictures and info on Reid is 5 months old now, our agency emailed Korea today to ask for a progress report. Hopefully it doesn't take too long to get that. In 2 days Reid turns 9 mo. old!

Reid's blanket

My grandma made every grand child and great grandchild a blanket like this.  I thought it was only fitting for Reid to have one too.  I just finished it.  Whew!  I believe Reid would have been the 27th great grandchild.
