The call we have been waiting for!

We have been waiting for "The call" from our agency for quite awhile now, the call saying that Camden's emigration permission paperwork had been submitted to the ministry in Korea, and to our delight that call came this morning. 

In layman's terms that call means that our little guy should be on his way home in the near future.  Our family of 5 will be turning into a family of 6!

To celebrate our big day we surprised the kids with a trip to their favorite restaurant and a cake from a beyond-delicious local bakery.  I'm not quite sure Addy understood the significance of the day's main event, as she broke out in
a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday to Camden.

The time frame moving forward is fluid, but we have been told that the paperwork should be approved anytime from three to eight weeks from now with travel shortly thereafter.  We are hoping that means that Sara and I will be on a flight bound for Camden's homeland in mid-July.

Side note:  I typically bribe my kids into giving me good looking smiles for pictures by telling them that after I get a good one I will take a funny face picture.  Case in point...


  1. How exciting!!! Can't wait for Camden to be home with your fun bunch! Congratulations!

  2. CONGRATS! I'm so happy for you! I hope the rest of the process goes quickly and smoothly and that you get to travel to your son soon.

  3. Whoo-hoo! Congrats! I'm praying it goes quickly and he gets home soon!

  4. SO happy to hear this news and for the whole family. I can't wait to meet him.
