Favorite color of the day

ORANGE!!
Our file was submitted to the US Embassy on 4/17 and we received DNA authorization for the 2nd DNA test that same day!! The 2nd DNA authorization used to be issued on an orange piece of paper so that is why everyone refers to it as "orange." I was a little perplexed because I thought his BC was issued on 4/18 and we could not be submitted to the embassy without the new BC. Well, I looked at it little closer and discovered that it was actually issued on 4/16. So, we don't know if Eli has had his 2nd DNA test done, but it should be any day. Hopefully, it has already been done and is on it's way to the lab!! We LOVE getting a daily dose of good news!!! WOW!!! We are just cruisin' all the way home!!
