We have our Fingerprint Appointment!!!!!!

 
 
Well we got our fingerprint appointment today with USCIS, this is a HUGE step in the Dossier process. We are very excited over here in the Leggio house. Last week was very hard for our family, and to top it off on Friday I fell and fractured my heal and sprained my foot.
 But in times of trials and testing the past week I was trying to focus on God's goodness, and I just couldn't help but think we are getting close to seeing the face of our daughter. This piece of paper that we received today was just a good reminder that God has a plan and his ways are bigger than ours.
 
If you are feeling led to help out with our fundraiser to Bring home Cora Noel Leggio you can pop over to
 
Click Leggio Family if you would like to buy a shirt to support our adoption or donate to our family.
 
Thank you all who have graciously given to help our daughter be an orphan no more. We have been overwhelmed by you all.
Blessings and love from the Leggio's
 
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. James 1:27 NASB

Blessings

 
 This adoption process has come with much emotion and spiritual warfare. We know that God is Sovereign, and he knows our precious daughter and her needs, and they will be just perfect for our family. We are praying for you sweet Cora Noel. You are loved beyond measure already and we can't wait to see your precious face.
Our family has been under some spiritual warfare which we expected with starting the adoption process, but you are never really ready for it. Only with God and his promises we can hold to keeps us pushing on. Today I choose to focus on the blessings right in front of me.
 

 
These four Leggio Loves are such gifts from our Father above
 
 
And this man who I love with all my heart!!!!!!!
 
 
Focusing on blessings today I got to spend the afternoon with my handsome Sr. Captain Leggio, my kiddos, and my good friends The Ronsmans and The Jordan's. We took a trip to daddy's new station with our friends. Because................now daddy is at a really cool station that is two stories tall and has a fire pole to slide down. This by far has been my kiddos favorite station my hubby has worked at, and bonus it is right down the street from the zoo, children's museum, and Museum of natural Science. :)
 
Joe gave us all the VIP tour today and it was so much fun. There was ladder climbing, water shooting, fire tool looking, and fire pole sliding. Who could ask for more. Thank you honey for blessing the kiddos today. Also a special thanks to the new rookie and Pesek for loving on the kiddos today.

Fall School Fun!!!!!

 
We have had some fun times with school lately and wanted to post. 
 
Mia has to be in the middle of it, it has been a challenge to keep her busy while we school. I got some great ideas from Sharon over on her blog to keep little bit occupied. So now princess has work boxes with plenty of things to keep her busy with gross, fine motor skills, numbers and letter recognition. This has made school days go much smoother with her being busy with her work boxes. :)
 
The boys are really enjoying History and Science and I am having fun with it too. We just read about Samson and learned a lot of History behind that story which was Awesome. I am learning right a long with them. Doing the Creation to the Greeks with Mystery of History has been just great for us this year. We love it!!!!
 
Another thing I am being very intentional with this year is focusing on Thankfulness. I want the kids to see all the blessings in their life as real live blessings from our Father above. I started a thankful tree, thanks to Pinterest and it is going great and our whole family is doing it. I think this is going to be a new tradition in our family.
 
On the adoption side.........our I800A has been sent, our Dossier docs have been sent to Secretary of State, as soon as these come back they will be walked in to the Chinese Consulate in Houston and then sent to our agency. Praying that our immigration approval is super super speedy!!!!!! We are also doing our fundraiser Kick off and could really use your support. You can by a T-shirt or donate at http://www.projectloveone.org/store
 
Male sure you click on Leggio Family!!!!!! Thanks for your prayer and support.

Fall Festivities

 
 
We have had some Fall Fun around here. First we kicked it off with a train ride to the pumpkin patch. The kids had fun getting to ride an old train and grab a pumpkin. Mia was so cute trying to shove her pumpkin in her Hello Kitty candy holder. It was too funny.
Next we celebrated Trick or Treating with some friends doing a Trunk or Treat in our new neighborhood. Then back to the house for hotdogs chili and CANDY!!!!! Our new neighborhood does Trunk or Treat, but they also do hayrides around to houses. So when kids came a trick or treating it was by the hayride load, and all the kiddos had fun passing out candy too them.
I hope all of you are having a wonderful Fall. It is one of my favorite times of the year. :)
