We are very excited to let everyone know that we applied for Sierra's passport to go with us to bring Savannah home from China. We are so happy to know that this is done. We also had book bags for each of the girls with their names embodied on them. We also picked them up today. They will be using them for their carry on and for any toys, or items that they want to keep close to them while we are in China. I have to say....I wish we could fly out tomorrow!! But all in God's time!

Fingerprint appointment!!!!!!!

We received awesome news in the mail today!! We have our finger print appointment set in Chicago on the 31st of January!!! We are so excited and happy!! We were thinking that this would not come until the middle or end of February!! This is the next big step we need to get through to go forward to bring Savannah home!!! At this point I still think May but it could easily be April. Which means........figuring out the finances to finish Savannah's adoption!!! Right now we are going to remain in the happy and celebrate this notice and upcoming date. God will remain with Savannah and us and he will direct us the steps needed to bring her home. It is an awesome day in the Wanless family home!!!!!! We do have an AWESOME GOD!!!!

We are having a raffle to help with the funds to bring Savannah home from China. It is a 7 night stay in Gatlinburg Tennessee at Gatlinburg Town Square. It is a two bedroom, two bath, with a full kitchen and laundry. The complex has two pools one inside and one outside, grills, baskeball court, and discounts to local entertainment. It sleeps up to 8 and it is 6 blocks from the entrance of Smokey Mountains and about 3 blocks from all the wonderful shops in Gatlinburg. It is a trolley away from Pigeon Forge. It is a beautiful relaxing vacation. We use it every year but because of our journey to China we will not be able to use it and thought why not allow others the chance to experience the wonderful time as we usually do. The raffle tickets for this raffle is $25.00 a chance. We will be pulling the winner on March 17th.
If you are interested please email us at for information or questions you might have. Thank you for helping us bring our daughter home!!
