Happy New Year! Here are pictures of our babies on New Year's Eve! Our friends came over with their brand new puppy "Maddie" and she "fit" right in with our babies Eiger and Sierra! Aren't they adorable!?! They played all night, until Sierra decided she wanted some shut eye and found a spot under the ping pong table...Maddie soon followed in her footsteps!

The Roller Coaster Ride...

We're not talking about the kind of ride that you'd go on at Disneyland...but rather the "emotional" Roller Coaster ride that goes along with waiting, and waiting, and waiting. Being an impatient person, I've done pretty well (I think)...but this weekend wasn't so great...panic set in, wondering if we would ever get a referral for our little guy. We were hoping that we would be able to travel in February (Of course, these are "our" plans...not necessarily God's plans). So, since we hadn't heard any news yet, I figured I'd actually CALL our consultant (if you know me, you know that I'm not a "phone" person). Anyhow, I talked with her and she told me very carefully "don't plan on traveling in February". The good news is that our Dossier is officially registered in Vlad now and she was able to tell us that we are one of the next few families to get a referral. As to when that will actually happen, that is still up in the air. So, the roller coaster ride continues with some good news and some questions still left to be answered.
