The Room

We've had the baby's room ready for quite sometime, but we were missing a dresser. We searched for many months, but couldn't find exactly what we wanted. So, my dad came to the rescue and made the perfect dresser! Thanks Dad!! Now, we are completely ready for our little guy.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered

The frenzy of paperwork is completed! We mailed our little package today! Pray that we don't have to make anymore changes to our documents. Now, we wait for travel dates. We can hardly contain ourselves, as we have already fallen in love with our little guy. Hopefully we will be traveling soon! We wanted to say a big thanks to everyone for being so supportive!! We appreciate all your comments and caring wishes!!

Too Good to be True?

We got a referral!! Yes...I said, we got a referral. I have to repeat myself because it is too good to be true!! We keep pinching ourselves to make sure it is real. We ended up signing with Life Adoption Services instead of WCS, and they had a referral for a little guy for us!! We have been busy updating paperwork and will find out more next week. In the mean time, we can't stop smiling!

After 15 months with our agency, we made the decision to part our ways. We loved our consultant, but felt that things were taking way too long. We are well aware that the world of international adoption requires patience, patience, and more patience but it seemed as though we were slowly going nowhere. Our dossier has expired and so it seemed like the perfect time to make a change. So, we decided to apply to another agency that works with a fewer number of families.

We actually feel excited and hopeful again! We look forward to hearing that we are accepted with the new agency. Then it is back to the paperwork!
