Welcome to our journey! The decision for us to adopt a child from China has been one of the most exciting things that we have done! We had no idea that a child half a world away could already be in our hearts....this is our journey to bring him home.

Happy Holidays everyone!!!

We hope that everyone had a great Christmas!!  We did!  We got together with both sides of the family and had a great time!  We hope that the next year will be a wonderful New Year for all of you!  We are hoping that we will be able to add our new little child to our family this year!  Time will tell!  Our next Home Study meeting is coming up January 7 so that will be one more step in the right direction!  Gary had to go in and get his fingerprints redone this morning!  They said that his were unreadable.  Hopefully this will not delay anything in the process!! We had someone else do his this time and he said that he guarantees that they will go through this time....keep your fingers crossed!!

Until next time......Happy New Year!!!

Our first Home Study meeting!!

Well....we had our first Home Study meeting today!  I have to admit I was a little nervous going in.  Just wondering what it was all about and wondering what kinds of things they were going to cover.  But...all in all it went well.  Our social worker is nice and everything will be fine.  Our next meeting is not scheduled until January 7 which is almost a month away!!  She did not want to do it again before Christmas and I do understand that this time of the year is very busy!  We did get some homework so I will finish that up and keep busy with the Holidays and the meeting will be here before you know it.....right?

Finally!! We have an appointment!!

Well.....we finally have an appointment with our social worker!! Our Home Study agency finally called me on Wednesday morning and set up an appointment for our first "visit" with our social worker!!  I finally feel like we are moving ahead in the process!  All of the paperwork that we did in the beginning feels like a long time ago!!  I guess waiting is not my best attribute! With the holiday season upon us I can keep myself busy with the decorating, shopping and baking.....and then when January comes along....more waiting!! Oh my!

Will definitely keep you updated!!
