Just a quick note. We will do much better updating the blog after we are over this first step of paperwork. Saturday was 14 pages of answering questions. Monday/Tueseday was writing 5+ pages of Autobiographies -- one 5 pager for Rog, one 5 pager for Ab. We've already got our "homework" done for our November 3rd meeting -- so Ab is turning it in today and seeing about moving the meeting date up. Hurry up and wait. Hurry up and wait. We are hoping to get everything squared away by the first of the year, then we'll just be waiting. (Hopefully Ab can find time to write so you don't have to keep reading my posts!) -- Right now she had two jobs: Court Reporting and Adoption. Thanks for all of your continued support. Stay tuned.

We've taken the plunge. After trying to direct our own lives we decided to LET GO AND LET GOD. And what a difference. For the first time in a long time we are both at ease and completely relaxed. I'm sure Abby will fill you in on more details as we go. My job is just to let everyone know we have started the paper work to adopt from Ethiopia. (That's in Africa, Pops). Our dream timeline is to have a new bundle of joy home for Christmas 2009. We know we have a long journey ahead but after all we've been through it feels great to be headed down a road we KNOW will have a successful outcome. We've filled out the first round of paperwork and had our first round of digital fingerprinting. The running joke so far is this: If everyone had to go through all this to have a baby the entire human race would have died off LONG, LONG ago. Here we go.
