Monday eve.


Jaymie went to a bday party at libby lu and got the royal treatment of an updo and glitter! Right up her alley! I think one of the Libby Lu shots will be added to Juniors album so he sees how beautiful his 7 year old sister is! Tonight Jeffrey left for Boston on business. It just so happens game 6 is there tomorrow night and he had a connection and got tickets. So look for him in the crowd tomorrow as he cheers on Boston with Boston fans to take the series! He will be in heaven tomorrow. His job really has some perks.

news


In the blogger world, you start up friendships with people who have been there, are there and are just starting out their journey. You find people adopting in the same state as you, and talk with others who are using the same agency. Well, one gal I have been emailing back and forth with who is using the same agency as us and is also waiting for a toddler boy just got a referral 2 days ago for a toddler boy. I believe our app. was in a couple weeks after hers. So we pretty much are right up there on the list of a referral of a toddler boy I believe. Her app was only in for 6 weeks. So.......you just never know when you get that call. WOW!
In the near future you will most likely be seeing pics of the girls flipping on a trampoline. Jeffrey and I picked one up last night and the girls are going to be surprised when we pick them up from their friends houses today (they spent the night at our old neighbors!) We got the trampoline off Craigslist! What a bargain! I have to go into work today because of a makeup snow day, so we will see how far along they are in putting it together when I get home. So, just wanted to celebrate the 6 week referral of my email friend!

photo album


So now that the wait has begun, what does one add to their blog to update people on the latest. I suppose tell them every detail, no matter how small of a step about the adoption. So, yesterday, Jacklyn and I purchased our small photo album that we get to send over once the referral is accepted. We will fill it with photos of us, our amimals, our house, etc..... They share this with the little one as a way to introduce us and so they can recognize us a bit when we get to the orphanage. I know the older children like to show their friends their new family and such. So we have 24 photos to fill to give him a first impression. Thank goodness for digital cameras.

We're paper pregnant!


Well...........we got our email from our international agency that our dossier left for Ethiopia on Friday. This means we are OFFICIALLY on the waiting list. They are now referring families who have the same requests as far as age and gender and such as ours who submitted their apps. in Aug. So, a bit of a wait, but also included in the email was something to the fact that referrals should be moving a bit quicker in the near future as the director is their now working on something. Some of the things that take such time are the fact that they only have electricity a couple times a week. The rainy season occurs sometime I believe in Aug/Sept. and this closes the courts. In the meantime, I believe our little guy will come into our lives when he is hand picked from God, and we will welcome him with open arms.
