We've got Mail!

Package came today with lots of sheets of paper with all of these words printed on them! Hmmm......

Short 'n Sweet

It was a good day! Talked with a really nice guy today at work who adopted two amazing brothers from Ethiopia two years ago. We had a nice talk and he shared lots of great information with me. He smiled at the end of our conversation and said thanks--- the conversation was the best one he had all day at work! It was the best one for me too! Isn't it strange how you can feel connected somehow to other people who have been going through/gone through this process? I'm excited to start and even more excited to meet more amazing people!
Happy Tuesday!

Thank you Sara!

I had the most fantabulous talk with Sara last night. She is truly an amazing person and you should really go check out her blog: http://footballandfriedrice.blogspot.com
Mike and I were able to chat with her about our start-up-adoption-advice-ohmygoodness-what-are-we-doing conversation. She made me smile through the phone and told us to "JUMP IN" and get going. I have a strong feeling deep down inside that we were meant to do this. And for once, I am at peace in the inside, I KNOW we were chosen to go down this pathway. Research, reading, planning.... and more paperwork.
There's a little girl out there waiting... and there's a Mommy and Daddy looking...

The Beginning

Here we GO!
Adoption Paperwork .... and A LOT of it! Questions, tears and hope as well. We are excited to begin this journey together and with our family and friends. My heart just called me to look into adopting a child from China and I'm so grateful and thankful that Mike is as excited as I am! It's an amazing feeling to think that we could have a little one running around the house in a few months, makes me smile that's for sure! So, we welcome the prayers and happy thoughts, we will need them to keep us strong.
