For those of you who may or may not know, Marc and I are adopting a little girl from Russia. We are all excited to be expanding our family and helping out a child in need, including Emily who is thrilled at the propect of being a big sister.
We started the process last summer. We did a LOT of research on the topic and choose an agency that came highly recommended by family friends and in whom we feel very confident will match us with God's child for us. Since then, we have been filling out paperwork after paperwork, and in many cases, redoing it over and over again. There have already been some snags along the way, but amazingly, we've stayed calm and simply taken care of what has needed to be done.
Today we received the LAST documents needed for the foreign dossier, and this evening the agency notified us that we are officially on the wait list. I never thought I would be so excited to be on a wait list, but it means that we are one HUGE step closer to bringing our daughter home.
I will keep you updated as we get more information. We may not have much more to say for a few months, but I wanted to at least get the blog started.
