Hi everyone. I am so excited, along with freaked out. I am in for the biggest WAIT of my life. I just got approved for my home study a couple weeks ago and now just waiting to be matched. Fingers crossed.

Hello! I'm so glad to have found you! We were just approved for a Philippines adoption in May, and are at the front-end of our BIG WAIT. Excited to have made "the list" but everyone talking about how emotional this is, you're not kidding!

OK, so 2012 was a bust for matching for us.  There were children in the offering, but the fit was never there.  I am hopeful that 2013 will finally find us bringing home a sweet daughter. 


How is everyone else? Any holiday gifts that you want to share?

Oh I missed Penny's post.  Wooo Hooo! Happy Dancing for you!  Such an exciting post.  Thank you for sharing and enjoy a rest from all that is legal-ease.... but not easy.

Hello out there.  We are still waiting too. We've had some profiles to consider and re-consider.  Just no fit yet.  Soon we hope, but of course the seasons for adopting from our Ministry are such that we are coming to yet another slow season.  If it is to be it will be.

Just checking in. How is everyone doing? I don't come here as often as I used to, but I still think of all of you!

Yay Penny!!! That is awesome. I am sure it is just a huge relief to finally be done... for now. ;) Update on us. We let our homestudy expired and ended up being able to do invitro. I am now 6 weeks pregnant and will find out next week whether we will be adding one or two to our family! :)

Today our "wait" is officially over. We had our final court date! The whole process.....four years to the week. I guess now we are taking a year off before we look into another adoption.  I'll check in periodically because I like to hear how everyone is doing. Aaaaand will be back in a year to start ALL OVER. (God help us!)  Friends, keep your spirits up, your wait will be over before you know it!!!!
