Today we received an email telling us that our homestudy is approved!!! Here is a quote from the email, "...BIG milestone achieved." Wowee! It's beginning to sink in, that we are really going to become parents. :0) Somewhere in Korea, our baby is being taken care of by their foster family, waiting to be assigned to us to become their forever family. We know you're probably wondering, what's next? The next major step will be a referral, which is when we will get matched with a baby. When will that happen? My guess is probably not until around the very end of summer.
Last night I had the chance to talk to a fellow adoptee who is also adopting from Korea. Sad to say she lives on the east coast, but we have plenty of reasons to visit the east coast so I know that someday we shall meet! Anyway...she also received some exciting news. She and her husband received their referral!!! I am thrilled for them! It would have been awesome if we had been able to travel at the same time, but I am extremely happy that this momentous step has occurred in their journey. Our chat must have brought good luck to both of us, so maybe we'll have to chat more often!!!
I think it's always nice to have a picture with a post, so today I chose one where our family was celebrating. This was a picture from my newphew's baptism. It also happens to be his dad's birthday. Happy Birthday Joe! We hope that you had a wonderful day and now April 5th will always be a special day for 3 special reasons! :0)
