Today marks the finalization of our Home Study! See the 5 month ticker over on the right? After busting my butt to get the home visits and all paperwork done in 2 months - I was so disheartened to learn that I would have to wait another 3 months for our Adoption Education to finish - and it felt like an eternity! During the course of these 5 months, we have been around the world starting in the DRC (Congo), to the US and now to Kenya. That doesn't account for Haiti - where we first felt the pull of adoption, and then Ethiopia where are hearts were captured and we signed on to the program wait list 17 months ago! The agency has since been taken over by another agency and they will not honour that wait list. They call it a roller coaster ride for a reason - and I'm pretty sure we haven't even stepped foot in the car yet!!

Thank you friends and family for all the reference letters and extensive questionnaires you did on our behalf! It is so nice to know that we people like you on our side!

Onward and upward - we have a meeting with Sunrise on the 24th, where we will be officially signing on to transfer our HS (home study) and enter the Kenyan program! Yippee!
