Waiting to join the Waiting Parents

Adoption Update:

Jesse and I are ALMOST done with our Home Study! We finished meeting with our Social Worker (who was absolutely wonderful and will be such a wonderful resource once we bring our baby girl home) and we are now waiting for her to write her report. After she finishes her report, we will add it to the rest of our Home Study documents and then add the Home Study to our Dossier (yikes - that's a lot) and we will then be added to the Waiting Parents List!

Once we are added to the list, there will be A LOT of waiting. Waiting and waiting and waiting. We will be waiting for about 8-12 months. Whew. I can hardly take it....

I hope that one day, our daughter will be able to absorb how very much we want and already love her. Please hurry home.

We have several friends out here that are adopting from Ethiopia as well. One couple is adopting siblings and will be bringing them home really soon. I know (from reading your journey and others journeys) it is a ton of work but your little girl will be lucky to have you guys as parents! :)
