As you all know Jon and I have started the adoption process to adopt a baby from Taiwan. We've had a busy 2 months gathering documents, homestudies, and gathering more documents. We've done really well and finished our homestudy in less than two months. A couple weeks ago, I went to Orlando where my closest friend Jen, helped me prepare the birthfamily photoalbum. We've mailed off our immigration forms, and are now waiting to rec'v our appointment to get fingerprinted(yipee!!). Our album was sent to Taiwan and we just rec'd word that the orphanage-Cathwel- has rec'd it and we are now officially "waiting". In the adoption world we are now considered "paper pregnant". Whew!!! I thought I'd never be pregnant. So we're pretty stoked and we can now hurry up and wait. The whole waiting for a referrel itself thing will take anywhere from 6-12 months so we have a lot of waiting to do. I' m not so good with the patience thing, so I guess this is where I'm gonna learn that. I'll keep this blog so everyone can keep up with what's going on with the adoption. I'm sure I'll be posting a bunch of other stuff too. Eventually we'll be able to post picture of our little treasure in Taiwan.
