Lots to Update

We haven't updated the blog in a while - we have been busy. First, we have finally finished our family book and are ready to share it with the world! You can find the final version here. We spent days locating appropriate pictures and finding the right words and we are so happy with the final product - 15 copies are on their way to our agency for showing to birthparents! Thanks to Kathy and Josh for helping us put the final touches on the book!

Whew! Glad that hurdle has been jumped.

We also found out (finally) that David's background check has been cleared. So really the only thing we are waiting on is my medical form. My appointment is next week, so we can basically check that off.

Some more exciting news is that we are scheduled to have our homestudy interview completed this Saturday! The social worker called us yesterday and set up our 5 hour (yes, 5 hours) visit for this weekend. We are busy cleaning and trying not to be nervous.

Thanks again, can't wait to update you all after we have the homestudy interview complete!


  1. Oh my goodness, it is fabulous! Absolutely fabulous. I particularly love the last page. We're not progressing at all. End of the semester stuff, but soon, soon. We're not doing any fundraisers right now for adoption, but I am doing fundraisers for helpamotherout.org and there are a whole bunch of people doing small events. I did a Learn-to-Knit Party. A friend suggested that I also do a Learn-to -Crochet in the backyard and folks might participate in that.

  2. LOVE your book! It looks absolutely fabulous!!!

  3. David's dad wanted credit for the title page photo. He had already mentioned that he thought you should use that picture and wow did you ever. The book is great I love the Thank you Page.

  4. would it be weird if i ordered the photo book for my coffee table?

  5. Thanks everyone! Glad you all liked it...and Caitlen we would be honored to sit on your coffee table...hee, hee, hee!
