BIG Day!

Today is THE day, what I mean by that is at precisely 2:30 we will be in the midst of our first homestudy. YAY! This is where the process gets exciting. This meeting (to take place in Cedar Rapids) will be approx 3 hours long! In another week or so our social worker (SW) will be coming out to camp to evaluate whether the spiders are a real issue for adoptive parents. After that, we get our dossier paperwork done and then we wait. And the next thing to come to us will be news of our children. AHHHHH. So excited!

This Saturday we went to Iowa City and met up with some friends we met at our PAC. One couple lives in Johnston, the other in Iowa City. It was great to see them again. It would be so neat to travel to Ethiopia with them.

My friend from our online forum, Erica, is official waiting. Follow her story at www.sweetpeasandsunshine.blogspot.com it is so exciting for them!

Other than that, we continue to hammer on. I'm picking up more and more clients. My boot camp class out at camp is supposed to start next week as well so that's also exciting.

In sad news, my tonsils are again swelling. Looks like I might go under the knife again soon. :( Boo. We'll see

Anyway, hope all is well. I will report again after our HS!!! We're coming babies, we're coming!

I'm so excited for you to start this piece of the journey to your children...it will be done before you know it!

Jake & I are now officially "paper pregnant" & waiting! Can't wait to share our good news with you when we get it, and hoping you get yours soon as well!
