My Family

My head is still in the clouds since learning of our baby boy last week. I'm sure that I will be getting very anxious for the referral soon. Right now, I am just so thrilled to have made it this far. I'm content.

I have been very busy getting paperwork ready. Our fingerprints, police letters, and medical letters have all expired. We also need an update to our home study. Everything is well on it's way to being done.

My other project while waiting for our referral is to gather photos. I found the sweetest baby photo album the day we were matched. It is plush and shaped like a little house. It says "My Family" on the front. I plan to fill it full of pictures of friends and family. I want to send the album to our baby via another traveling family. I want to tag the pictures in English and Vietnamese. I'm excited to put it all together.

This has been a great week for us and our fellow adopting families... lots of matches and referrals! We are glad to share this happy time with the other families and hope to travel with some of them. I hope we will have more news to share very soon! A.

OMG- I love the album. I want to do the same thing and have been checking the stores all over for the perfect album. I love the idea!

I love that album much better than the ones we found after TONS of searching. I am still so excited for you!

I hope that you won't mind that I ordered one of the albums too! SO cute!! What a great way to celebrate your match! I'm finding all kinds of ways to celebrate also--this little dress, that little swimsuit!!
