It's really going to happen!!

Got the pre placement paperwork from our agency yesterday! Another landmark on the adoption journey. We could hear something as early as July but I am still going with August - October. We'll see what next month brings for matches.
Need to stop procrastinating and start the getting the room together for little one.

38 Months and counting

Our paperwork has been logged in for 38 months today. We are getting there! BTW I have something in common with a Alpine black salamander...who would have known.

The animal with the longest gestation period is not a mammal; it is the viviparous amphibian the Alpine black salamander, which can have a gestation period of up to 38 months at altitudes above 4,600 feet (1,402 meters) in the Swiss alps.

DMB - Funny the way it is

Love referral time!!

So excited for all the families getting their calls! All the pictures being posted makes the wait a bit more bearable.

China finished the placement of children for the families whose dossiers (adoption application documents) were registered on/before March 14, 2006. China has 13 days worth of dossiers to process before they get to our dossier. Currently China is matching 4.3 days worth of dossiers a month, so at this time we should hear something by September or October of this year. Maybe sooner???

SNL ....Justin Timberlake

Just because. If you haven't seen this it's hilarious. Contains explicit lyrics, so you have been warned.

No news.... nada.

There is really nothing to say.

China is being cautious and has not mailed out referrals. I do believe that they have them done but are holding off sending them at this time. No word on the cut of date of this batch either.

I know, quite boring.

Let me introduce you .....

Here she is. We have named her Sookie, she responds to Jay when he calls her name. She is so stinking cute. I forgot how funny puppies can be.

Stare down with Clyde. I am sure he is thinking of a way to eat her. As you can see our cat has issues with food.
