A little progress...

We heard back from the senator's office (after 3 emails) confirming our address with CIS is correct now. She also said if we don't have our approval by Monday, let her know and she'll follow up on the status. It's been 9 weeks since we applied and over 6 since we got fingerprinted. Any day now...

We had a yard sale last weekend (not the big one with the bake sale-just trying to clear out some of the stuff we have so far). We didn't do too bad! I was pleasantly surprised. Granted, $300 is not going to hardly put a dent in our $25,000 bill for this adoption, but it's more the mentality that 'it's the thought that counts.' Most of the stuff we sold was our own, but the fact that my mother-in-law, aunt, brother, a coworker and someone at church gave us stuff to sell shows their support and means a lot to us. It shows us that Dylan will be accepted into the family with open arms. My sister and parents are getting stuff together for the next one (they have busy lives and didn't have much notice for the first sale!). I think a couple coworkers and hopefully my sister-in-law will be baking items for the bake sale. I even had a friend out of state offer to donate new items for a raffle. The support of everyone means so much more than anything!

I do hope that your process is done in a speedy method. I am hoping that you do get Dylan before the new year!

Saw your post on That Site. Huzzah!!!! See, I knew you'd be a mother before me. :) :) I'm so happy for you.

Oh, and I also told you that if you got everything set up for a baby, you'd end up with twins. Hehehe... I could still be right! LOL What would you call the second one? Bob? Thomas? JK

I'm so excited. And just in time for Father's Day, too! Wooooooooooo! Party down!

Hey, that's another great thing. You can drink to celebrate your success!

Ok, I'll stop now. Congratulations! I'm sooooo happy for you guys!!!
