I decided it's time to start blogging again. I took a good break from it for a while. This blog is dedicated to our to our son or daughter who is in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). For all of our family and friends who live so far away...and also those friends that are near. This is a way for you to follow along and see where we are in the process of bringing our baby home from the DRC. It's been a long and crazy journey so far! One that is so so worth it! To update you all...we have received our home study completed, notarized, certified in hand today!!!! Scott and I still couldn't believe it was done. After 6 months of frustration, confusion, impatience, lot's of prayer, and crying phone calls to friends and family (sorry!) we are finished with that home study...phew...did I mention adopting from Puerto Rico makes things slightly more difficult? :) Our home study went from being translated in Spanish, to English, and now to French as soon as we send it off to our adoption agency (A Love Beyond Borders). We also have every item completed for our dossier! Off to the military lawyer tomorrow to get those last 3 items notarized and then (since we are military it is already state certified through notarization) we are sending everything to our agency in a big envelope and celebrating the send off! We were told we will be receiving a referral for our child in 2 weeks...4 at max. Our child is already identified for us but the initial paperwork on the Congo side is being done. We are so very excited to receive that email or phone call so we can finally see a photo and know who are child is! We don't have any idea if it's a boy or a girl but I can assure you we have a K name picked out for either :)
