WE ARE ACTIVATED!!

WOOHOO!! YEAH! Praise the Lord! We are activated baby! Our profile can NOW be shown to prospective birth parents! No more paperwork! (well for awhile anyways! LOL!) I can finally relax! Between Commonwealth closing and taking our money, and switching to this domestic program from international (Nepal) we (really I) have been doing paperwork since March. I really thought once or twice I may lose it. We are over the moon excited to have a son, but we do stop every once in awhile and think we just might be crazy. And who knows, maybe someday there will be another one after that.
Maybe I should start praying now that we win the lottery!

Hi. Can I ask what made you decide to switch from International adoption to domestic? I am just starting our long international process to adopt from Russia. I would love to hear more details.

Thank you!

Hi Jill,

Thanks for following our blog. I was so excited to see that you are awaiting a domestic little one. We have adopted twice from China and once domestically. Our little American sweetie is amazing and it definitely was journey that I will never, ever forget!

Best of luck. I will continue to drop in. :)
