I just got off the phone with our social worker...our newest CIS updates and Adam Walsh paperwork is lost. I sent it to CHSFS a couple of weeks ago and it's MIA! Just our luck...why isn't this easier? I shed a few tears of frustration and now I'm off to complete them again! Uhhhhhhhgggg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This past weekend, Cory's brother got married in Rochester. Unfortunately, we didn't get many good pictures or any pictures of the three of us for that matter. However, I did get some random pictures of Allies unique dance moves.
Here's the move Cory called "the peeing dog." Allie would get on all fours and lift one leg up in the air and just hold it there! It was beyond funny and everyone got quite a kick out of it! She would then lay on the floor and turn around...almost like a breakdancing move! Oh Allie, you sure have your own little style of dancing...you must get that from your dad!
When a couple is pregnant, they have many milestones that helps them to get through the 40 weeks of waiting for their newest little miracle to arrive. With adoption, the milestones aren't as frequent and often times are (from our experience) celebrated more on a private level.
On June 5 we celebrated a big milestone in our journey to our baby E (or baby E's if it's twins...wink wink), we celebrated our one year anniversary of being on "the list." One year officially waiting! Can you believe it?
We know that we are now one year closer to our second child, however it's hard not to think about the changes that have happened since we began this journey to baby E. When we began this adoption, we were hoping to be receiving a referral right about now. We were hoping that by the end of the summer, we would be in Ethiopia and that I would take this entire school year off. The reality is that we have at least another year before we receive a referral and then at least 4-6 months before we are home as a family of four. I pray that our time line doesn't extend longer than that...
It's been a long while since we've had the Internet and since we've updated our blog. I'm going to post a picture or two for now and I promise I'll write more soon! I've missed being able to check in on all of my favorite blogs, but I have to admit that I've been so productive since not having the Internet!!! Oh well, guess Cory will have to be okay with the house not being 100% clean when he gets home at night!!!
Enjoy the pictures and I hope everyone is having an amazing summer!!!
On March 26, 2008 our lives were forever changed by the birth and adoption of our first little miracle.
Our second little miracle arrived home from India on November 30, 2011.
It's our dream to welcome more children into our family through adoption, but for now we are enjoying being a family of four!
