Sitting at #2

We found out January 12th that we have moved to #2. As far as we're concerned, #2 might as well be #1 because the referrals tend to come in groups. YEAH! we are so excited. We celebrated by having Indian food at Gateway to India our favorite Indian restaurant. Now we wait for the phone call to find out who you are.

We also made another purchase...diapers! The first box, of many I'm sure, entered the house, thanks to Costco and their great sales.

Troubles still loom large with the judge in Kolkata. He has been slowly signing cases, but not without asking for more documentation. The latest form now required lists all of the names a person has ever been known as ie: J. Doe, John Doe, John M. Doe etc.

On January 25th our fingerprints expire, so we are awaiting a renewal appointment and we both have to update our medical records again. Slowly, ever slowly we are honing in on this adoption.

What is keeping us going right now, is another family who is in India picking up their son. They are painting a vivid picture of their adventure on their blog. I can't seem to open their site up fastest enough each day to find out another morsel of information and imagine the day when it will be us reporting to others who are waiting. Can't wait, can't wait!

Hi I am from the dillon forum, congrats on being so close to your referral, I will never forget the day we found out about our baby girl. We are currently in the legals nightmare, have been waiting for five months. Hopefully by the time you guys are at this point, this guy will be long gone and you will go right through the process.

Hi. I have been following your blog for months. Congratulations on making it to #2. I pray that your referral comes very soon. All the pain of the wait will go away when you hold your child (or so they keep telling me).
