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!

Happy New Year

Yesterday, your daddy woke up and the first thing he said was, "In 2007 we will become parents!" It warmed my heart to see him so excited for this.

This year also brings the expiration of alot the paperwork we've worked through to get this far. So, we have to start over again to get renewals. We have the medical papers, fingerprints and the home study to redo so far. We've heard a rumor that referrals should start coming in the first or second week of January. We are still at #4 but hope our turn comes soon!
