one hurdle down

We are officially official, meaning we are home study approved!

It's hard to believe that, less than a year ago, we were announcing our intention to adopt. Now we are legally able to. We still have a long way to go: picking an agency, creating our profile, waiting, and more waiting. Not to mention the fact that I've started a new blog/website and Facebook page focused solely on our adoption (more on this soon). But the home study approval was a big step to overcome in this process.

It feels good to move forward.

Congratulations Katie, major accomplishment! I keep pondering the idea of adoption but it all seems so overwhelming....perhaps watching you go through it will inspire me to get off my butt and start acting.

Congratulations! It feels like so much shorter than a year and so much longer, both at the same time, even looking in from the outside.
