Our contact at LSS in Minneapolis emailed me today that we are officially in "the book" and that our online posting will be up within 24 hours. So, as of November 4, 2011, we are officially a waiting adoptive family! Interesting since it seems like we've been waiting a long time already, but this is a new wait. A wait with a chance.
I'm hopeful that the end result is what we've been dreaming of for years....a bigger family. To be even more blessed than we are already.
What will we do during our wait? Enjoy G-man. Organize stuff, lots of stuff. Research cloth diapers? Sleep. Live the profile. Be thankful for what we have. Embrace being a waiting adoptive family. (Cyn, that word was for you!)
I feel like we just got accepted into an exclusive group that we've been waiting so long to be part of! :)
