Wheels are finally in motion!

It feels SOOOOO good to have wheels rolling on the adoption again. I joked the other day that we'll meet our daughter sometime right after we take our current 5 year old off to college... (lets just say it is moving MUCH slower than I expected)!

We passed the one year anniversary of the start of our adoption journey- and although it did make me sad, I was glad to know that we're actually DOING something on the adoption front again.

So, today I finished up the i800A application and checked with Dillon to see when our homestudy update would reach our greedy little hands... :) I'm getting the envelope ready and the check written so that I can stick it in with our other paperwork and swoop down to the post office and get it sent to the powers that be!

We're also amassing a large quantity of stuff (some nicer than the rest...) for our adoption fundraising garage sale that we hope to have on the 11th and 12th. Pray for lots more donations of valuable stuff, and for good, sunny weather. :)

ahhh... I'll update the sidebar when we actually get the I800A mailed.... :) until then I'll pace around the house- or do dishes. :)

Now that things are moving/happening, I hope the pace picks up! Good luck with the sale. If I wasn't 1800 miles away, I'd like to help. :-)
