tuh-dum!

There she is...in all her glory. We recieved that packet from Gladney which included this gourgeous certificate of approval, 2 copies of our Homestudy and instructions on what we need to do next. Ethiop' here we come! I think that now this means that our homestudy has now been sent off to CIS and they should be calling any day to schedule our fingerprinting appointments...no hurry. I will be sitting by the phone, bitting every last fingernail off and drumming my fingers until theyre raw, but whatever, no hurry. I'm cool. :)

Hey Girl-
Good news today- another family http://daileader.blogspot.com/ got a referral on Thursday for a adorable 6 mo old baby girl! They submitted their dossier on 5/29- so that's just over 2 months! I'm still hopefull for us that we might have our cutie babies by Christmas!
FYI- our CIS finger printing appt. came in the mail- so you might want to add stalking the mailman to your list of things to do! :)
Talk to you soon!

YAY!! So exciting!! Another check mark to the list! I am guilty of stalking the mailman for our CIS approval. I checked the mail many many times during the days I was home just in case I didn't see him delivering. I wonder sometimes if I was this crazy before we started this process!

I am glad thing are moving for you! We will have to pray that our babies will get to come home together for Christmas! I do have to say that though I am in 100% support of stalking, it was that day I was not expecting it and in the middle of other things that our approval and referrals came.

I just wanted to let you know how excited I am for you guys! That is so awesome that you are moving along in the process. Also, I wanted to tell you I love the name! Nezar and I had actually picked out Maleeka....if and when we ever have a girl. I'm sure you know it's Arabic for Angel....I think you've picked out such a sweet little name!
