Who cares? I'm telling the world anyway...

We wanted to make this grand announcement and send this awesome email to everyone to announce our big news. We have been waiting to send this since the 18th of January, when we first thought it would be official. Then we thought we would be able to send it today. We can't. So screw it-here is our news before it is "official."
We've Decided to Adopt a Baby!!
Well, try to anyway. We have been working with LDS Family Services and are awaiting final approval, which now looks like it will be NEXT Monday. Everything is done, just waiting for paperwork to be stamped. But we are tired of waiting to spread the news. When it is official, we will send you the link to our online profile. Once we are officially approved, we wait for a birthmother to choose us.

So I imagine I am screwed since I can't even wait to announce we are "trying," nevermind "expecting."

I keep thinking about how F said, "And then I forgive myself" concerning the lost games. I even told Steph and we had a good laugh and both agree he is such a great kiddo. Should I call him, "Kiddo"...."kid" doesn't seem right..."child" doesn't seem right...I should say, "young man". F is a great young man.

After all the paperwork, interviews, and millions of quetions, the waiting game begins. I still can't believe how fast you all got things done. It helped inspire me to pull more late nights to finish up our stuff.

Oh the memories are coming back...what a pendulum of emotions. We're excited and very happy for you.

I hope your Cabbage Patch Dreams come true and that your baby doesn't have a yarn afro.

I am so excited for you guys! It's interesting how our lives turn out different than we first imagined, but wonderful still the same.

P.S. Horray that my blog let you comment on it. I appreciate the love. ;)

I am so happy and excited for your family. My girls and I are living proof that adoption is a loving and fulfilling way to make (or add to) a family. Hang on tight because it can be an exciting ride!
