Well I'm finally making the official announcement:
We've begun the adoption process again!
I can't really share many details yet. I will just quickly say that we're adopting much sooner than we'd anticipated and that it's a bit of a long story. I can also share that we're hoping to adopt Ethiopian children who have been waiting (and waiting...and waiting...) for a family. Kids who need homes today.
So we're up to our ears in paperwork and social worker visits, and to be honest, it's a bit overwhelming. (This process sure is more daunting when you have five young kids at home, as opposed to just the one!) I'm excited, and nervous all at once. Our social worker visits are complete (yay!), but we're still needing to get our physicals, fill out a bunch of forms, get fingerprinted, etc. My kids have this game called "Busytown" and, well, that pretty much sums it up!
But we're going back to Ethiopia!
I can't wait.
