We're on our way!

We got word from our Social worker Sarah yesterday that our dossier had been sent to Colombia. Yea! Now it will take about a month to be translated, and then we will hear in the next couple of months after that if we have been accepted, or if they need more info from us. And THEN we are put on the waiting list! The average wait right now for an infant in 30 months, but you never know what will happen when you are dealing with international adoption. So, we are preparing ourselves for up to a three year wait, but it could come much sooner! I'm excited to meet the child/children that God has chosen already to be a part of our family. :)

Life continues...

Well, not too much exciting is going on, but I am updating for all of you avid blog-readers our there. (As an avid blog-reader myself, I know how frustrating it is to visit a blog and see the same post at the top for weeks in a row. To all of you who visit our blog, I apologize for the lengthy periods of inactivity; I'll try to be more prompy with my posts!) In the adoption arena, we are SO close to sending our paperwork to Colombia. I am picking up the last piece of the puzzle (our physician's letters) tomorrow, and am taking all of our paperwork to Montgomery to get apostilled on Tuesday. For those of you not familiar with the terminology, an apostille is a verification of a notarization. Then, we can send it all to Sarah, our case worker in Tampa, who will forward it to Colombia! I will be so excited to get all of it sent off and get on "the list." The Colombian officials could ask for more papers or clarification of papers we send, but we are praying for a quick approval. Once we are approved, the wait is estimated at 2.5 years. And then baby Ryle #2 will be able to join us! :) It's very exciting.

Other than that, life continues as normal. I am 16 weeks now, and am starting to actually "show;" I'll have to post pics sometime. Hopefully we will find out in coming weeks if Baby is a girl or a boy, which we can't wait for. I need to start shopping! :)
