Adoption Update!

A few weeks ago we attended our orientation and were overloaded with information regarding adoption. We left there with a minor headache, but with huge smiles on our faces! We are totally ready to get this process started! We stopped off for some yummy Chinese food on the way home and I had to laugh at the fortune hiding inside my fortune cookie. It said "Life is a series of good choices. Today yours are good ones." As if we needed a fortune cookie to validate our decision to adopt, but we had to laugh at how appropriate it was!

Shortly after our orientation, we were introduced to our caseworker - her name is Shannon and she is going to be awesome! We had our first meeting with her to get the ball rolling. She sent us home with paperwork galore and a massive checklist of things that we need to get done over the next few months. So... officially, this marks the start of all things adoption! We can't wait to finish all of the paper work so that our profile can become active on and prospective birth parents can start getting to know us! Yay!!!
