Day 1

Today our Dossier was finalized and sent to Washington D.C.!!!  In about a week it will begin to make it's way to Ethiopia, but our Agency considers this Day 1 on the waiting list.  Woo Hoo!!!  In about 9 months we will finally get to see what our baby looks like and hear his/her story.  I'm so happy, and I have such a sense of peace that we've finally reached this point.  I have no doubt that the next 9 months will be agonizing at points, but, let's be honest, so have the last 2 and a half years!  Another year, or so (9 months for referral, 3-4 months for court and embassy visits), can't be that much harder, right?  We'll see!


  1. I think it will go by faster than you think. Hooray!

  2. CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!! so exciting!!
