Well... I have no brilliant introduction for this post... but I come to you guys today to tell you that we got our Preadoption Counseling Appointment!!! This means that we are starting the process officially toward getting our baby.
Can I just tell you that I laughed, cried, and sat there in shock all at the same time. Too funny. I'm glad that we'd already started the process of putting together our plans for the nursery - the bedding will be ordered tomorrow. The rest of the stuff will probably start this weekend... or at least that would be my guess.
I've got to get through our Women's Service Project at church - but then it's all baby prep. Our meeting is on December 4th at 9 AM. From there we will get a full adoption packet and get put on the list for the homestudy.
The thing that I learned tonight that was new - is that the homestudy isn't done until a birth mother is interested in your profile. There are stories of people having their homestudy done and within 2 weeks they have a child placed in their home!
Our friend that has already been through this - talked to another of her friends that is extremely close to the leadership at the agency and apparently they have a lot of birth mothers right now... so you never know. John's dream might just become a reality... oh my goodness. My head just starts spinning when I think about how amazing that would be!
