Well, I have to tell you...

I absolutely LOVE to blog!! I can’t believe we didn’t start this sooner. The comments left to us by other adopting families have been wonderful and it works as a great support system. To our family and friends – feel free to chime in anytime. We look forward to hearing what you have to say!
So today I added an element to the sidebar consisting of the Blogs I read. I can’t believe I did that! It actually works too!!! Those blogs are from families in all different stages of the adoption process- from the paperwork stage (Becky and Keith-almost done!) to the waiting stage like us (Ryan and Amy-dossier in Tver) to the in between court trips (Melissa and Nathan-I know this is tough) to almost at court (Adrienne and Jim- have a safe trip this weekend and congrats!!) There are other families as well in various stages that have great blogs out there. I just want to say I love reading them as much as I love writing for ours.

Hey you guys. I just wanted to give my family support! You both know how thrilled I am about this and how happy I am for you. Hang in there!
Love you both!

P.S I have ANOTHER box of clothes for you guys! (I know it's crazy but Parker is getting so big!)

Hi Troy and Rachel, my husband Matt and I are also a CHI family hoping to adopt a son from Russia! Thanks for adding us to your list of blogs. Congratulations on getting through the paperwork! We pray God's blessings on you as you wait for a referral. We are waiting for the homestudy draft and have almost all of the dossier documents ready to go for notary and apostilling. We are both new to blogging as well. We will continue to keep you in our prayers. I hope the receipt of the I-171H goes smoothly for us. The last time I checked the St. Paul office website, they were working on the documents with a receipt date of February. So glad we have found each other! We do have a lot in common.

Just found your blog. The blogging community is great.
I linked you to my blog, hope that's ok.
Hope to watch you go meet your son soon.

These blogs are addicting, aren't they?? :-) Thanks for adding us to your list! I'd love to email you or hear more about how you chose your region and what happened after you submitted your dossier. I'm ready for this dossier part to be over, but am mentally preparing myself for the next step!
