The bird has landed

August 5, 2008

While this is a very exciting week for us, it has been pretty uneventful.  I have solidified my work schedule for the fall and I will be living in an airplane for about 2 weeks, so I guess that is a development.  It’s all good!  I picked up our home study from our agency today and it is very good.  I am very satisfied!  At this point I look back at the last four months of our adoption process and can’t believe it has gone by so fast.  I hope I can say that once we are on the waiting list.  There have been ups and down and at times when each week went by without any progress it was equivalent to getting stitches without pain medication.  Isn’t that how adoption and life is anyway?  I am also very satisfied as we leave for vacation in 2 weeks and 2 days.  Every morning I get up and repeat that to myself.  Yes, I talk to myself.  Just admit it–you talk to yourself also.  I am also currently trying to finish reading my adoption book.  It has turned boring.  I think it is a good read until about chapter 4.  As the title states, it is the “whole life adoption book” and my child’s “whole life” could be a while.  So instead of making myself forge ahead, I think I will read applicable parts to myself now and save the rest for a night that I have insomnia.  I think I will switch to reading Three Cups of Tea.  It has won a couple of awards, so I think it will be a good read.  I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive of our journey.  At times, it is what keeps me going-and our future child!

    Hi Gwen & Jeremiah,
    I saw that you posted a comment on our blog, but it’s not showing up on the site. I assume I messed up the approval process somehow, so please feel free to try again and I promise to be more careful with my clickage, lol.
    Our latest update is that we’ve been given a fingerprint appointment by USCIS! Yay, more fingerprints!!
    Take care,
    Mark & Jessica
