Just a quick note to say that I am on pins and needles waiting to hear that we are Gladney approved. All our documents are in as far as I know, and I was hoping we would hear before the week ended that we were approved, but it looks like that will not be the case. I know in the scheme of things, this doesn't mean much, but I will take all the good news I can get, no matter how small it may be!

We've finished all our dossier paperwork, we are just waiting for our CIS approval to come through. We did get a request for more information from them this week, so I sent that back, and am hoping that means we will hear something soon.

I have to share a cute story with you all. Early this morning, Lilli crawled in to bed with us, after a few minutes she said, "I want my brother or sister." We told her we would have to wait a little while longer. She responded with, "I want my brother or sister, right NOW!"

It was so cute! We are really starting to talk to her about this and try to explain to her what a brother/sister is, and how that means she will have to share her stuff and her Mommy and Daddy.

Well I guess that's all I have today, back to the unpatiently waiting I go!


  1. Patience is a virtue that doesn't run strong in our family... but you are doing a good job so far!

  2. We are living (almost) parallel lives!! :) We just got Gladney approved yesterday; however, we are still waiting on our fingerprinting appointment and FBI approval. So close! It's fun to go through the process with another family!

    Eli said at dinner last night that he wanted Gabe to come home from Ethiopia. Then, at bedtime he said he didn't want Gabe to touch Mr. Elephant or George (the stuffed animals he sleeps with). Ahhh, the adjustment :)
