The Letter

We returned home from work yesterday with an envelope in our mailbox from our adoption agency. I assumed it was a request for some sort of payment. We tend to get those often. And it was . . . BUT it also included a letter. Basically the letter said our home study has been completed and we have been approved for adoption. So now we know that my fingerprints have come through and we are cleared. We hugged and kissed and I got all teary-eyed . . . again. This means we are officially in the pool of waiting families. So it could be any day . . . literally. It’s a wonderful feeling to be finished with our portion and we can just wait on God to bring us our child.

So last night, after a celebration dinner at Alfredo’s, we put together the nursery. The furniture just happened to come in this week (good timing!) and we haven’t had time to work on it. So as of last night, the nursery is somewhat ready. I will post pictures later this weekend.

Congrats Melodie! I'm so happy for you guys. I saw your page through April's. It's been so interesting to read about your journey. My sister and her husband are beginning their own journey in adoption and are very excited. I will be praying for you guys as God continues to bless.
