Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

We spent Christmas Eve at Shawn's parents house. 12 grownups, 2 ten year olds, 1 8 yo,1 tween, and 2 little ones almost 1 year old.
It was a blast, chaotic, and we answered at least 6 times,"no we don't have a referral yet."
To all of them the process is slow, to us, it seems like it went pretty fast to be on the referral list.
Everyone is so ready for us to get our little one's. (We are too!!) Tomorrow we will get to answer the question all over again, when we we go to my parents for Christmas.

One of the topics at Shawn's parents house was, Has anyone regifted, and got caught??
So, anyone out there want to fess up? I know you're out there.....

Hoping all have a very Merry Christmas!!
Lisa : )

So, my husband NEVER dreams, that he can remember anyway.....
This morning he told me he had a dream last night!
He dreamt that 2 little girls ages 1 and 3 were flown TO us. He doesn't remember why we didn' t go get them. He said all that could do was cry and cry. I asked him it was because i was SO happy, and he said " i don't know, you wouldn't quit bawling to find out!"

When we finally do get our little ones, I'm sure they will be tears of happiness!

Finally Started a Blog!

So, we are finally creating a blog, as we wait for our referral! We started our journey in June of 2007 after being accepted with CHI. We are wanting to adopt a sibling group of two little ones!
Our dossier arrived in Ethiopia December 11th 2007.

We are so excited to be at this point in our journey! All of the paperwork for now, is finished.
