We are on "The List"

We are so excited, we found our we are # 153 on the waiting list. The last couple that received their referral took about 9 1/2 months . We are hoping by January we will have a referral. It's hard because we find ourselves wanting to buy things for John. We are planning to start painting his room soon. I already have his bedding and cannot wait to get his room finished.

We have our approval!!!

Today we received our I-171. It only took about 4 1/2 weeks. We were not expecting for a few more weeks. It can take up to 10 weeks. It's Friday afternoon so first thing on Monday I will fax to Sara. Monday morning we will officially be on "The List". This is one step closer to bringing our son home.

Our First Gift!

We have just received our first gift for our son (Thanks Aunt Debbie and Uncle Jeff!). As you can see from the picture, we have decided to name him John Edward Maynard. We are in the process of picking out colors and furniture to put in his bedroom. Man, there are a million ideas that we have and it is so hard to settle on one. Maybe we will just do them all! In all seriousness, we will post pictures of his room and everything as soon as we are able to get it completed. We'll keep you posted.
