We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

Big Update!!!!!!!!!!!

Big Update!!!!!!!!!!!  All of our intial paperwork is FINALLY done and is being hand carried to our girls' country this weekend!!  Another family who is making their first trip is leaving tomorrow and they are taking our precious documents with them.  I am jumping for JOY!  Our agency has already scanned and emailed all the docs to their in country staff so they could start the translations early.  We should be officially submitted to adopt the girls this week.  YEAH!!!!!!! 

The next step is that we will get the referral from their country which will include more pictures (can't wait!), medicals and descriptions of the girls.  I want to cry just thinking about it. 

We are coming sweeties!  We are one big step closer!
