Gladney Dinner

Hi everyone. Our first week on the waiting list has been great! Last night we went to eat dinner with the NC Gladney Family Association and it was so nice. We were able to meet other parents who have either adopted through Gladney or are in the process. I think there were five adopting from Ethiopia-it was amazing and we had such a good time, we did not want to leave. It was so comforting to be able to talk to people who are going through the same things we are-excitement, anxiousness, nervousness. It was also so interesting to hear the "questions" they were getting-some of the very ones we have encountered. I hope we have made some life long friends and our children will know each other for many years. It is amazing how this experience has brought us to people and places we would have never known. I am trying to soak it all in and enjoy every minute even though I cannot wait for our referral. Our agency seems to really be cranking out the referrals lately and I hope it continues!!

We had a great day today. The boys had soccer games and W1 got a goal-W2 is a defender and stopped the other team from scoring a goal! Then we went to see "Race to Witch Mountain"-it was OK-now onto the Final Four games.

Have a great week-hopefully, next week I will find out if our CIS I171H form can be fixed to our original age bracket!
