BBQ @ Carolyn & Adam's

Today we went to a BBQ for the PEI group that is adopting from Ethiopia. We had the pleasure of meeting up with a new couple this time around. Which is always nice to actually meet the people you are blog

It was a beautiful day for a BBQ and was much enjoyed by everyone. Thanks again to Carolyn & Adam for having us over. It was nice to have the chance to hear how everyone is getting along in their journey. There seems to be longer waiting for single and sbilings now. TJ told me on the way home that it would be nice to see someone from PEI have their referral aready. I must say that I have to agree with him.

I will keep my fingers crossed!

It's been a month since my last!

Well a lot has happened in the last month. First off our house is almost done. They expect it to be finished next saturday. We can start moving in a few things next weekend but we will take over the house fulling on Aug 1st. We both took some vacation so we can move in slowly and not be rushed to do it all in one day. With the heat lately it will be a killer to even try to do something like that. We had a few issues that came up but nothing really major. I'm just looking forward to moving into a place of our own.

On the adoption front...we got the provincial approval finally! Our homestudy took 7 months to complete. Yes...not a lie 7 months! We still have to do the photos of our house and family. We wanted to wait till our new house is finished so it will be a better idea of where our children will live. I'm just not sure what they are wanting in a family it just us or our extended family that will be an active role in our childrens lives. If anyone has any information on that it would be great. Either way we are on our way to our children.

Once we are in the new spot we will post more pictures for everyone. Sorry for the long wait in between posts. I will try to keep more on top of things.
