David and I attended our first Adoption Orientation a few nights ago...and to say it was fabulous, is well, an understatement! It is almost unreal to think that within a year or a year and half, we could have our very own baby...complete with a sweet nursery, late night feedings, coos, cries, onesies and burb cloths...sounds like HEAVEN to me!!!
I really had an overwhelming feeling that our dreams are just around the corner. It's been a long time since I've had this confidence...and it feels so good.
We had our social worker over tonight to finalize our update of our Home Study, since it's already been a year since we obtained it. We asked her several questions and again had a great feeling that our reality will soon involve a baby.
Our next steps are to put in our applications with a few agencies...we already have a few picked out. AND start to work on our Life Books. I plan on visiting Shutterfly this weekend to get started.
It's never felt better to take the next step than it does right now!
