Go on over to CarrieandMichael'sblog and send them some love - they just received their referral! They're the cutest couple and have been waiting over a year. It's an early Christmas present for them - Congrats Carrie and Michael!
Our dossier will be leaving for St. Petersburg tomorrow. It will take about a month for it to be translated then we'll be assigned a region - then a referral. It's so good to get to this point again.
Dec. 1 marked one year since we officially began this journey, signing with the first agency. The clock seems to stand still at times and fly at other times. I think the next month will fly by because of the holidays and all the activity it brings.
Just in case a referral is immediate (one can hope!), I'm starting a list of questions to ask the caretakers and doctors. If anyone has any links or suggestions regarding this, I would so appreciate it!
In October 2008, we brought home 2 amazing, crazy, fun, smart, beautiful, healthy toddlers from Russia.
Now we live to tell about it.
We welcome your words of encouragement and/or advice!
Thanks for reading!
