    Default Hello, We adopted

    I dont see many people posting in here, most post are old.

    So I thought i would share my info, and if any one does have any Qs feel free to ask.

    My husband and I have adopted. We started our process in OCT 2011 with the research. Started our home study in November, Picked and signed with our agency in March. Had to Failed Matches, with in 5 weeks. Yes back to back failed matches. Then in Aug we got a call on a Saturday afternoon. There is a baby born, and we are chosen as the parents. We need to be in X to pick her up by tomorrow!!!!

    We said yes, went home, packed and had a flight, and were on a plane with in 5 hours of knowing baby bug was here. Now she is 4 mounts old, and is the most enchanting , wonderful thing in my life.

    We are now doing home study follow ups, and have 2 more left to do. In early 2013 we hope to have our finalization court date.
