This week we received news from our adoption agency, ECFA, that we are officially waiting. All the paperwork is complete, all the background checks are clear (whew!), all the references are in, and the home study is complete. As of Thursday or Friday last week, our birth mom letter is live online. You can find it here, if you’re interested. Please feel free to share this link with anyone you feel should see it.
Amy and I went out for a nice dinner on Friday night to celebrate the news. We know this is an important milestone in the process, and yet it’s strangely intangible. We’re not pregnant (although in a sense we are), and we’re not expecting a particular child. But we are expecting, waiting. So thanks for waiting with us.
