Great News! We have submitted our application to an adoption agency! And it seems it's been processed. Tomorrow I have to call the agency and go through about a 10 minute introduction where they will ask me a bunch of questions, and I get to do the same. Then we find out what the initial fee will be and we get to set up our home study. Wow! That's a lot of progress in a small amount of time.
In other Great News everyone we have told so far that we are planning an adoption of a DS child has been super supportive. I can't begin to explain how much better that makes me feel. There is something about having crazy ideas validated by family and friends that makes it seem like it's not a big deal at all! We are planning on telling the rest of the family next weekend, because this is something we want to do in person. Stinks we couldn't do it all at once, but geography gets in the way sometimes.
So, please keep us in your prayers, we are beginning what is sure to be a long and emotional process.
