After almost two years of hoping and then being devastated by loss, we have decided that adoption will be the best choice for us.
We mailed off the application to the adoption agency on Thursday and applied to the Home Study agency on Friday so we're just waiting to hear from them to see what the first official steps will be.
The boys are very excited and we're all looking forward to learning more about Chinese culture on the way to meeting our new little girl.
We will be going through the special needs program in China. This means that we are willing to nurture a child who is considered to have a special need in China. Some of those needs are very manageable in the US though. We get to choose the gender, age and needs we are willing to work with. We will spend the next six months working on our paperwork. Then it will be sent to China and then it is just a waiting game...waiting for that right little girl to come into the system. Once we find her, it will be another six months, probably, before we get to take the trip to China to pick her up. We will spend two weeks there and then bring her home and she will be all ours!
We are so excited to be able to heal our broken hearts in such a special way! We cannot wait to meet our new daughter and to watch her grow and blossom!
PS - Today is our 5th Anniversary! Happy Anniversary to us!
