Well...I haven't had time to blog in awhile, because we have been putting together our paperwork for our agency and the homestudy. It took place tonight. 3 hours, a lot of questions, a lot of paperwork and a FANTASTIC social worker!!! Jill Kelly is AWESOME! We are so glad the initial meeting is over! We are really in the process and I feel like we are accomplishing a lot of stuff right now!
YEAH! Thanks to everyone who has helped us thus far in the process. I will post more soon! I am leaving for Gaylord, MI.
So...Jack didn't want to take a nap today, so I decided to let him lay on Uncle John's bed and watch cartoons until he fell asleep. My plan worked, he fell asleep! But when I didn't hear him talking anymore, I went to check on him and he was asleep, and HANGING HALF OFF THE BED!!!! His feet were at least 3 inches off the ground! I cracked up! How could he have fallen asleep like that? Anyways, thought it was worth sharing:)
The adoption fundraiser is coming along well! I picked out/designed invitations for it today! I have the venue reserved, menu made out. It consists of two types of food...Asian Cuisine and American Fare. Things are coming together quite well for the fundraiser. I look forward to seeing everyone there!
So...we are filling out the formal application for AIAA. They have accepted our pre-application and we are looking forward to finally feeling like the process is moving forward!
SAVE THE DATE, NOVEMBER 15th, 2008!!!!!
Did I mention to hold the date November 15th?????!!!!????? We are going to host a fundraiser, with a silent auction and after party downtown. I also scored an awesome deal with the Hilton Garden Inn for hotel rooms if anyone wants to make a night of it! I'm telling you now...SAVE THE DATE!
We are scheduling our homestudy to hopefully have it completed by the end of the month with Jill Atterbury Kelly! YEAH! I will keep everyone posted on how that goes.
We also had family photos taken by Jessica Holloway, Captured Blessings Photography, last night and I think they will turn out great!!! Jack got restless after awhile, but he's only two...guess it comes with the territory:) Check out Jessica's website for some of her phototgraphy. http://capturedblessingsphotography.com She rocks!! Thx Jess!
