The Moon, The Bank & The List...history

History this week in our world...

July 16, 1969: The world watched in anticipation as three men were hurtled skyward in a rocket bound for the moon. more at National Geographic

Are they the cutest twins EVER???
July 16, 2009: Our very grown-up seven year old nephews have a meeting at their local bank to open personal bank accounts with their own money. (well done mommy!) And you can see their little social security cards in front of their loot.
Notice the two chairs opposite the bank rep; they're sitting in only one.

July 10, 2009: So yes - as I posted very quickly last week, we are officially on wait list.

In the adoption world, the email from your caseworker with the subject line entitled: "You are on Wait List!!!!" is synonymous with a positive pregnancy test. It is happening folks! A baby son is imminent. A wave of excitement has filled us both while simultaneously, every fear you can imagine shoots through our entire being. Oh boy.

When I started this blog, I wondered if I would have anything to say during this waiting period or if there would be a nine month lull until our travel time. Based solely on the emotions, thoughts, discussions, research findings and comments from friends & family over the past six days, I can confirm there will be no lulls in our future.


  1. Congratulations on being on waitlist!! What an exciting time!!

  2. Congrats! We are just in front of you on the list. I think you pretty much summed it up with the "positive Pregnancy test" statement. I look forward to seeing how all of this plays out in the near future!

  3. i'm scared too. my mom and sis have started plans for a baby shower for us. holy crap! i think that means we're having a baby :-)

  4. Congrats on being WAITLISTED. We are getting close too. WAITING TO WAIT. Adoption as I have said before is NOT for whimps! ALL THE BEST!
