Something pretty neat happened this past weekend

Faye and I met some new friends this past weekend, their names are Kurt and Jill (sorry don't know their last names) who are also in the process of adopting a new baby from China. Kurt and Jill are the first people that I have met that are going through and know what we are talking about when we speak about the adoption. What a relief it was to finally meet some people that actually know what it is that we are going through and to have the same hopes and fears that Faye and I are sharing. Faye and I hope to go to china with them but this may be a problem because they are approx. 5 weeks ahead of us in the adoption process. I hope they get to go as soon as possible and I hope we get to go as soon as possible if we can't go together. They were a lot of fun to have dinner with and I hope we do it again as soon as possible.

The wait is terrible

Ever look forward to something and can't wait until it gets here??? Well multiply that by 10 and you might have just a little idea of what it is that I am going through. This adoption is huge and I can't wait to hold that child in my arms for the first time. I see all my friends with kids and to tell you the honest truth I am jealous. They always say just borrow mine and you will change your mind, well this is different, they aren't mine. We have about 5 - 6 months left on our journey to parenthood and we are both looking foward to it but with nervous curiousity, but it will be here before we know it. Thanks to all the support our family and friends have given us, it really means a lot.
