Our adoption referral

This is a decidedly non-scrapbooking related post, but I wanted to share that we received our adoption referral from Russia today! It's a boy, born in June of 2007. I can't share any more information publicly because of the confidentiality of the process until it's "official." We should be traveling to meet him in late April/very early May and we hope to be home in late June or early July. Alexa is very excited about her baby brother, and he already comes with an "A" name that we will likely keep.

He is still listed on the Russia databank through the end of April and could be adopted by a Russian family until then, so although we are very excited, we are not going crazy. We are also sending all his medical info and photos off to an international adoption physician for evaluation, so if something unexpected comes back from that we could end up declining the referral. But, if that happens we will know within the next week or so.

It's hard NOT to be too excited!

This is my first visit to your blog, but I wanted to say a tentative, but hopeful, CONGRATULATIONS on your referral. I'm an adoptive mom of a 16-mo-old little boy (domestic adoption... we've had him since birth) and I understand the excitement, hesitation, fear, joy... everything all wrapped in one. It's incredible the rollercoaster ride that adoption is!
