All Set Up!

Good news today!

We updated our Home Study (again) and I emailed the people at RR to see if they received our commitment documents. They did! Our FSP is now up and running and we have officially begun trying to raise money to bring Sterling home!

We are super excited. I've been very bored with nothing left to do on my end since we mailed our commitment documents. Then today I get a nice long email telling me all sorts of things to begin! Hooray - no more sitting and being bored!

Off to begin the stuff on the list...

What a weekend!

This weekend we made the biggest decision of our lives; the decision to become parents. We've officially committed to adopt Sterling!

Our little man is 4 years old, has Down Syndrome and epilepsy and partial atrophy of one optic nerve. We are VERY excited to be on this ride.

In just 3 short days we've accomplished a lot. We've committed to adopting Sterling through Reece's Rainbow, we've updated our Home Study for an international adoption, we've notified our Priest of our intentions, and we've set up some fundraising efforts.

We know it's going to be a long ride - but we sure hope it goes by fast!
