Phase 3 update

I am currently on a 2 week vacation in PA visiting my friends and family! I am so excited to be here and am really enjoying myself so far. Patrick will join me on the 11th and then we go home together on the 18th!

Before I left home I accomplished great things with my adoption paperwork...I finished all 16 pages of my home study questions! Patrick is about 1/2 done his and our plan is to mail it out on Monday! I think we will then get our home visits scheduled but I'm not 100% sure.

We also both went and got our physicals done and are happy to report that we are both HIV negative (not that we had any doubts). Patrick is negative for TB but I will have to get my test done when I get back. It needs to be in your skin for 48 hours so they can measure any reaction you might have. So, things are moving forward and I am still excited about the whole thing.

I'm sure there will be a lull in all the excitement as we wait for almost a year to even get matched but I hope time goes fast and God gives us patience as we wait for our little one. I did the math and our little one could be conceived anytime now! It's neat to think that our little baby could be entering this world as I type.

OK, back to family fun!

So ever since you posted your first blog i've been checking back every so often (once a week!) to see if had finally posted a new entry, and you didnt! so I eventually stopped reading for a bit then I come here and I'm like 4 posts behind!
I'm so happy that things are going so well with the adoption. I'm really glad that you are adopting and I know it's going to go well. Stay patient!
