I can not believe we are leaving in the morning to go to Florida. We are meeting the birth mother tomorrow night. I am very nervous about that. As of now, everything is still on. She is supposed to sign the papers Tuesday morning and then our precious little one will join our family. Then we are off to the beach while the paper work is done between Florida and Georgia. It could take 7 to 10 days.

My stomach ache has returned. I am copying the last part of the paper work needed after my 8 page personal study on myself disappeared. Abby is packed. A bag is packed for him. Five copies of our adoption package are complete. The car is half loaded. And my fly boy is at Target getting some last minute items.

We said goodbye to our dear friends today who are leaving for Montana in the morning. They will be greatly missed.

I have a feeling I will be taking my melatonin again tonight. I'll be updating from the road. Your continued prayers, of course, are still so needed and appreciated. Love to you all.

P.S. The FBI fingerprints came in Friday afternoon!

Abby's MRI and MRS went GREAT! She did it without going under and we were so proud of her for lying still that long! Her bloodwork will have to be done another time. But it was a gift to not have to sedate her! Thank you Lord.

We also had two offers last week on our house. One was for full price but was contingent on the sale of their house. Can't do that since we want another one already. Neither are going to work but we showed it again yesterday, this morning, and have someone else coming Tuesday. AND someone else who saw it last week is "supposed" to make an offer when we return. CRAZY!


  1. Don, Dawn and Abby,

    we wish you all the best as you begin this next step on of the journey to enlarge your family. What a lucky little boy.

    All our love,

    Tom, Chris, Matt and Kelley Jane (who wants me to add that she just got her ears pierced yesterday:-)
