Well we made it through Thanksgiving and football season. Oh my poor Cowboys. Better luck next year!
I don't have much news at this point. Joel and I are in the process of filling out some paperwork so we can have a consultation with lawyers Bado & Bado. We were referred to them by a friend who just recently had their adoption finalized. I'm excited to meet with them, they seem very upfront and no-nonsense, but at the same time very kind and understanding. The "adoption worker" advised me that we should start our Dear Birth Mother letter and a scrapbook that will show prospective birth mothers a little bit about us, our family, and our friends. For someone who loves to take pictures you would think scrapbooking would be easy for me. HA! I never could get the hang of it, but I've discovered a digital scrapbooking program and I love it! I can use digital copies of my pictures and I don't have to cut up anything. Now, I just have to go through all the hundreds of pictures I've taken over the last few years. Ugh. That could prove to be quite a challenge.
