I set a deadline to have all of our paperwork mailed in to the agency we are using be December 31st. I think I might be pretty close. I tried to get it all in order the weeks before Christmas because I knew the rest of the month would be pretty hopeless. I ordered our profile books a few weeks ago and they came right before Christmas. I LOVE how they turned out. I used Shutterfly.com and I knew the quality would be great since I have used them before. I probably spent four months putting that book together. I wanted it to look just right, but also show exactly how we are. There is a lot of pressure there.
I also ordered our puzzle for the Puzzle Fundraiser from Puzzle you and it should be coming in the mail any day now. I am so excited to write on the backs of the puzzle pieces of all of our amazing Generous Donors!!!! This baby is already loved beyond measure. I also can't wait to put the puzzle together. Most of you may not know how much I thoroughly enjoy putting them together. I can sit for hours at a puzzle. I will make sure to take pictures of the puzzle and the process of putting it together.
I wanted to mention the agency we have decided to use. We prayed about this and wanted to make sure we were making the right decision on which agency was going to bring us our baby. We felt strongly about using an agency and we know that there are so many great ones out there. We are using A Guardian Angel. We feel great about this agency and would recommend them to anyone.
Well we are happy that things are moving along and as the new year approaches, I am excited to think that 2015 will be the year we bring a baby home! Happy New Year everyone and we will continue to keep you all posted as we move forward with the adoption.
