Awww, thanks Katie!

Things are going great! We have a meeting with our adoption agency today. It's kind of funny because they want us to sit down and go over what kind of relationship we want to have now and in the future. Well, we are way past that! It will be interesting to see what our SW's think about our relationship.

We are also going to hopefully get things sorted out with the tribal stuff, go over the birthplan and also write up our openness agreement.

Oh, and I'm really excited for Shantel, because through this whole process she has also found her birthfamily! With the contact she has had with her tribe, she has now talked with a lot of her maternal birthfamily and is hoping to meet some of them soon! It's incredible what this adoption process has brought into all of our lives.

Thanks for checking up on me.. I stalk you ladies daily I'll let you know how our meeting today goes!

So So awesome!!!! What a great experience not only for you, but for Shantel as well. I am so beyond happy for you. And from a Birth Mothers perspective, so happy that Shantel found you guys, a wonderful, caring couple who won't push her out of her birth child's life. So so awesome

Thank you for the update!

We just got home from a meeting with our social worker and Shantel and her social worker. We have been waiting what seems like FOREVER for them to figure out the tribal things....


WE GOT APPROVAL!!!!!



It was the only thing really hanging over our heads and I know it's been stressing Shantel out a lot. She had told me several times she hopes that they would choose to not intervene so that we wouldn't end up having to go to court and spending A LOT more money to do so. BUT, we got to call there today and the enrollment lady said she is 99.95% sure that the tribe is going to not intervene and let Shantel make whatever placement she chooses... which is of course US!!!

I'm so flipping excited and just so incredibly happy to have that part out of the way. Now, I feel a lot more confident going into this *knowing* that we will have a baby girl in our home to hold and love by the holidays...

Thanks for opening up your arms and supporting me through this!
