Oh my goodness... March, April and May... what a GREAT three months in a row! I'm so excited you are all "official."

Marie -- So glad to have you here! I'm so excited about your adoption. KUP on all the ins and outs. Are you able to have all input as mom while the boys are in the NICU?

The guardianship papers were supposed to be done last week, but likely Tuesday-then we'll be co-guardians for ten days. It doesn't sound like the family will contest, but who really knows until its all done, right? Its a lawyer delay right now, as far as I know. The babies are getting discharged at the end of next week hopefully, so the paperwork had better get done or they'll be in foster care...

I'm here! We just got a ton of paperwork from our state agencies regarding foster and foster to adopt, so we're still getting educated on this

New here. I adopted my daughter from Russia in 2004, and my son from Kazakhstan in 2007. I just published a book about my daughter's adoption called Adopting Alesia: My Crusade for My Russian Daughter. I also write a blog called The Crab Chronicles.

I look forward to reading more here.

Lacy, I missed this update, hon. I'm sorry that nothing has worked out yet. I'll be hoping and praying that you get the right call very soon.
