It has been a while since I last wrote, but things have been somewhat uneventful until now. Sam and I have selected our adoption agency! We have decided to go with Crossroads adoption which is a local agency in Edina. We have submitted our 24 page application, which we are told is only 1% of the total paperwork! We are currently deciding between Ethiopia adoption and Domestic. If we choose Ethiopia, we would have to go through a seperate placement agency. We expect the total process to take between 10 and 18 months. We had our first edcuational meeting this evening. Our next step is completing more paperwork and then getting an apt. set up with our adoption counselor! It feels good to have the ball rolling! Sam and I like to put this phase of adoption in pregnancy terms by saying 'we are starting to try to get pregnant.' In three months we hope to have our homestudy completed which will be 'we are pregnant'!
