This started out as a blog about our domestic adoption. So all of the older posts are about that journey. It was an interesting one, and it led us to our son, Jacob. My dream since I was a little girl was typical of most little girls. I wanted to get married, and have children and be a stay at home Mom. Although, not a very popular choice for a profession now a day, I find it very rewarding. As a matter of fact, every day is an adventure! I've been told personally that the stay at home Mom profession isn't 'work', but spend a day with me and you'll see just how much 'work' it is!!! It's blessed work!

Well, we returned the changes we wanted for our profile and send the activation money, so we thought that we would be active last Monday when we went on vacation. However, the agency called us and said that they needed to approve the final profile then they would send us a form to notarize and sign and then we would be active. We haven't heard back from them yet...7 days and counting!!!!!! They technically have 14 business days to complete it, so we wait. We'll let you know when we are officially active! Keep praying! =)

Birth Mother's Day

I received an email from our agency this past week that said that the Saturday before Mother's Day is called "Birth Mother's Day". I wrote a little note to our future birth mother and will include it in the photo/scrap book that we plan on giving her at the hospital when our baby is born.

I didn't feel near as bad this year with Mother's Day as I have in the past. I know that we have done all we can this year and that this will probably be the last year that I won't be a Mom. We are praying that way anyway...thank you for praying with us for it! =)

An email from our media specialist!

This came in our email this afternoon! yay!!!!!!

"Dear Roxanne and John,

Your adoptive family profile information has been reviewed by a Media Specialist and approved. Your profile information is complete and a Media Specialist may now begin designing your profile.

Once a Media Specialist has completed your profile, an Adoption Specialist will proof it, make suggested changes, and it will then be e-mailed to you by the Media Specialist. Any changes that you would like to make upon reviewing the proof should be submitted to the Media Specialist.

The proof will be e-mailed to you within approximately 14 business days as an attached PDF file, which opens with Adobe Acrobat Reader (free download at www.adobe.com). This allows you to see the profile in color and you may e-mail back any changes, etc. "

So they don't need anything else from us to complete it!!!! Can't wait until they get back to us. I'll see if I can't post the pdf when we get it! Thanks everyone for your prayers!!!!!
