We're licensed!

After our home inspection almost 3 weeks ago, we received our license in the mail today! For what happens next, you can click here: "what happens now?". Basically, now we wait to have our profile activated, which will probably happen sometime in the next couple of days, once our adoption specialist is back in the office on Wednesday. The license is good for 4 years, but hopefully we won't have to wait that long to adopt! It's now featured prominently on our refrigerator. Hey, they said we had to display it ... but not how. It's easily visible for anyone who needs to see it!

If we get calls regarding potential matches, we'll be keeping that information private -- it's just too overwhelming, emotionally, to tell everyone & then have them follow up with us one by one, especially if the match doesn't work out. We have identified a very small group of people who we'll tell if a match is probable, so they can be prepared to help us, but otherwise, the rest of the world won't know until the birth mother has signed the documentation to terminate her parental rights. So, now, we just ask that you keep your fingers crossed for us & to keep us in your prayers!

That's just so awesome! I wouldn't post either if I were you until you were very sure.

This is a great step to overcome. I am so happy for both you and Ken. I would keep things quiet, too. This is a very emotional time and it is too hard to have to explain over and over again. Trust me, I know.

It's a hard process....but on the fridge is an awesome place to hang it.

Soon enough we'll hope for crayon drawings and little people's 'love you' notes.
