Well, here goes my first post.
I decided to start this blog to share our adoption with friends and family. In addition to blogging about adoption, I'll probably blog about homeschooling, quilting, crafts, family fun, and spiritual matters.
We began our journey back in September to adopt a little girl from Samara, Russia. Our first visit to meet this wonderful girl was right after Christmas in 2009. Our court date was on February 19, 2010. Now we are back home in our small town waiting out the 10 day wait. Matt and I will be flying out this Saturday, February 27 heading back to Samara. We will have regional paperwork on Monday and then FINALLY on Tuesday afternoon, March 2, we will get to experience the much anticipated "Gotcha Day". I have the "Gotcha Day" dress all ready for her. It is a beautiful pink bishop style dress with brown smocking, including ponies smocked around the neck, and of course a matching hairbow.
