We Got Mail!!


"Dear Imants and Marcie,
Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you your home study has been approved and your name is on the list of approved families waiting for a match of a child from Korea. This decision was jointly made. We will notify you when you have been matched with a child...."

I'm pretty sure that is a HUGE run on sentence, but who am I to proofread? We have finally received the letter we've been waiting for.

Basically we are now "officially" waiting. Probably no different than what you knew before, but to us this is huge. To put it in perspective, it's like I just got a positive pregnancy test. It'll be an incredibly LONG pregnancy, but at least this one can be toasted with a glass of wine. We are told the wait for a match is another 11 to 12 months. And then wishing, hoping and praying to plan our big trip BEFORE Christmas 2009!!!!

What a way to kick off the holiday weekend! CHEERS!

Congrts!!! That is wonderful news! Sorry that I haven't posted. I didn't see any updated b/c I'm an idiot and the page was said to the pierogi and kimici (spelling) page. I was wondering what was going on. Congrats!! Fingers and toes crossed for you!

Yay! Congratulations! I love how you said that this is a positive pregnancy test that can be toasted with a glass of wine. HA! Might as well eat sushi and ride a rollercoaster while you're at it.

Hi Marcie,
Don't know if you remember me...we were e-mailing back and forth about adoption some time ago. Since then, you've come a long way! Congrats on this good news and welcome to the wait!
