Our second 5 hour adoption class was today. The topics I thought were really great and useful to us with not only our forthcoming adopted girls, but with our existing boys. Really the classes are half parenting and half adopting a different culture and just plain adoption related topics. Really great though, I thought. I'm always interested in learning better ways to do things that you do on a daily basis!!
We were happy to see our new friends Lory and Dave and also Justin who we found are all at the same stage with the same agency. We got a kick out of thinking how in a years time, we will be meeting up with 4 Ethiopian children in tow. Hard to imagine right now since we feel like it is so far off in the future. We are all 3 waiting for our referrals.....it could be next week or next month. We have no idea. But it'll be good when it does happen. We sit each day on pins and needles wondering when our children will be "found" and what will they be like? What are their personalities? Will they adjust well? So many unanswered questions...all to be answered with a simple call from our agency. Who will get the call first? Wow! So exciting.
