paperwork and tap shoes

To say it has been a while would be an understatement. It has been over two months since I have blogged. The past months have been very full. Things are finally really moving on the adoption front. I feel really horrible, however. After we filled out the short application with Gladney they sent us the BIG-THREE-PART application. They sent this to us on March 20. I did not have a moment to begin working on it until June. That's right, it took me three months to the day to send in the first part of the application.

So, we have now sent in two of the three parts and soon we should be receiving a call to set up our home study! It is really starting to feel real. Michael and I are actually so glad we waited three months to begin the paperchase. We needed that time to decide what was best for our family and make some decisions about our adoption. We began this process thinking our child would be a baby (the younger the better). After praying and much discussion, our hearts have changed. Stay tuned...

I hope everyone is having a great summer. I will leave you with an ever-so-cute picture of my nephew, Aidan. We just finished two of our eight weeks of performing arts summer camps. He has been walking around our academy in his tap shoes all summer long. Cheryl managed to get him to pose for this pic. A true performer!
