Rah rah, IRS!

We are loving the IRS tonight--that's a new one, huh?  They actually sent our docs pretty darned quickly, which is awesome as it is the last document we need for our homestudy!!  YAHOO!!  So I'm sending in those docs tomorrow, and hopefully we can get our home visit on the books.  Not looking forward to that one little bit, I must say, but it's one more enormous hoop to jump through in this adventure. 

We are now connected to the WACAP message boards, and it's fascinating to see questions and answers of those who are much farther along in the process than us, especially those getting ready to travel.  It seems just so far away; it's almost more of a theoretical idea, that we will travel to Africa (twice).  Yet there are people, right now, who have pictures of their babies and are packing clothes, formula and diapers, finalizing their airline tickets and researching where to get their morning coffee (a lot of ET adoptive families are from Seattle :-)  It's so incredibly encouraging and just makes us want to celebrate each little step along the way, including finishing our homestudy documents.  Bring on the champagne!


  1. Wow, that was fast. Good Luck,

  2. Yay!!!! Congratulations you guys! AND, I'm sure that you guys are going to do great with the home study :)

  3. That's outstanding! So excited for you both. Seriously let us know if we can do anything to help.
