Tuesday, September 11, 2007


I ate some yogurt for lunch today that I could've waited to eat until after I got out of the hospital. Why, you ask? Because it wasn't due to expire until 10-05-07, that's why.

So, What's Going On In the Adoption World?

We have officially had our dossier pulled out of line. It is such a bittersweet thing to know, but I know it is all a part of God's plan. As Lyndal said, "We are not in charge here." Once our baby is born we have to do a Home Study Update, wait for approval, then send a letter requesting we be put back in line.

The CCAA website now says this: The CCAA has finished the review of the adoption application documents registered with our office before June 30, 2006.
The CCAA has finished the placement of children for the families whose adoption application documents were registered with our office before November 25, 2005.

Some of our Dillon families now have pictures of their babies! I've seen a couple of them and they are so very cute - just perfect! These families waited over two years to receive their referrals, I can't imagine their emotions at FINALLY having that picture in their hands. I'm sure they are just praising God, and all those months of planning and waiting have just melted away! I think I read where the CCAA only covered three days of LIDs for this three month period. That is incredibly slow, but again, "We are not in charge here" and neither is the CCAA!


YAY!! We are being induced on October 1. That is about 10 days before my due date. I've been induced with all of my other 10 million pregnancies (careful what I wish for) and I really like it, probably because I don't know any better :)!
Anyone with any name suggestions?

Minky Dot



We are thinking of naming our new baby girl Minky Dot. What do you think? It's sort of a family name . . .

Just kidding! That's the name of the fabric her bedding is made out of. It is so soft! She's going to think that sleeping on plain cotton sheets is like sandpaper. She will be the Princess and the Pea.

Now, come on October 10th or a few days before!

Ethan's Big Boy Bed





Ethan got a big boy bed a couple of days ago. He's doing really well in it once he settles down. He even went cold turkey on his 'uh-oh' which is his blankie he had and only sucked his thumb when he had the blankie - no more blankie and no more "suck ya thumb!"
