On Thursday, we decided to start the process to adopt a baby. I made a spreadsheet of country requirements, crossreferenced it with local agencies, and made some phone calls.
On Friday, I made an appointment with R@du to discuss Ethiopian adoption.
In a minute, I'm leaving for that appointment. I've waited close to 10 years for this; I tell myself it should be easy to wait 1-2 more, while the process happens. But I'm already anxious, and so is jc.
Anxious, a bit incredulous, and also thrilled beyond belief.
