Celebrating Small Victories

This process is nothing short of (emotionally and mentally) arduous. Therefore, I have learned we need to celebrate the mini-milestones, and yesterday was one of those moments. We received the following email:

Congratulations! Today we approved your home study, pending revisions. We have notified your social worker of the pending approval, and they are now working on making the requested revisions before sending you 3 originals of the study. Please allow at least 1 week for processing.

(Insert a myriad of details and instructions for a slew of upcoming paperwork.)

Warm regards,
"X" Early Process and Dossier Assistant

It may not seem like much, but it is another step closer to bringing home our (yet nameless) son.

It is one more check mark on a seemingly endless list.

It is one day closer to having our three boys under the same roof!

That is why we celebrate!


  1. Seeellll-a-bray-shun time, C'MON! (duh duh duh duh, duh duh duh duuuuh). Seriously, that's awesome. Every step is one step closer. And you guys are tearing through the paperwork! Also, love the new family portrait! :-)

    1. Thanks! I'm working as fast as humanly possible. Still, it seems sooooo slow. Ugh. I just want to go get him! (As you well understand) Thanks for the encouragement!
