Here's a picture of our Mother's Day with my mom, brother & sister.

Dustin's Aunt Sandy sent us the cutest little piggy bank as a baby shower gift. The best part of the gift was on the outside of the envelope! The card was addressed like this:

Pebble (Little Stone)

At first I was like "who the heck is Pebble?" but then I got it! How cute!!! This is the cutest nickname we've heard and we love it. Our little Stone!

Thanks Aunt Sandy & Family!!!

Consulate Update

We've received word that the Consulate office is back from hiatus, but there is a crazy backlog of over 100 dossiers. The good news is that they are reviewing and releasing dossiers. Keeping our fingers crossed that our dossier is at the top of the pile!

No news...

It's May 1st and still no news. I just want to know where our paperwork is...I should've embedded a lo-jack device in our dossier. We don't want to call our Program Coordinator everyday and be "that crazy couple"...but it's starting to eat at us! Sometimes it seems like we are getting closer, but it still feels so far away.

Hopefully we will hear something soon.

I went to a brunch last weekend with other ladies who are approved for adoption and waiting. It was really neat to meet people that are literally going through the same things that we are. I was the only one adopting from Kaz that was there. Some people have been waiting for over 2 years and it makes me so grateful that we are not in the same boat.

Hopefully we'll have some news to share soon.
