This has been a really big weekend for us. We mailed our IAP out on Friday and watched it drive away in the Fedex Truck. The Fedex tracking system says it was delivered today @ 9:47 a.m. Yay!
We told our parents this weekend too. They are all very supportive. Of course, being parents, there are always a few questions, but just out of love Our next goal is to tell our siblings. We also received 2 phone calls from social workers who can perform our home study. Both of them seem optimistic that they can get it done fairly quickly, depending upon how quickly we can get our medical references, personal references and clearances through. At this point, I am waiting to hear from our CWA case manager to see if Ethiopia requires anything special in their home study. We also told our managers today at work. That was exciting -- of course, people still think we are nuts, but I don’t really care. But, we needed to tell them because the references will be emailed to them within a week. Everything seems to be happening so fast, but I’m sure the wait ahead will be agonizing.
