YES !! We have our fingerprint appt next Wednesday woohoo !! That is awesome :) I also sent in our notarized contracts -so early next week I should receive my dossier packet. Moving forward, slowly. My sw should be done with my homestudy soon. Then everything else I will be able to do myself. So much easier when you can handle things, and NOT depend on others ya know?
I have met a couple of nice families thru blogland, who also are adopting from Ethiopia and some who actually live pretty close by ! I could not imagine adopting with all the stress involved and the research required , WITHOUT the internet ! Could you imagine? Man, I would feel so lost and alone ! While adopting from Guatemala I made MANY wonderful friends. 2 of them are my closest friends even after our adoptions were done. I found Guatemala adopting families to be so warm and supportive. I am hoping to have the same experience thru Ethiopia adoptions. So cool to journey with people who really GET what you are going thru :) Unless you have been through this adoption stuff you really do not get it ;)
