Our little boy Caleb doesn't need to be told twice when Daddy tells him to go "put on your boots"! He doesn't know where he's going, doesn't know how long it'll take or how much it will cost; All he knows is Daddy asked him to go spend quality time with him and that's all it takes for him to obey. We have heard the same request from our heavenly Father concerning adoption. We are embarking on this adoption adventure with Him not knowing the where and how; All we know is God wants to spend quality time with us and teach us who He is on a deeper level.

We're "paperwork" pregnant!

Dossier is SENT!!!
This morning I ran around town like crazy. I had to photocopy our dossier 3 times, get a last minute notarized copy of my Canadian birth certificate, go to the bank and then finally mail all these papers. I told the lady at UPS to be careful. I was so nervous, it felt weird to hand over one full year of paperwork to a complete stranger. After it was all set and done I felt different; happy and excited. It felt just like when I have taken a pregnancy test and it was positive. I just wanted to scream to everyone in the store that my husband and I were gonna have another son. Don't worry I didn't! The emotions I am going through today are so strong. I never thought that adoption would be such an emotionnaly charged experience. I can't wait to meet him and kiss his little face.
So as of today we are officially "paperwork" pregnant! Our son should be home in 9 months.


  1. Congratulations, we can't wait to meet him!

  2. Félicitations!!! C'est merveilleux!!!
