Bad News

Bad news.... Andrew will not be home in March. The social worker called and Andrew did not make the March list of passport approvals. Darn Korean Goverment! Good news, I guess its good news?? Andrew will be on the April flight. I guess we must be right on the cut off line for them to be so confident that we will see him in April. Moreover, I am disappointed we will not get to celebrate his first birthday together and we will miss another month of milestones.

Baby Shower

As most of you know, probably long before I did. My family totally pulled one over on me today and threw a surprise baby shower. You got me good too, I had no idea. Looking back there were many clues but I was totally oblivious.

Thank you Angie, Mom, Dad & Matt for the great day. I really enjoyed myself and hope everyone else did too.

I am so grateful that Andrew will have so many family & friends to welcome him, and help him through the difficult transition ahead.

Love you all!

US Olympian Toby Dawson just won a bronze medal. He was adopted from Korea when he was 3 years old.

Not in February

Well, the Korean Government issued the February passports and our Andrew was not included. In January, 16 passports were issued and so far it looks like only 3 passports were issued this month. Unfortunately, no one knows the method to their madness.

I guess we will just have to be patient and wait until March to see if we make "the cut".

Last night we tasted KimChi for the first time. KimChi is Korean’s best known food and is served at almost every meal. It consists of fermented cabbage, complemented by salted fish and other seasonings. Needless to say it has a unique fiery taste. One bite satisfied my desire but Matt had seconds.

Care Package

Another day has passed and still no word. I am becoming desperate for information. I am such an organized person and it’s driving me crazy not being able to plan the next 2 months. It’s like being pregnant and not having any idea what day you are due. AHHHH!!!
In an effort to keep my sanity I delivered a care package to the agency today. At least I can send Andrew a gift. Sydney picked out a bunch of little things at Marcs and colored him a picture of Blues Clues. I also included some gourmet coffee and a letter for his foster mom. I put another disposable camera in there too. I sent one back in December too hopefully, his foster mom and used it up by now.

Maybe tomorrow will bring good news….

Rumor has it…..

Our adoption agency has a message board for their families adopting from Korea. It is wonderful group of parents in all stages of adoption; from application to veteran families who have adopted several Korean children.

According to the board chatter, the list of babies arriving in February will be released by the end of next week. HOW EXCITING!! I am trying not to get my hopes up because we are on the bubble. There is a chance we could be included in the February arrivals but more likely the March group.
