Baby steps

Let's see...what's new?  I added an adoption timeline to the blog.  Kinda sparse right now.  I'm looking forward to getting our home study finished within the next few weeks (I hope).  We applied for passports yesterday; that definitely adds an element of reality.  We're traveling!  To China!  They should arrive in the mail in about four weeks, and we'll need to photocopy the first pages to include in our dossier. 

Adoption is gradually becoming a reality to our children, and I've greatly enjoyed overhearing their conversations and everyday play infused with the topic.   The other day S introduced me to her adopted baby (her doll).  And A created some adoption artwork, revealing a surprising grasp of the process.  (Can you figure out which part I mean?)

WOW! Amazing. I love this blog, this journey, & your take on it all. What a miracle adoption is.

very cute. I asked Kaylee over the weekend if she was worried about anything with a new sister coming...she replied, "Yes, I'm worried that God is not going to bring her here soon enough." I thought that was the cutest ever. Kids can embrace it for sure! I traveled alone with our then-8year old son for our first adoption and it was an amazing trip ( my husband was deployed in the Arabian Gulf when we received TA)...this time we're waiting for TA and he's ready to go too!

Congrats to your family for becoming a Holt family!
