Agency updates

I checked our agency's waiting families list yesterday. It looks like there are two new couples listed, and 2 couples that are now matched with expectant mothers. I'm glad that there's been some activity!

I think we're due to hear from our caseworker the first week of April (if I'm remembering right.) I hope that we hear some news at that point. It would be nice to hear that our profile has been shown.

In other news...One of the couples that is using the same agency is someone that I grew up with (well, I grew up with the wife...J and I grew up across the street from each other.) She and her husband (along with their son and both sets of their parents) are in Ethiopia right now. The couple is adopting again, and they just arrived. I keep checking their blog for updates. It's so exciting! I'm really happy for them. I know they have had a long wait. This is their blog if you want to read about their story: Journey to Ethiopia...Again!

So, that's about it. I've been trying to think of other things to write about...other adoption-related topics. If anyone has any suggestions, you can throw them out there! :)

I did find one cool thing earlier...The Hallmark Channel has web versions of their adoption stories. (I'm assuming it's a tv show, too, but maybe it's just online.) I only watched one so far, but I want to eventually watch all of them. Seems like a really good thing to check out: Hallmark Channel Adoption Stories. There's a season one and two, so there's lots to watch.

Thank you so much for posting this link. I've been watching Adoption Stories for the last hour!

You're welcome! I have only watched one so far. It's the one about Angel (the birthmom) on Season 1. She just started posting on a chatboard that I use; she was the one who mentioned Adoption Stories.

I'm glad you like it!

Wendy, is this series the same as Adoption Stories on the Discovery Health channel? The episode look different which is exciting because I've watched episode that's been on Discovery Health. I'll be watching these for sure. Thanks for the link.

Wendy said...

Karen - I'm pretty sure it's different. That's why I was so excited, too! I think I've seen every episode of the shows from Discovery Health. I dvr them and it keeps recording the same episodes, so of course I rewatch them!!

Wendy said...

Thank you! My sister was taking our picture and she caught me laughing at one of Steve's jokes. :) It's one of the pictures we ended up using in our profile, too.

The wait is hard. I go back in forth, oh it is fine, I will stay busy to..... where is my child!?

That is great that your friends are in Ethiopia.

I didnt know that Hallmark had that on their site. Thanks for the heads-up.

It's great that there is still activity going on at your agency. I'm sure you and your hubby will get matched, and what a glorious day that will be. :-D

That's so encouraging! You're getting closer each day!

Okay, I love the link. Thank you!

I get so mad that there are like 8 or 9 baby story and baby story knockoff shows, but only 1 adoption show. (I have every other Friday off and always check to see if the adoption one is one I haven't seen yet.)
