New wallpaper

We've updated the blog to reflect the up coming changes in our life- a daughter. I love the new pink wallpaper. It's such a dramatic change from the blue we have all over the house.

On the adoption front- our dossier made it to Ethiopia.
Here's what will be happening over the next few months:
Our dossier will be translated to Amharic.

We'll receive an "on deck" e-mail from our agency when we are getting close to receiving a referral.
We anticipate a referral in 5-7 months based on our family coordinator's best guess.
Once we receive and accept a referral we will wait for our court date to be assigned.
We will fly to Ethiopia for the court date and then fly home.
We will return to Ethiopia several weeks after the court date to pick up our daughter!

What cool news! Congratulations to you guys! (High marks on keeping it a secret for so long...don't know if I'd have that kind of restraint.) Looking forward to following your journey. I can completely sympathize with you on the pink too.

Oh, and I love Henry's fashion sense. Abel is very independent too...polar opposite of Eben who is only too happy to allow me to do everything for him. :) However, both of my boys sport ties with regular shirts. I see they are in good company with Henry.
