We're GOING!

Just a quick post this morning, since there's so much going on today---but I SO wanted to let you all know!

We have a referral, and we have travel dates! We're leaving in mid-September to meet our kiddo!

Ok, I was all prepared for this, but now my head is spinning and I don't know what to do. Someone help me here---what should I do next?

God is good :-)

WOOOO HOOOOO!!! When I pulled up my reader and saw you had two new posts, I knew something was up - I usually don't miss your posts since you only post every so often - I'm glad I clicked to check - Congratulations!!

Congratulations! We are also adopting with CSS and our dossier was submitted in June for a baby girl. I have been dying to hear about any news of a CSS family traveling for a girl, because things just seem to be very slow now (we adopted a baby boy from Moscow in 2008 and things were very quick).

Other things to do may include:
1. contact a doctor in Russia to evaluate your referral in September
2. check the weather in september so you can plan the right clothes to take
3. start making a list of questions for the orphanage director/caregivers to learn more about your referral

If you have more questions, don't hesitate to email me at marutzita at yahoo dot com.
