Here's a cute picture of the kids enjoying game night with Papi. In other news:), we finally have our I-171 approved from USCIS, which in layman's terms means we are approved by US immigration to adopt from Ethiopia!! Our paperwork will be sent to our agency, they will certify a couple of more papers, and it will be sent off to Ethiopia to be translated and presented! Our agency uses the date on our I-171 as our official "waiting" date, so although we have been in the process for months gathering paperwork and finishing the homestudy, etc, February 25h, 2010 officially begins our journey! We are requesting a little boy under 3 and we assume it will be about a year until we travel. International Adoption is not as predictable as a normal gestation:), but at least we are "paper pregnant" and the legwork is behind us!
