Thank You!

We have been completely showered by everyone's generosity, encouragement, support and...presents!

Our close friends threw us a wonderful party this past weekend. It was a great time to celebrate our soon arrival. They even had Klaudia's pictures in a slideshow on the TV. What shower can you go to that has pictures already?!

Before that, we had two other wonderful showers. One with family, and one with my friends and work peeps.

Klaudia's room is all ready for her now, and so are we! She has more stuff than she will ever know what to do with. We will introduce these things to her a bit slowly. But we are set for great educational toys, books, clothes, and other cute things.

So many have expressed their excitement. It means a lot to us. It has been a difficult road, and the time for happiness and excitement is finally here. It also helps get us through these last weeks while we wait for a final travel date.

Speaking of time...we do not yet have our date to travel back to Poland to get Klaudia. We are hopeful that it will be sometime this month. If not, we will have to get an extension on our immigration form. It wouldn't be the most horrible thing to do, but we would need an updated homestudy and to redo a couple forms. At this point I don't mind the paperwork. I just don't want to wait any longer to get her!

Since this Blog title is "Thank You" - I need to give our biggest thanks to our parents. Throughout our entire adoption journey our parents have been supportive, interested, available and excited. How fortunate are we? And how wonderful for Klaudia to come to a family with such great grandparents. :)

Stay tuned for a travel date.

Thrilled to hear you had the showers. You have a wonderful supportive group around you. It'll be very important when you bring her back!

I know what you mean about thanking people! We have been blessed in abundance as well! God is good! Showers sound like fun! Did you get some neat things? Also, I can hardly believe our kids are only 2 days apart. How neat is that?!
