It's a Girl!!

That's right!! We have been matched with a beautiful little girl! 

Needless to say, the three of us are thrilled.  Now we wait for a first trip to go see her and give her hugs. 

Her birthday is coming up later this month.  It would be awesome to be there with her...but we fear that travel won't happen that fast.  In any event, now we know who our little one is and we can further prepare our hearts and home.

p.s.  When we told K it was a girl, she jumped up and down and said "Yay! I don't like boys anyway."

I am overdue to post something, but there have been no developments on the adoption front.  We have been waiting for some time, so it must happen soon, right?  Klaudia is looking forward to becoming a big sister.  We are thrilled with anticipation to see the face of our next child.  And we are excited to go to Poland again. 

All in due time I suppose.  It is never on your own timing, is it? 

I wish there was something we could do in the meantime (i.e., get a room ready, get clothes, etc.).  But not knowing age and sex is a bit of a challenge to that.  We could always work on some Polish. 

For now, we continue to enjoy our days as a family of three.  We go to work, school, we have made some commitments to be healthier, we are playing lots outside, we are considering looking for a newer/bigger house, and we are super excited for our summer vacation to Wisconsin, including Lake Geneva and then Polish Fest in Milwaukee.  Underlying everything we do though is the thought that our little one is there, somewhere, in Poland.

2012? How did that happen?

Hi all! I have nothing profound, cute, witty, or even informational to post. But I just wanted to say HI and Happy New Year!! We are still here, and still awaiting being matched with Klaudia's little bro or sis.

The holidays and 4th birthday were great -- a very busy time! Klaudia is all 4 year old now, and we are impressed and amazed every day at her growth, wit, and plain old cuteness. I know everyone thinks their child is the most amazing child, but mine really is. ;-)

Here is a photo of K at her school holiday program, and a photo the morning of her 4th birthday.
