Today was a big day! I finally got to mail my dossier (paperwork with every detail of your life) to Serbia for translation and approval. Now we wait. And wait. I am very optimistic though. I feel so strongly about this process that I can't help but think it will move quickly. It has only been 3 months since we decided to adopt. So, even 6 more months would be a normal pregnancy. Heck, at this point I would still be throwing up everyday!! =-) So, our goal is to be holding him on Christmas morning with our 2 other angels there and I'm quite sure our first angel, Braxton will be there too!
I am going to enjoy my waiting time too. It is always fun to get the nursery ready and get all the clothes washed and ready. We are reading up on Serbia and what sights to see while we are there. I want to make a nice scrapbook of our journey so Max has that forever. Our 5 year old is getting excited too. She knows "baby Max" is coming around Christmas time. I still haven't figured out how I will get the strength to leave them for 2 weeks. We'll save that worry for later!
Thanks to everyone for all your support! Saturday is our big Buddy Walk! I am so excited. We have such fun every year meeting new families and catching up with past friends! It will be a great day.

We got our approval letter from USCIS (Immigration)!!!! Hooray! We've been in the Bahamas and Orlando for the last 2 weeks. It was SO fun! The kids loved the beach and Sea World and Disney! And now we come home to such great news. We will have our Dossier together and ready to be sent to Serbia by Tuesday. Hopefully the wait will not be TOO long now. I am definitely optimistic about getting Max before Christmas!
