- initial adoption application
- doctor's approval letters
- printed photos of us
- padded mailer
i feel like putting the application in the mail box is going to feel like getting a positive pregnancy test. i remember talking with will last thanksgiving. we were standing in his parent's yard discussing our Christmas letter, where we were announcing the plans for preparedness in adoption for 2011. we talked about how open we'd be with family and friends so as to not deprive ourselves of the feelings and support that expectant parents have all along the way. i do not think either one of us dreamed how not cheated we'd feel by this process, and how much more amazing we feel right now than we ever hoped we could.
so much to be thankful for this thanksgiving.
