Exciting news!!

About this time tomorrow evening the wife and I will be arriving in Fargo, ND. Obviously that’s not the exciting part. What’s exciting is the occasion which brings us to Fargo. We will be attending an informational meeting all day Friday with our adoption agency!! Given the chaotic events that had taken place in our lives over the past eight months, the baby plans had been put on hold. But last month when we were cordially invited to participate in this Friday’s meeting to initiate our adoption, we welcomed the opportunity!

The average wait time for a baby is right around a year after completion of the home assessment, which will take place in the coming months. Given that I’ll be the big 4-0 in about fourteen months, I believe now is as good a time as any to welcome a youngster into our home. Besides, had we waited too much longer it would have gotten to the point that by the time our kid was getting out of diapers I’d be getting ready to get in to diapers.

While the application process appears to be quite daunting (and very in-depth), we believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that it will be all worth it once Baby Carlson comes home for good!

Excellent. May it be a smooth process so that you're changing diapers as soon as possible.
