Baby its cold inside...

Last night I started getting cold, like freezing cold...but I thought maybe it was because I had been just sitting too long on the couch looking at adoption blogs. So I turned the heat up a bit. This morning this is what I saw..

our inside temp was in the 50's was soo cold.  All I wanted to do was stay in bed. Even poor Jake was shivering so I had to put his fleece coat on too.


SO we called our home warranty people and about 7 hours later :) they came to fix it

Apparently the previous owner left something on and the motor in our heater rusted and stopped working. . Thank goodness he was able to come out and fix it because it is snowing!!

My favorite obsession

So I must confess I have an obsession. There is something called the Gladney FBI. It is an unofficial list of some of the families (and their blogs) who are adopting from Ethiopia through Gladney.It is broken down into categories of who is working on their paper work, waiting for a referral (that is where we are), who has gotten their referral and finally who has passed court. I admit to checking this website several times a day and reading the many blogs for updates. It is so exciting to see families matched with their child and connecting with others who are going through the process. People have been so encouraging.

So Matt and I are in the waiting category and it tells you when the family was placed on the waitlist and what they are requesting (boy, girl, infant, siblings etc.) It is so exciting to see our name move up closer and closer to the top of the list, even though we have a long way to the top. Recently families have been getting infant referrals at 6-7 months AHHH!! Hopefully they will keep coming that quickly and baby E will be here by summer time!
