A Thanksgiving to Remember

We received a referral!!!

Last Sunday, when we were in line for a buffet (which we ended up not going to) in Las Vegas, Zack checked his e-mail. I was looking over his shoulder, and I saw that he had a message from the coordinator at our adoption agency. He opened it, we read the message and glanced at the pictures of the child, but we didn't have much time to really look at it or think about it, as we had to get to the airport to catch our flight home.

We got some more information from our coordinator on Monday morning, I had some online discussions about toddler versus infant adoption with previous adopters during the day, and on Monday evening, Zack and I talked about the referral. We looked at the pictures and watched the short video that came in the e-mail, and we decided to accept!

We are hoping that this child will soon be a part of our family. Here are the details:

It's a BOY!
He'll be two at the end of December.
He's Kyrgyz and adorable.

I'm sorry I can't share any more at this point. We are only allowed to share the pictures, video, and name (which will become his middle name) with our immediate families for legal reasons.

So, now we are waiting on word of our first travel dates to meet and bond with him. We should know more soon, but it could be as early as December 15! I'll update as we know more.

Before eating Thanksgiving dinner, we surprised our parents with the video and announcement, and we have that taped. Some day, I'll be able to post that here, but it was definitely a Thanksgiving to remember!
