2 weeks

That's how long it's been since our dossier was approved and forwarded onto the orphanage director. Every day I wake up wondering if today will be the day and although he won't admit it, I know my other half is getting excited too. Today I completed an application for an interest free loan specifically for adoption costs. So much money and I don't even really flinch like I used to when I fill these things out! I know we have debt, but we are so accustomed to living as poor grad students that now school is over and we're earning money, we'll still have to be paying this off yet our lifestyle won't take a hit. We'll just keep eating ramon, playing outside and going to the library. We are so happy to do this and I love that we don't need "stuff" to be entertained or content. So, no word. As I keep saying, "You'll know when we know!" I am praying that we have some word before the end of the week so that Ryan can figure out his summer work plans.


  1. Thanks for the tip on a van! Everyone says they love their Odysseys but we cannot find one in opur price range :( We re currently looking at Quests and Sedonas so we will see. To funny, we to are poor graduate students. I just finished my PhD and my husband is still at work on his. We may never pay off those school loans but oh well, one thing at a time.


  2. The library is indeed wonderful entertainment for the poor, or frugal. It's like Blockbuster, Barnes and Noble, and iTunes all for free!
