I don't have much to report today. I made the appointment for our physicals. One more step forward in the adoption process. I'm still waiting on the letter from my work regarding health insurance for the baby. I will be calling them tomorrow to see where we stand. That is the last thing I need before sending my documents to INS. So far things are moving along pretty smoothly. We are shooting for late Feb/early March for the home-study. Joe's driver's license and birth certificates are in the mail, so we can get started on his passport soon. We'll be making an appointment for our taxes sometime this week. Our agency only calls for one year of tax records and we figured we should use our most current tax returns since we made more money in '05 than in '04. It will be nice to get it out of the way early too, instead of waiting until the last minute like we usually do. All in all I feel pretty good about how things are going. I think it helps that I had an amazing weekend. I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my husband so I can serve him dinner. His new schedule sucks. At least it's only for the next 16 weeks. I'm sure it will fly by. It always does.

P.S. In case you were wondering, I have been almost pain free since my last period. I did have one nasty "episode" this weekend, but other than that I have been feeling very good. Maybe the surgery helped? Only time will tell.

Is the letter for the USCIS regarding medical insurance something new? We didn't have to provide that????

Stacey-I'm not sure if it's new or not. It's actually pretty silly because my job doesn't pay for dependent health care, so I have to get a letter from my work saying that we will pay for the baby's insurance out of my check every month, and when it will become effective. Since open enrollment is only once a year, we may have to start paying for the insurance before she even gets here. Crazy!

No, that isn't new, we just had to copy a section out of our insurance handbook stating that any child (by birth or adoption) would be covered. Yours didn't hae this section, right? We are on the same timeline, physicals next week, homestudy end of feb...woo hoo!

Congrats on starting the process. My husband and I started in early November and so far we have finished submitting all our paperwork to our agency and completed our homestudy. Now we need to get fingerprints taken. It seems like it will take forever, but one day it will be worth it! Best of luck.
