So, today we received some great adoption news from our agency. We had planned on our LOI being officially submitted on the 15th, Amy's half birthday. We were told that this would be the earliest we would be able to do this. We still cannot submit our entire dossier until Amy's 30th birthday, but 6 months out would give us time to begin the entire process. Well, today we received an email stating that our LOI would be submitted on Monday, Valentine's Day! Yeah it's only a day earlier than what we had been planning but when you're playing the biggest waiting game of your life one day is a big deal! Plus the fact that it's Valentine's Day hasn't escaped our attention either. What a sweet gift! One day closer to our sweet girl!

In other adoption news we also received the word that we will have no insurance hold ups, Margaux will be covered, no problems or worries. This is a big deal also, and a major relief to Amy and I.

Lastly, we have gotten off the bench and are fully running in the paper chase again. This time it is a massive form we have to fill out with the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS). Our pens are inked and our wrists are ready. Submission of this is not for a little while, but we may as well begin.

So, a day filled with adoption great news! Oh, and her bedroom is nearly finished (thanks Amy!) so hopefully pictures of that will be coming soon. Oh, and on an unrelated side note, since today was Friday, we had our usual Drosche Family Movie Night! Usually it involved pizza and a movie. Tonight was a little different and we began with a trip through the car wash, dinner at one of our favorite restaurants (La Finca), and the movie Secretariat. Awesome movie! I highly recommend it. Seriously, finish reading and head out to the nearest RedBox, Blockbuster, or even get on Netflix. I promise you won't be disappointed! Go on now, go get it!

All is well, enjoying our sweet news, in Drosche Land.
