The Spirit of Magnolia

An infertility / adoption / pregnancy blog. After 3 MCs and IF testing (with no diagnosis) we shifted our focus to adoption. After being matched we discovered we were pregnant. After telling our agency about the pregnancy our match was severed. This is the story of our journey to parenthood.

FBI Clearance

Today is a very happy day for us -
we received FBI clearance to adopt from Peru today!
This may not sound like a big deal BUT IT IS!!! :-)
This brings us one step closer to our child.

Next step is USCIS. We're just waiting for an updated home-study from our SW and then we can submit everything to immigration. (and then wait some more .... UGH!)

Even though this process seems to be taking forever ... I am trying to celebrate each and every milestone ... and today was a doosie!

We are on cloud-9! This is such a blessing!!!
