In The Meantime

Yes, the waiting process is very hard, but as we've said, we try to keep busy.  I wanted to follow up the serious posts with a few of the fun things we've been up to.  Some families wait years before matching or finalizing an adoption with their child.  We have no clue what the future holds for us, we hope very much that we will not have to wait long, but in the meantime, we have to go on with our lives and stay sane by doing what we do best.  We love our jobs, we are ambitious people with an entrepreneurial spirit.
In November and December we worked very hard getting a new photography studio ready for the new year.  We kept it a secret from our friends and family and revealed it on Thanksgiving!  Adrienne celebrated her birthday with a Grand Opening in January! Check it out!

Of course we love the holidays.  We decorated our tree and our family room.  Unfortunately the weather changed so quickly that we never got our outdoor lights up.  Our Christmas tree may or may not still be up in our front window.  Adrienne made sure to watch all the holiday classics on TV - her favorite being White Christmas.  Will and his comedy group put up a hilarious Christmas sketch show called "Waiting Up."  Every night was sold out!  We got these cute mugs from Adrienne's cousin.

We went to the Justin Timberlake concert in December as well.  Everything is better with JT, am I right? 
We also just got back from a ski trip for Will's work.  Will is the adventurous one of the two of us.  He did well skiing the slopes, Adrienne took the introductory course and was just happy to not fall!

We are planning a trip for this spring.  We've gotten tickets for one of Adrienne's favorite bands, Nickel Creek, and hope to make a vacation out of the trip to Chicago!!

As always, we are hoping for a call or a contact from the right person who is open, ready, and willing to help us complete our family.  We hope it happens sooner rather than later.  Every day we watch other people parent, some well, and some not so well, and we get more and more eager for our chance.  We think we can do a pretty good job.  (The state of Indiana concurs.)  We just want to be given a chance to do our best.
