We are still waiting for our new BC to come through.We are been waiting 2.5 weeks today. Here is the good news.. we haven't seen anyone wait longer then 5 weeks for it. Bad news... it is Chris and I we are talking about here... we are planning on 5 weeks and hope that it is quicker! Once we receive the BC our agency is telling us that we should plan to travel in 2 weeks. We are biting at the bit to get her home!!

We wanted to take a minute to tell everyone Happy Thanksgiving!!! Chris and I have so many things to be thankful for. We are the most thankful for Lily's birthmom. Without her and her amazing gift we wouldn't have our duaghter. We hope that everone has a wonderful holiday!!

Christmas at the Henry house

Christmas at the Henry house....

November 8, 2006

Yup that's right!! Chris and I decided that because we don't know when we are going to pick up Lily that we are going to take advantage of this time in between to get the house deep cleaned and arranged for Christmas. We are putting up the tree tonight!! I will post pics on the web site as soon as we are done. We are such goof balls!! Our boys look at us like we have lost our collective minds!!

We did receive our update yesterday we have been submitted for Lily's new birth cert. She will be Katerin Eliza HENRY!! We have to complete a name change once we get her home. It is all FINALLY coming together. Chris and I were talking last night about how GREAT this feels and how glad we are that we can enjoy this. We have been ready for her to come home since we saw her pretty face!!

I will update again very soon! Gotta get back to decking the halls!! ( Again such goof balls!!) :-)

Love ya!

WHat a beautiful family. What a Merry Christmas the TEAM HENRY will have this year. I love you Mom

We are a Family!!!!


November 3, 2006

We called today and found out that Lily's birth mom has indeed signed for the last time. We are going to be submitted on Monday to get her new birth certificate. Hopefully we will be home in the next 4-6 weeks.

Even though this is an extremely happy time Chris and I are keeping her birth mom in our thoughts. I just don't think that she will ever know how truly grateful we are to her. We wouldn't have Lily in our lives if it wasn't for this wonderful woman. As you all know music is very important in this house especially for me and there is a song that we found about adoption called '12 Angels' A verse of the song says

"The greatest gift, the greatest unknown, the greatest sacrifice, the love it took for her to place you in my arms, will we ever realize"

I wrote out the whole song on the front page. It it very tied into what we have gone through.

Through this whole process people have repeatedly told Chris and I how lucky Lily is going to be and what a great thing we have done for her to get her out of there. The reality is that adoption is very selfish. We wanted a child in our lives and this is the path laid out for us. We are the lucky ones!! We have felt pain that we wouldn't give to our worst enemy, and then experience the greatest joy all, holding our child for the first time. I feel lucky that we have chosen to do this.

I will keep on updating as I find more out.

Love you all!!

It is Official

It is Official....

November 1, 2006

Lily is insured!! LOL We able to put her on the health insurance effective today!! We are still in limbo waiting to find out if her birth mom has signed off. Today is a holiday in Guatemala (All St's Day) so we have decided to give them until tomorrow afternoon and call again. Kerry emailed us yesterday early morning stating that she will let us know when she knows something. From what we are being told from Kerry the birth mom is ok with it and ready to sign. There has been a delay in getting the paperwork completed by the attorney. The paperwork was supposed to be ready to go as of last Friday and she was to come in on Monday. This is the last critical step and until she signs Lily is not legally ours. This is VERY frustrating to say the least!

On a happy note a family from our Project Oz board went PINK yesterday. She will be leaving on Monday to pick up her son! So at least we see other families coming home!!

I will update again as soon as we hear something. Thank you all again for all of love and support through these final steps.
