It's true! The day has finally arrived, (actually some time ago)... We think we have notified everyone who needs to know, so updating the blog is now the mission.

On 23 December we had our official referral from Gladney! We received all of the vital details and photos of our adorable little baby girl. She was just shy of 3 months old at referral and we are thrilled! She is the cutest little baby girl I have ever seen (yeah, I'm not biased)...

We've returned our paperwork to make it official and now we are just waiting for our Ethiopian court date... We're painting this weekend (or was it the Ikea run?) and rapidly preparing for little Zadie (still not her real name) to come home...

To all the families that might be traveling, say hello to our little girl for us!


  1. OH MY GOODNESS! Congratulations! I'm so excited for you! I was just checking everyone's blogs this morning! We're getting SO close!!! Maybe we'll travel together... well I guess we need a referral first... :) COngratulations!!!
