Thanks for the nice welcome.
DH and I are working with a small agency in our town in the great midwestern US. We were accepted into their program 13 months ago, took classes, read books, had lots of counseling, completed our homestudy then got our profile into their book. From the time we got into their book, it was 9 months of waiting. Ironic, eh?
We didn't have to do anything but wait. The birth parents contacted the agency to make an adoption plan, they had several hours of counseling and then chose us from the book. Our adoption is very open and they are truly an amazing couple.
