Travel Date!!!

The call we have been waiting for has FINALLY come :) The Teeter Family will be flying to meet their son on October 9th, with the official meeting on October 11th. We received the news in the middle of the night last night via email and nearly dropped on the floor in excitement and anxiousness. It is really happening. We are on our way to bring our son home. Everything we have set out to do for over a year now is unfolding quickly. And at the end of it all we will have a son, a brother for Pierce and he will have a family and a home.

We have been saving a bottle of ice wine since we were married. It is not anything really special, but the sentiments behind saving it for an important day are. We told ourselves we would not open it until something really amazing happened. We adopted our son Pierce and would have opened it then, but somehow it got lost among all the moving boxes from several moves along the way. But we found it a while ago and knew that it would be opened on a special day during our second adoption. This is that day- it feels rather momentous. We are ecstatic.

So cheers to adoption. Thanks to everyone who has supported us on this journey so far. There is still a lot of work to do, but tonight we celebrate, because not long from now there will be one less orphan.
