December 10, 2005

Today, we're experimenting with setting up a blog page for our trip to China to get Kate. Most of you are aware of the journey thus far, our decision to adopt a little girl from China, the paperwork and the classes and the months of anticipation. The Chinese government accepted our application for adoption on July 21. We anticipate that we'll get the referral (in other words know who the little girl is) sometime in January, and then travel to China to get her sometime in March. But there are no guarantees; could be earlier, could be later.

The most progress here since the application was complete has been to the nursery. It took me several months to get my things organized and out of the room. Christi and her Mom and our friend Duncan recently painted. And Christi and her Mom then added a border. We've been moving furniture in and it's almost ready.
