Fav Foto Friday

It's a rainy Friday in May and we are SO ready for the weekend. I think someone has had an exhausting week...

PS: Tomorrow is Forever Family Day! May 16th, 2008 we successfully passed court in Ethiopia and the Ministry of Woman's Affairs stamped our last name on Ashton's documents. We did a lot of waiting and had a lot of patience and shared countless moments of frustration throughout the adoption process, but I can say with 100% certainty that it was on this day, May 16th 2008, when the two of us let out the biggest freaking collective sigh of relief possible by two sets of human lungs. For our many blogging buddies currently waiting on pins and needles for their moment to enjoy the most wonderful sigh of relief there is in the whole wide world, please know we're waiting with you and will smile with you when we read the news that your last name is now stamped on an Ethiopian Birth Certificate. The current situation will be resolved, cases will be heard and successfully passed, and that sigh of relief will be yours.

To know we are so close, but aren't quite there yet is so nerve-racking. Thanks for the encouraging words Jo. I'm so happy that you are now at your 1 year mark of Ash officially being a McGregor!!!!

Yes...lots of patience and waiting but worth every minute! Congratulations - love all these celebratory dates we have to celebrate! It's never easy during the waiting, but oh the sweet relief when it all comes together. We love you Ash - more than you can ever imagine!

That picture is super sweet- as are the ones in the post below. I loved that sequence.

Congrats, by the way, on your anniversary! Today our son turns 2 months old- I was happy to see that someone else has a reason to celebrate May 16th!!
