Asauer, the link didn't work, which is odd because I googled the group you're talking about and the URL looks to be right...

For an update on us: On August 10th we were referred the most adorable little boy on all of Ethiopia! He'll be 2 in mid-November, and we're praying he's home by his birthday (though given the court closure we aren't sure that'll be the case). His name is Tariku, and we'll be calling him Paxton. We're keeping both his first and last names as his two middle names, so that if he chooses to go by them he can legally do so. We're trying not to freak our over this leg of waiting. There's waiting to get on the "list", then waiting for a referral once you're on it, then waiting for the travel date, and then those last few weeks of waiting to travel, while running around doing everything. We're so close now! We just need that travel date! Maybe in a month or so, once the courts have reopened, we'll hear something.

Good luck everyone! Don't forget to update and let us know what's going on with you and/or your adoptions, even if absolutely nothing has gone on lately

Megan,

How exciting that you could be leaving in the next few months to go get your son.

I am Samantha, single mom to Biset. I adopted her from Ethiopia just over a year ago. We live in Durham. I am not new to this forum or the adoption world by any means but I just noticed this thread. I am planning our second annual Ethiopian adopters picnic for later this month. It will be held in Raleigh.

I hope everyone's adoptions are going smoothly!
Samantha

We're ecstatic right now! We just got our travel email! Paxton is our SON!!!!!

I'm in total shock, and I just have to scream to the world about this! We'll be with him on his birthday!!!!

Samantha: I can't wait to join in on the Ethiopia Adoption Group's festivities with Pax. I feel bad I haven't been doing anything with you all really, but now I feel the need to get in touch with everyone and say "OMG, help me, I just realized I have no clue what I'm doing!" It's nice to know there's a big support group in the area!

-Megan

Wow, been pretty quiet around these parts hasn't it? Pax has been home almost 10 months now, doing great, and we're planning to start up a second adoption. What's up with everyone else?

Hi everyone. I just found these boards. I guess of all the NC areas, Raleigh is the closest to us. We live in Farmville, so about an hour east of Raleigh. My husband and I have been married for 6 years and we have 2 sons. We're hoping to add to our family with more biological children as well as adoptive children. We are in a wait and see stage right now with a cousin of mine who is young, unmarried, and pregnant. We are hoping that if she chooses adoption for her daughter, that she will place her with my husband and I.

Nice to meet everyone!

Thanks for the response. We are just sending in our papers for the homestudy this week. We are excited to start this journey, but also nervous after reading about some of the scammers out there. Did you use an agency out of TX to be matched with your boys?
