not much going on

I haven't posted in a LONG time, but other than work, nothing much has been going on. We are still waiting on our dossier to be submitted. Word has been going around that the yearly quota of American dossiers has been met for 2007, but I haven't seen anything that proves the rumor is true. So until then, we are holding out hope. If it turns out to be true, then we'll have to roll with the punches :) Obviously we want to travel as soon as possible, and we know that we'll be travelling when we are supposed to travel. It is difficult to keep your spirits up, but we are doing the best we can!

Work has been going well - it's busy, so that helps keep my mind off things regarding the adoption. I am working on the 2008 budget right now, and that's quite a challenge!

We have been getting the child's room ready. I am so excited to see it all come together. The bedding is dogs, so that's the theme we're going with. I saw the bedding on amazon and just fell in love with it!

The dogs are doing well. Yesterday afternoon Katie ripped out her toenail at the base. Talk about a mess!! She tracked blood all through the house, but I think it is all cleaned up now. I took her to the vet this morning, and they said she'll be fine with an antibiotic.

We'll keep you up-to-date if we hear any news (good or bad)...

I just found your blog after checking in on Ukrainian Angels. We traveled to Ukraine and adopted a little boy (age 3) this summer. We returned to the U.S. 9/4/07. We have a photo of him posted under Kahler family photos.

We live in the Midwest as well, just outside Chicago. Feel free to email me if you have any questions or if you just want to chat. When we were in Ukraine it was really helpful to have someone to talk with who had been-there, done-that. The yahoo group was really helpful.

Best of luck to you!
