Sorry I haven't been around. I've been playing with the twins all week and, when they weren't around, doing shit around the house and running crazy errands. OMG - my friends made themselves some beautiful babies! They are so well behaved and so sweet. Last night I was feeding the little boy and he was breaking my heart. Just grabbed my finger and held it against his little face as he drank his bottle. My friends are very cool and let Marc and I do things that other friends have never thought to let us do like put them into their carseat. Hey - we need all of the practice we can get! Speaking of Dylan... we got a new photo and he's laughing his beautiful little butt off. He's up to 14.2lbs and is just growing like a weed. I miss him so much it hurts. Imagine that... missing someone you've never met. Bonding with someone you've never spoken to or even touched. This boy has touched me - he's touched my heart and my soul. We are out of family court and just waiting on pre-approval from the US Embassy so that we can move forward into PGN (Guatemalan version of the Attorney General's Office) for approval. Then it's birth certificate, pink and then we travel. I'll blog more over the weekend :)


  1. I'm so glad you are enjoying the twins and I'm glad you yet another step closer to brining home Dylan.

  2. I hope you will be leaving on a jet plane very, very soon. :-)

  3. Come on pre-approval!!!

    Glad you are having fun with the twins. That's a great idea to put the kids in the car seat etc. We had some...ummm....trouble...with that when we brought Gabe home.

  4. Hi Julie! Thanks for your kind words on my blog . . . I love reading your entries :) Glad to hear that you are busy and having fun! If you don't mind telling me, could you let me know where you found the "I was worth the wait" stuff? I LOVE it :) Thanks!

  5. Sounds like the twins are a great warm up for what is to come for you and your husband. Yeah! I can completely understand loving your little boy that you haven't seen in person yet. Happy times....

  6. Hi Julie,

    I saw your posting on my blog - Waiting for Nina and came to see yours. Thanks for commenting. I like your blog. Very witting and personal. You are my first real (non-spam) comment. I wasn't sure if anyone was reading but it is fun and therapeutic to post. Something to do while waiting.
    Congrats on adopting Dylan. Sounds like you are a little ahead of us, so maybe soon he'll be home?
    The waiting is hard isn't it?
    I heard they hired some more people at the embassy for pre-approval too. Are you adopting with COTW?
    Good luck. I'll keep checking in on your blog and see how you are doing. And yes, feel free to add waiting for Nina to your links. Maybe I'll get some more real comments.
    Take care.

    Wishing you a speedy pre-approval! Hope the new people they hired at the embassy get crackin'!

  8. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Now when the heck can you bring your beautiful babe home with you? Hurry up already, bureaucrats!

  9. Come on Pre-Approval...with the new employees it should come faster. I am so glad you got updated pictures. Hugs...

  10. Glad you're having a good time with the twins during the wait.

    Hope you get your approval soon...
