Dear No One,

It has been way too long since I wrote! We have been busy, busy this summer. Thought I’d update you on a few things though.

  1. Our home study got approved! This was the last step we needed to complete before we go active. We are still going to wait until after our vacation in August to go active, but we are 4 weeks away now. August 22 will be here before we know it! After that, the real wait begins!
  2. WE ARE MOVING!! Well not for a year, but Marcus got a job after residency. We will be moving to…Ankeny, Iowa! We are so excited. We could not have picked a better job for Marcus or area to raise our family. We will hopefully be moving back as a family of three instead of two. Fingers crossed.

Marcus signing his contract:


3. We have been blown away by the support for our puzzle fundraiser. Here’s what it looks like today:


Our plan now? Finish up a few things that we can plan for, keep reading and learning about adoption, and try to relax and keep our minds busy.

All my love,
