Fly Little Storkie bring that Baby to Mama


Many of you reading this may not know the process in which we here in Australia waiting to adopt here about when to ‘expect’ the call.

The CALL being when someone from DoCS (Department of Community Services) calls us to say that a referral package has arrived from China for us.They will then tell us that we have  a boy or a girl. How old they are, their weight, height etc.From when we get this call it will be between 1 and 3 days before we will get to see our Rogue Regent for the first time. But watch this space as I will be posting here.

Anyway DoCS is different from the American agencies in that they do not call to let us know that referrals are on the way. We only know that referrals are on the way when US families start posting to their blogs that their agencies have contacted them.

So…. guess what?

Some US families are already posting to their blogs to say they have been contacted and referrals are IN THE AIR as we speak.

So somewhere over the Pacific Ocean right now in a mailbag is an envelope, and in that envelope is the photo of a dream come true.

Our Rogue Regent is going to be home with us soon and I can hardly imagine how they are going to change our lives. All I know is that it will be for the better!

In celebration of the imminent arrival of the Rogue Regent, guess what I did?

Yep went shopping! Below is what I bought.
