Well, let's see. The last post was almost 9 months ago?? I got away from blogging and considered just deleting it altogether since facebook seems like a sufficient way of keeping people updated with our lives. BUT we have officially been approved to pursue our second adoption, which means there will be many details to share that not everyone on facebook is going to care about.
So here's a quick update on the last 9 months:
Eli turned two last Valentine's day and is quickly approaching 3! Physically, he is doing great! He has completed his occupational therapy and is above average in height (so hard to believe the little guy that was waaaay below growth charts is now towering over his peers). He still receives speech therapy twice per month. His vocabulary is okay, but his articulation is low which may lead to him attending a developmental pre-school in the spring.
Matthew and I decided to become foster parents. We have been licensed for a couple weeks now, but have not had a placement yet. The only phone call we've gotten for a placement happened to be when we were out of town and unavailable :(
And, as previously stated, we decided to pursue our second adoption. We are requesting one or two children, 0-5 years old, either boy or girl from Ethiopia. And we said we would consider special needs. First order of business is filling out some paperwork and sending it to our agency with the first program fee. Then the paperchase begins!
Stay tuned for more details!
