Waiting...It's What We Do


So let's see. We waited to get our letter approved. We waited to get the homestudy done. We waited to be approved by our agency. We waited to match, and then waited for Sabrina to be born. When that didn't work, we again waited for her to be born. (I almost said "to be born again"...over my dead body!) Now she's here, and to celebrate, we're--waiting to go home! ICPC is keeping us here in California. Our agency said the Arizona ICPC office got our paperwork today. All they need to do is review it and give a verbal OK to the agency, and we're out of here! How long will that take? A day I hope, but I have faith, and I bet they can drag this out for another week right? In the meantime, look at the above picture...I love that outfit!

Sabrina looks positively adorable in that outfit!

Oh and glad to hear that you guys are staying at the Residence Inn.

Marriott is a really good company when it comes to LGBT civil rights issues. They got a 100% score from HRC and they always rank high on the DiversityInc.com annual survey of companies.

When my husband and I travel, we always stay at a Marriott property. Especially Residence Inn. We especially love the free breakfast buffet! They usually put out a really nice spread! Not just bagels and cereal, like some other places that shall not be named in this comment!

Well, hang in there you guys and we hope that all three of you make it back to Arizona safe and sound!
