So. We have come to the wait, where we know nothing and can do
nothing (except pray!). It's been two days and I am already going insane
haha. So here's what I have been doing to keep my mind off everything
and to prepare as much as possible.
#1. Lyndsay and I have been working on our Movie Fundraiser Night. There
will be Facebook announcements, invites, emails, etc. I actually just
finished writing in all the details on all 100 card invitations that
Lyndsay was so awesome as to provide. :)
#2. Stalking Craigslist furniture. So far, we've bought two beds; both
metal red frames; one a twin and one a bunk bed. Both were cheap and in
great condition. Now on the look out for dressers/bureaus.
#3. Figuring out a rough daily schedule (yes, I am going way out here,
since I know nothing about them and they may not be home for nine more
months or so haha!) and a meal plan of sorts, as well as planning
#4. I just ordered $77 worth of books on adoption and raising adopted children from Amazon....
#5. Starting a baby shower wish list, although that's on hold until we
get a referral, because I have no idea what to ask for....
#6. Thinking about and reading up on bonding/attachment plans. Again,
waiting to find out how old they are so I can think about that more in
depth, but I am starting a binder with tips and ideas.
#7. Compiling my own packing list for ET from many lists provided by
other adoptive families. There's so much to think about and to figure
out for bringing over care packages and donations, etc.
Now that I am exhausted from thinking about all this, I am going back to watching a movie. Day #2 of vacation from job #1 ;)
