And The Countdown For Pink Begins.......



We found out today that Gabriel had his 2nd DNA test done on Tuesday, the 14th. From that point on we begin the two week countdown to PINK! So most likely we will receive pink the final week in November! Pink, for those that don't recall, is the US Embassy's notice to adoptive parents of their Embassy appointment to finalize the adoption paperwork and get the baby's passport and visa to travel home!

This 2nd DNA test began recently in August to aid in eliminating any issues with regards to switching babies. Our agency is incredibly reputable so we never feared that problem, but every baby adopted from Guatemala now has to have this test done. This is a good procedure to have in place - to be able to compare the baby's 1st DNA test with his 2nd DNA test.

Can we say we are the LEAST bit EXCITED?????????
