We Are NEXT In Line!

Well...another Friday in Moscow as come and gone without "the call" from our agency (Friday is typically the day when the Ministry of Education issues travel dates to waiting parents); however we did find out today that we are NEXT in line with our adoption agency to get these travel dates assigned from the MOE.

This great news will certainly add to our motivation to get a few certain things done around the house this weekend that we have been putting off (i.e. painting, hanging pictures, sorting through Ashton's old baby clothes and toys...).

Keep your fingers crossed for next Friday!

So now the official wait begins...

Welcome to the first official post of our new Wyllie Adoption Blog. We spoke to our social worker yesterday from Catholic Social Services of North Carolina and confirmed that as of last Monday (5/25/09) we are now FINALLY officially registered with the Ministry of Education (MOE) in Moscow. The MOE is the government agency in Russia that places available orphan children to waiting families.

We can now expect a phone call at any time for an "invitation to travel" to meet our new son for the first time! Stay tuned...
