one smart move

When we first got married, Greg and I would make stupid uneducated decisions. After one bad car purchase, we have learned our lesson! Flying to Florida this week and doing the interviews was definitely a smart move! We interviewed three different agencies. Liked them all, but loved two of them. When we left I thought I knew which one we would choose, but my mind changed when we got down there. I was so impressed and felt very comfortable with the agency in Tampa , that we have decided to use them to grow our family! Of course each agency has pros and cons. This agency advertises a longer wait. I thought that would really bother me, but after leaving the office I started to think of that wait in a positive way. Longer time to save the cash, time to take our trip to Europe (that he has been wanting to do for years), and time for me to finish the school year without being interrupted. However, we all know that things will happen when they are suppose to happen. So today I am filling out the application, writing the first of many checks, and deciding on who will do our homestudy! We are buckled up and ready for the ride!

On another note, I just want to tell Patti, Tom and Kayla, thank you again for letting us come and go! We love you guys and value your friendship more than you know. I really hope you are still in Tampa when we finally bring home our baby!

That's so fantastic that you feel confident with your agency! That is a HUGE decision, and I would agree that you made the right decision interviewing them in person. Congratulations on a job well done!! :)
