Approved!

We received an e-mail from Gladney today stating that we are fully approved to adopt through Gladney!  Here's a little snippet of the e-mail, which I'm just cutting and pasting here for posterity:

Brian and Tracy,

Congratulations, you are now Gladney approved and ready to begin the dossier and ultimately the referral phase of your adoption process. I am mailing you both an approval packet with your approval certificate and quarterly training information for your “approved and waiting” period.

It sure feels good to know the wheels are in motion!  Praise the Lord!

Awesome! That's a big step. Hey, are they having you do Hague training? I've heard of some agencies requiring it for Ethiopia, but Ethiopia's not a Hague country. Just curious. We are loving our time with our little one. Addis was wonderful, overwhelming and heart-breaking. Can't wait to hear about your next step.
