We interrupt our regularily scheduled programming to bring you this announcement.....

We have decided to make a change in our adoption plans.

We have decided to adopt from Taiwan. We are overjoyed with this decision as our wait should be much less and we will be able to adopt a child with the same heritage as Katie, which is one of our priorities. The program that we are going with should bring us a referral very quickly (probably in the next 2-3 months) and then the wait begins while the adoption is approved by the Courts in Taiwan. That can take between 4-8 months. We hope that by the end of this year that Katie will have a baby sister. Woweeeeee!

We will keep you posted....
