Busy and Productive Times

Well, it's been a busy couple of months. We have become involved with an additional adoption agency, Open Heart Adoptions through Children's Service Society of Utah. We understand that the ratio of birth parents to couples waiting to adopt is better there, and we have some friends in our Families Supporting Adoption group who have successfully found their children through this agency. While we have experienced several challenges along the adoption road, we felt a renewed sense of entusiasm as we began working with CSS in addition to LDSFS.

On another note, Mike has not written much at all over the last several months because he has been working on his dissertation. All the work has finally borne fruit! Mike defended his dissertation before his committee yesterday, and you can now say you personally know a(nother) Doctor of Philosophy (want fries with that?). In other good news, Mike received his official hire letter from Wayne State, so we have a destination to go to in the fall. Things seem to be coming together just in time for another set of adventures!
