"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

-Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

Today was the first day...

.. of our journey! Today we sent in our application to our chosen agency. It was pretty overwhelming to send that envelope off, knowing we were REALLY doing it. I'm hopeful to think that in 18 months we could be home with our baby girl. 18mos.... seems like such a long time, but with the boys and all thier activities, and a few big events coming up this next year, I hope the time flies by!

Now if we can just keep our sanity through the paper chase!
