Introducing . . .

Max Gerald Rup.

We are creating this blog to keep folks informed of what is going on in our adoption. This will eliminate the need for individual emails. There is also a way for folks to post comments to our entries, which we would really love.

We have just accepted our referral. His Indian name is Rup, but we will be calling him Max. He is 4.5 months old, and just adorable. Now begins the hard part, waiting to get him home. This usually takes between 4 and 7 months.

We will add news here as we get it, and perhaps paint a bit of a picture of our family as a whole. We would love to hear feedback and suggestions from other families going through this process, since we do not live in the area our agency is located in.

Wish us luck on our journey.

Disregard the pink, he really is a boy :)

Wow! What a beautiful baby boy! Congratulations! Max is a great name, and it looks like it will suit him just fine. What a sweet, sweet referral picture. I'm sure you just can't wait to see more!

Glad we're in this adventure together...maybe we'll even travel at the same time.
