    Celebrity Adoptions

    Ironically, my brother told me about this as he was watching the Master's yesterday. It is so nice to hear about people talking about the joys of adoption and announcing it rather than keeping it a secret.

    Thanks for clarifying Melissa!

    The Adoption Tax Credit

    Thanks for all the great info. I am going to have to read through in depth. Per Melissa's post little confused if our first failed match would count as its own attempt, meaning two separate refunds since it was the same tax year and Colin's adoption won't be final until 2012. Guess I'll find out when we meet with accountant. Good thing I kept good records.

    The Adoption Tax Credit

    This is all great info! Best advice my accountant gave me was to keep receipts for everything and have it organized. Makes my head spin and glad we have a CPA. I never was a numbers gal.

    The Adoption Tax Credit

    I just called Abrazo on this today. It can be complicated and talking to tax advisor doesn't always clarify. There is a free online tutorial at adoptionlearningpartners.org helped give an overview. Good Luck! After we file I will post what I've learned.

    I have been off the forum for awhile and when I logged in this morning, I was so happy to read the joyous news. Patience and don't stop believing paid off. Prayers for the birth family and the new extended family! The happiness radiates in your faces in the picture.

    The forum is great for staying connected and meeting new friends. Had a great visit with Dyna. It was such a pleasure meeting you. Congrats! Love hearing happy stories. Baby boys are absolutely amazing. Best of luck to you and your new son.
  11. Yeah!!!! So excited for you. I haven't been online much, but heard the great news.

  12. Hey guys! As a AP with a preemie just wanted to tell you to hang in there. There can be some really tough days and some really great days. Put your faith in each other and whom ever your Higher Power is. I never thought that we would make it through, but when I see Norah running around now it makes me believe in miracles. Let me know if you need anything! Good Luck! Erin

    Thank you for all the prayers, well wishes and congratulations. Just when you don't understand what's in store and you figure you'll just take time to see what God has planned... he speaks to you. Mike and I are so excited and will be forever grateful to his birth parents for giving us this perfect gift. Colin Paul was born 9-10-11, one day before my birthday and we received the call about a baby boy born and waiting to meet his parents from Elizabeth on 9-23, one day after Mike's birthday. All our birthday wishes came true! Colin is still in the NICU, but continues to get stronger each day. I ask for continued prayers for all of us as our family will be separated for a few weeks when Mike returns home to work and I will stay with him as he continues to improve. We've been each others support system and I know it will be hard on both of us not being together. Mike is having a hard time leaving, but has to go back and plans to return 10-21 (our anniversary) to visit Colin and by then hopefully he will be much stronger and closer to being able to leave the hospital. If anyone is in the San Antonio area and would like to meet, private msg. me

  15. Hey there!! Thinking of you this week!
