UPDATE: We just got our travel date. One month from today I will be meeting my daughter for the very first time. FREAKING OUT>HAPPY>




For the four or five people reading this, here's the deal:

We have been approved for adoption. (We already have two biological kids but we wanted one more and figured this would be the best way to do that.) We have seen pictures of our little daughter, who is currently waiting for us in the care center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She is only four months old, and very tiny, but she already looks smart and cool and funny.

Needless to say, this will change our lives a whole lot. I plan to cut way down on anything that isn't parenting -- so long for unremunerated music writing, at least for a while -- so this might turn into a blog about her, or our adventures, or something. I'll post lots of pictures and all that, and probably write a lot about diapers and all that sappy stuff.

We could get the call really any time (could be today, but probably won't be), and then it's like "here's your travel date, get your tickets" and poof we're out of here. I will post that information when I get it. Because of laws, I can't put her pictures up here yet. But if you need one, email me and I'll hook you up.

Very circumspect
I must be these days until
the big announcement

Suffice it to say
(like anyone's reading this)
my life's gonna change*

*in a real good way
