Slow on the Blog, but not on the progress

So I know I've been behind on updates, but it's tough to find time to blog when you're checking email and voice mail every hour!
Will's 2nd DNA test was done on March 5 to confirm he's the same baby we fell in love with last June. On the 13th we got the email that he IS the same baby, not that we had any doubts. It's pretty clear in his monthly photos that he's the same boy. But it's another USCIS requirement to protect everyone involved.
Now we're waiting on the US Embassy to issue our "pink slip" which will have the date and time to appear at the Embassy in Guatemala City to apply for his immigrant visa. Basically, it's our notice to come and pick him up!
So please don't call us, we'll call you. Every time the phone rings we think it's them...
(Just kidding! We love your calls!)

Will is a WATKINS!

Got the new birth certificate on February 13, 2008. Will is officially a Watkins although his birth certificate lists his first and middle names as Luis Felipe. We will change his name to William Luis when we readopt him in Tennessee after he gets home.

Now we're just waiting for the DNA test and the passport. After the US Embassy gets the DNA they will email us to come and pick him up!
