100 lb. Club - I did it!
07-29-2003, 09:55 AM
Well, the pressure is off! I was 191 at the doctor's today. The adoption agency gave us 5 pounds grace, so I was within the limit!
I actually weighed LESS at the doc's than I did 10 minutes earlier at my home. When does that happen? That HAS to be a God thing!
Thanks for your support. I'm still onto my ultimate goal - 145-150.
I'll let you guys know right away when we get our referral - after that it will be 2-3 months of legal stuff before we can go to Korea and get him. So, we expect to have him home by Halloween!

That is the best news I have heard in a long time :) How exciting!!!!! It must feel so good, and knowing you'll be parents in the next couple of months must be thrilling!!!! You have worked so hard...and I checked out your website. Now this may sound so silly, but I could not find it on the website....why did the adoption agency give you a goal weight? It sounds like it was more than a personal goal. Sorry to sound clueless..but I just could not figure it out!!! COngrats to you and hubby
