I'm surprised by the influx of comments - thanks everyone! Here's a picture of the little guy ... I think he's a good looking boy.

I'll provide updates as appropriate, but there won't be much news until we travel to Korea to pick him up. We will be quite busy with paper work and documentation over the next several weeks after which we will wait for the U.S. and Korean governments to do their thing. We expect to make our trip to Korea in February or March of 2010. It's going to be a long wait but we're excited about the certainty of the whole affair. Before our travels, we'll have a baby shower and nesting and possible home buying, etc. - all of the stuff that parents-to-be partake in, and all the stuff my wife is thrilled about finally being able to participate in. And, I'm really excited about participating too.

Thanks again for all the support - and for those still going through infertility struggles, remember that what you are reading and seeing here is the worst possible outcome you can have. We haven't gotten our child yet, but the pain and struggle of trying to conceive already feels like a distant memory. The moral is: It will be okay. In fact, it will be even better than that ... but good luck with your efforts none the less.

We are going to be parents.

Our referral for a 5 month old Korean baby boy came this week. With a stellar medical history and no indications of any reasons for concern, we have accepted and now embark on the stack of paperwork to legalize the matter.

Pictures to come - but we're looking at 3 - 4 months of processing time prior to making our trip to Korea to pick him up. I haven't seen my wife this happy since our first year of marriage. It is a good week, indeed.
