Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,...

I went to the doctor today for my adoption physical.
Apparently, you must be free of all communicable diseases before you can bring home a baby.

They drew blood draw and asked a million questions. But my favorite was when the nurse circled the place for my TB test in black sharpie marker. I wonder how long that mark is going to hang around.
While waiting for the doctor, I was informed by a poster on the wall that going to the bathroom more than 8 times per day might indicate a problem. Good to know.

I'm excited for you about the adoption! How did you guys pick Ethiopia? We've thought about adopting in the future so I'm trying to learn about others' journeys :0)
