Today we got news that our dossier (aka enormous amount of paperwork) has been approved and we are officially on the waiting list. Paperwork phase over...waiting phase begins.
Although the numbers are a little arbitrary since people can be on multiple lists and it is not including people who were referred in June, here are our digits:
Baby Boy List #95
Baby Girl List #122
Sibling Group List #49
That's the good news!
The bad news is adoptions are moving slower and there is quite a bit of uncertainty in Ethiopia right now, so the wait time which was once 8 months, could be as high as 18 months (currently averaging about 12 months).
So we wait, and we pray.
Thanks for journeying with us!
