Three Years Ago Today & Now

It was three years ago today that I mailed our application to C*H*I. I would never have imagined that we would still be waiting after 3 years. But these past few weeks have had lots of referral. Two weeks ago, wethere were 6 referrals, last week, there were 2 referrals given, and yesterday, there were 6 and today one referral. I figured , we were about #59 overall. I just heard back from my adoption worker and she has us at #55. Yesterdays'referrals for baby boys in our same age range went to families who were in the mid 20s. The families who were ahead of those families were requesting either girls or siblings. Not sure though how many people between 55 and the mid-20s are requesting boys in the same age range, though. I'm still guessing that our referral will come sometime this spring. Right now, families who received referrals for baby boys waited a little over 11 months.

Moving, Moving

This past week there was a downpour of referrals. 6 in all. 5 boys and 1 girl. We are now 66 on the list, I believe. There was also some courtdates that were given. Things finally seem to be moving again in the Ethiopia program.

I had to add the word verification to my comments, since I was getting spam in my comments. Just type the word and then you can post your comment. Hopefully this will help keep the spammers away.
