Email Worth Cheering About
If you heard loud cheering coming from Texas this afternoon, it was us getting word from our adoption agency that we are officially on the waitlist to adopt a little girl from Ethiopia!
Six months worth of paperchase is over! Oh, happy day!
Praise God! It was all Him, remember my fingerprints weren't even classifiable.
We are requesting a girl age 0 to 30 months old. Babies under 12 months are in much higher demand, so we anticipate being matched with a toddler. The average wait time with our agency before being matched with a child over 12 months old is 5 months, then after the referral (or match) we'll have 2 to 5 months before we travel for our court date in Ethiopia and get to meet our child, then we'll travel back to Ethiopia again about 6 weeks after that to bring her home. So, we still have a good 10 months or so, give or take a few months, before we bring our new daughter home. But we are very excited and relieved to be through with all the paperwork, and on to the next phase!
