We are officially on the waitlist!!! Our dossier is flying to Washington, D.C. today and then it will be on its way to Ethiopa (or E-see-oh-pee-a as our 2-year-old likes to say).

The average wait for a referral right now is 4-6 months for a child over 13 months (we are requesting a child of either gender between the ages of 0-18 months, or siblings between the ages of 0-5 years). So, hopefully sometime early this fall we will get to see a picture of our child(ren).

We are so excited to have gotten past the paperwork stage, but I must admit I am not looking forward to the wait. Over the next few days I will definitely be working on a list of projects to keep my mind occupied.

Quote of the Day: After texting my dad a picture of our e-mail that said "waitlist," he called me and said, "The picture was kind of fuzzy, was that your ultrasound photo?"

Yes it was, Dad, yes it was!

I heart our postman!

Because he just delivered our I-171H USCIS approval!

Oddly this feels very similar to the day I found out I was pregnant with Lilli.

Looks like my Monday will be filled with government offices for authentications, an afternoon with my scanner, and hopefully a trip to Fed-Ex before they close!

Woohoo! Waitlist here we come!
