So, it's been 10 months today since we went on the waitlist the first time. But the exciting news this month is that we are officially back on the waitlist. And with our adjusted waitlist date we have been "officially" waiting 5 months.

I am so relieved to finally be official again. I am really praying that the delay will be resolved soon and that referrals will start coming quickly. Praying for all those families at the top of the list, and those who have been in limbo with court.

It's Time to Celebrate!

We are back on the waitlist!!! Woohoo!!!

So for a few details:

We have an adjusted waitlist date of 9/17/10. The average for referrals is 10 months. That puts us at getting a referral in July-ish. (*Just to be clear, this is based on current averages, due to some extenuating circumstances, we expect the averages to go up for a little while. But then I am really hopeful they will level back out around 10 months. Either way God is in control!)

A court date and travel will most likely not happen until after the rainy season and courts reopen.

We have slightly changed our preference. We are now anticipating a referral for 1 or 2 children of either gender between the age of 0 to 18 months (including twins).

Thank you so much for your support over the last 5 months (Wow! I really can't believe it's been that long!). Please continue to keep us in your prayers. We would love to have our child(ren) home by the end of the year.

Love you guys!
