Hello, everyone! (Ha…I know there are only a few of you reading. But thanks for checking on us!) I haven’t posted in a little while. Sorry about that. Things have been busy here – school/homework, church activities starting back up, visiting family, time with friends, etc. I also started working part time (about 12 hours a week) to save up for our next adoption payment. My job is really fun, but I miss my little ones a lot when I’m there. We did hear a mini-update from our agency that our wait may be a little shorter than previously anticipated. We had originally been given a 12-18 month wait before referral. (I cried to my steadfast husband that it felt just like Ethiopia, and he reminded me that 18 months and 5 years are really not that similar.) Then we edited our special needs request a bit, and they said probably closer to the 12 months. Just recently, our family coordinator said it’s probably looking like 6-12 months, and possibly even sooner! I’m trying to be cautiously optimistic. She also gave us some insight about which type of specific special need file she thinks we may receive. I don’t want to give details about that yet, but it feels like a step forward and lets me focus some of my research and prep a little bit.
Since I don’t really have anything too exciting to post, I thought I’d share a few great blog posts I’ve read lately. Check them out!
