It's always fun when I click on over to a 'decor' blog and get to read a tidbit or two about the person's real life, so I thought I'd share a bit of good news from ours.
I mentioned before that my hubs and I decided to start our family through adoption a very long 2 years and 10 months ago. We had a rocky start considering that 10 days after we submitted our completed file and adoption fees, our local adoption agency declared bankruptcy. It was a horrible experience and one that made our adoption wait so much longer.
After the bankruptcy, our file was given an estimated number on the wait list. Since we were one of the last families to sign on with the agency before it went under, our number was waaaaaaaay down at the bottom of the list: #222.
Our small, but exciting news is that our wait list number is finally in the double digits. The last referral put us at.....................
Wooooohoooooooooooooo! And since some families ahead of us have different age and gender requests, that number could technically be a bit less. I'm starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel!!!!
Our other good news is that as soon as our documents are updated (they all expire after two years), our file will finally be sent over to Ethiopia. Since we were so far down on the list, it's been sitting in a filing cabinet in Ontario this whole time. Once I get the confirmation that our file has been sent overseas you can bet I'll be doing my own awkward version of the Carlton dance. :)
Let's hope our next update will be soon!
