Since I get asked almost daily (well every day I make it out further than the mailbox, that is) what the latest is with our adoption, I thought all sixteen of you who read PajamaMama would like another Adoption Update post. Am I right? 'Course, I'm right...so here goes...
Well, we’re still waiting for our referral.
(Again, Referral= moment in which your adoption agency calls and says, “Are you ready to meet your child?” and you continue to hold your breath for the rest of the day as you wait for the email containing pictures, histories and medical reports on your real live boy or girl). After that wait, you... wait some more. This time for a court date when a judge determines this child is in fact yours. Then, another antsy wait while you get everything ready for a trip of a lifetime and another member of the family.
We've been on the official waiting families list for 3 months now, which means that we should be half way to The Phone Call. (For some free-time-filler, search for 'adoption referral phone calls' on youtube...and I dare you not to cry)
And, you are now up to date. We are about half way to the half way mark. Pretty exciting, I know. Maybe next week I'll fill you in on what I've been doing while waiting....maybe.
