4 Months and Two Weeks
That is how long we have been waiting for our referral.

I feel a little anxious today. Not sure why. I guess I am just REALLY READY for our referral (Ha, like every waiting family isn't).

I spend my nights looking for stories about Ethiopia. Reading blogs of others who have been and brought their beautiful children home. Dreaming about the day we will go to pick up our new children.

Until that time I will just sit and dream.

When we were put on the wait list our agency told us the wait for a referral would be between 6-10 months. I'm hoping our wait is at least half over. A girl can dream right?

In good news, it seems the judge who was on maternity leave is now back at work. This will give the country two judges again thus, hopefully, speeding up the process a little.

If you want to read a wonderful story about a family who stepped out in faith and made a difference for three great kids click here. You wont be sorry.
