Still gonna wait...

Most of you know that I am online with many a yahoo adoption group. They are a great group of families that know all too well what international adoption is all about. There's one family that is on the same time line that Jon and I are on. They got onto the waiting list just weeks after we did. They are actually living in Taiwan. So they have asked Cathwel(our orphanage) about their status and were told to expect another 4-5 month wait. Cool beans. I can wait another 4 or 5 months. I know that it's only 1-2 months less then what we were expecting. But this info came from the horses mouth, so to speak. And that's 1-2 months less. I can live with that. So here's to being hopeful.

And on another note...Jon and I have finally deposited the last of the adoption money into a secret, don't know the account #, have limited access to bank account. Now we can breath a little easier and can spend some money on much needed improvements to our home. The tile guy is coming in two weeks!!! YAY!! Now I know we'll have to redo ALL our documents, but that money should be easier to come by then the huge amount we had to save for the actual adoption...now if we just had a crib?

Every day is a pleasant step closer!

I'm actually starting to think my suspected 7-8 more months isn't so bad and that it seems just around the corner. That, or I've just gone buck nutty.

Any way about it, we're closing in slowly but surely.

I truly hope so!

Funny how a few months can seem like a bargain when it comes to waiting!?!?

Closer and closer everyday!

Keep smilin!

4 or 5 months isnt so long. I am happy you have some 'insight' into the wait time now. So my prediction of father's day referral is looking to be 'spot on'. Whoohoo, I win the lottery! Get all you want done on the house done now. It sure gets harder once there are little feet running around. But oh what a blessing those little feet will be when they get here. Keeping my fingers crossed for a June (or before) referral!
