It is official! Our dossier is done, reviewed, approved and we are OFFICIALLY on the waiting list for our little sweetie! Yikes! This is both exciting and terrifying all at the same time. You see, we had initially thought it would take longer and we would have a longer wait, but it is now looking like things have moved quite quickly and we may have our baby much sooner than we were thinking. We have not specified gender so we are on a list for either one and there are not a tremendous number of people ahead of us. Like I said, exciting and terrifying. We were thinking we would be traveling to Ethiopia in the Spring but it may be as soon as early winter. But we know God's timing is perfect and so we will keep looking to Him in everything. It was a year ago this week that God stirred my heart into a frenzy about adopting, that my husband said no thanks, and now, we are a few months away from meeting our newest family member! Feel free to join me in saying---

It doesn't seem like that long ago that we were new on the wait list. That was one of the most exciting days of my life!! At that time you had to wait for your FDL to come before AGCI would put you on the list.....we waited and waited and waited and made phone calls and waited and it finally came!!!!!! I was crying when I called AGCI to tell them!!!
I am excited all over again!!! What a special time.
