17 Months DTE

Wow - 4 months since I've blogged!  Thanks to all of you sweet friends who have commented, emailed, left FB messages and wondered where I was - yes, I am happy to report that I am still alive!!  :)  I've come to find out that blogging is one of those things where if you take a break from it, it's really really hard to get back into the habit.  But now is as good a time as any - so here's the update!


It has now been 17 months since our paperwork was sent to Ethiopia.  If you happen to be keeping track, that's one month longer than our original time-frame.  Currently the wait time stands at around 26-30 months, but we heard this week that basically for each month we wait, the wait time increases about a half a month.

Infant Boy (0-18mo) = 40
Young (under 4 yr) siblings = 24
Siblings with older child =6
Toddler Boy (19-47) mo = 15
So there's our adoption update....here's some other things that have happened in the last 4 months...hopefully at some point each of these will have their own post :)  .....

*J turned 7 years old!!
*thanks to my in-laws, the whole extended family was able to go to DisneyWorld for a week!!
*C is taking a gymnastics class once a week and having so much fun
*J is playing baseball again this spring
*we hosted a Japanese exchange student in March
*we went through the process of updating all our adoption paperwork, home study, fingerprints, medicals, etc 
*I'm still having lots of fun with my Thirty-One business!  I promoted to Senior Consultant and it has truly been a blessing in our lives - most of our adoption fundraising happens through 31 now!  I have a team of 9 lovely ladies and I'm hoping to promote again soon!!

Is there anybody still out there?  I'd love to hear your updates too!!

Angie,

So glad you posted! I am also very happy that all is well; I was getting concerned. Hope you post again soon.

I'm glad to see that you're back to blogging as well! You're quite right: blogging is one pastime that is so very easy to lose track of in the maelstrom of everyday life.

I can't believe that J is 7 already! Time is just moving too quickly these days...
