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!!
