We have our I171H!!

And it only took 1 month to get it. I was totally surprised to get it int he mail today! I wasn't expecting it at all. One step closer to the girls! Now we just have to wait along with the other families for referrals, which could take up to 9 months or so. We will see what happens over the next few months. Stay tuned.

Our documents are in Ethiopia

Our documents made it to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Friday the 20th. Now they will be translated and we are on the waiting list for our babies. Hope it doesn't drag on forever like China did. I am getting more excited as each day passes. One step closer to bringing them home. At least we have other things to keep my mind occupied like my little man Levi, he keeps us on our toes most days. I had forgotten how much it took to keep up with a toddler in the house, and his leg is in a cast!! Wait and see what it will be like when he gets his prosthetic foot. I will never be able to sit down again.

And we're off!!!!

Or should I say our Dossier is off to Ethiopia!!!!! I just got the e-mail today. We are officially waiting for our referral for our girls. I can't tell you how excited we are to be on this journey again. At this time the wait for a healthy infany girl with our agency is about 6 to 9 months. Let's hope it's closer to 6! After that we wait for our court date (agency rep. goes for us)and then if we pass we travel about 2 months after. We are hoping to bring the little ones home early next year. I will probably be going by myself or taking one of the older kids with me.

Very exciting times in the Maxwell house. Stay tuned for more news as we get further into the wait.
