OMG...... We received our referral!!!

We received the file of an almost 2 month old baby girl this afternoon. Of course we accepted and are just so in shock and in love with her already. She is tiny weighing about 7.7 lbs, but oh so beautiful!!!! I can't believe it. I keep looking at her referral photo and paperwork and thinking to myself is this really happening? Is this our daughter? This has been such a good week for us. First with Levi doing so well with his new foot and so close to getting it, to getting our baby girl's referral. We couldn't be happier. I think we are going to name her Mylie Jaide Desta Maxwell, we may not use Jaide though. Desta is her Ethiopian name and means Happy or Joy. Just beautiful.

Please pray for a speedy court date so that we may bring our beautiful daughter home.

Month 2 in the wait for the girls

Well today is the 2 month mark in our wait for our girls. If nothing has changed in wait times we are looking at possibly getting our referral in about 4 to 7 months. Of course we hope it's closer to the 4 months than the 7 months. I was told that no-one with this agency has waited longer than 8 months so far, I hope that is still the case. And then court is another case altogether, the more I read the posts from other waiting families, the more scared I get that is where the longest wait will be. There have been families waiting 16 plus months since referral of thier children, and that is really scary to me. I was hoping to bring them home a few months before having to go back to work when Jerry gets back from overseas. Sooner or later I will have to for financial reasons. Lets hope the next few months go by as quickly as these last 2 have.
