Officially Waiting!!!!

Today is the day that we start our waiting for a child referral! I was surprised to get an email from our caseworker today saying that our dossier looks perfect and we are now on the wait list. Yippee!! I was not expecting it this quickly but what a nice surprise :)

We are waiting for a referral of one girl up to 18 months old or two sisters, one of which is under 18 months and the other up to 4 years old. More than likely we will end up with a referral for one girl.

I know everybody is wondering how long will this take. Right now the average wait time for a referral is around 8 months, so we have a lot of waiting ahead of us. After the referral we will still need to wait to receive a court date and then wait to pass court, which may or may not happen on the first try. Any prayers for patience would be greatly appreciated!
