5 months waiting update...

Newest adoption news as of today's e-mail from CHSFS...

Well, not really anything to tell but lots of people have been asking so thought I would tell you all where we are in regards to baby E.

Families most recently matched with a child under 12 months of age with few known health concerns began their wait in June 2008. We began our wait in June 5, 2009. Although it appears to be only one more year for our turn, it is impossible to know how many families turned in their dossiers during that time. So, we could be waiting one year for a referral or even 2 years. We just don't know. Our agency does not give those numbers out because they believe it is difficult to tell you where you are since everyone's situation in different. Some people might be open to some things that people that are logged in before them aren't, giving them the referral before the person with the earlier log in date.

So while we wait, we are trying to stay busy and we hope to be putting our house on the market within the next few months. We are hoping and praying that everything falls into place in the near future and we move to the Walnut Grove/Tracy area. We've wanted to live closer to where I work and where Allie (and baby E) will go to school for a while now. We are planning on possibly renting a farm site until the house that's just right for us falls into our laps.

That's all I know about baby E for now, hopefully everyone is having a great beginning to the week and have a happy Halloween!!!
