Adoption Update

Well, our agency finally followed up after that email I got a few weeks ago titled "Referral Packets". This time we got the regular Ethiopia Update newsletter saying that if we haven't heard from them, then we are not getting a referral at this time and that we have moved up on the list. Of course, this makes me wonder where exactly we are on the list, but we've been told not to ask. So, to sum it all up: we have no news! New referrals should come in a few weeks to a month, so maybe we'll get our referral then, or maybe we'll just move up on the list again. I'll let you know when it happens!

The newsletter also made it very clear that all of us in the Ethiopia program are not allowed to share any identifying information about a child we get as a referral. This means once we get matched with a baby we can't share photos or her given name or any identifying information at all until we have a successful court date and she legally becomes ours. I still plan to share our process. After all these months of blogging about nothing, it will be nice to have some real news, don't you think?!
