I got my referral today!!!!


1-16-2009

I never thought this would happen so soon, and I am so glad I picked the agency I did. I just had a great feeling about them after doing my due diligence in research. Because they are so small, their wait list is also small... Yet they are above reproach and as ethical as I could find.

Anyway, as you all know, I cannot post any pictures of my referral, but suffice it to say, this child is gorgeous and shines through the picture page with a joyous personality. I feel extremely lucky and will continue to pray that those in charge of these things will make my court date before the rainy season. Now that I have a face to attach too, I really want to jump on that plane (and THAT, as you can see from my blog, is a BIG DEAL)

Yay! I'm still in shock :-)

PS The picture above is a stock photo, NOT my referral.

Andrea,
She is young but I'm not allowed to give ANY details.
I wishI could go pick her up right now, before she grows a dy older. But now I enter the well known "waitng" phase I've been reading so much about from other adoptive parenting blogs.
