Lilypie Waiting to Adopt tickers

Official First Post

Finally, I have gotten around to setting up this site! I didn't want to set it up too soon. I didn't know when I'd have anything interesting to post. I also didn't want to wait until the last minute. If a miracle happens and the stars align... and we get our referral sooner than expected... things will be too crazy! At least... I'll have someplace to babble on while D is sleeping.

Just to get you up to date - My husband D and I are adopting our first baby (or two) from Vietnam. We are officially on the waiting list. Our agency expects our wait to be 12 - 18 months. That is not written in stone by any means. It could be a little quicker... and unfortunately it could be longer. We are praying for the quicker ; ) If you are not familiar with the Ins&Outs of International Adoption you may be confused. Basically, we are waiting in line behind a bunch of other families. As they are matched with their children we move up on the list. It's a lot like pulling a ticket at the store and waiting for your turn. You are constantly watching everyone else... to see who's next. Our agency is supposed to have referrals in mid August. I'm so excited for the famlies. I hope they will travel soon to bring home their little ones.

We got some good adoption news last week. Our coordinator sent me an email saying that our Dossier has been submitted to the IAD (international adoption department of Vietnam). That is wonderful news even though it will be sitting with stacks and stacks of other families Dossiers... getting dusty ... waiting for our referral to come. Maybe my Dossier is rubbing folders with yours... or not.

It's time for bed... Best Wishes, A

Yay! Glad you started blogging--our dossier was submitted on 6/20, should be interesting to see how long it takes to be approved.
