Good news for us today. We moved up 2 more spots today. That puts us at #12 on the overall list , therefore, this post is dedicated to the 2nd best QB in the history of the Dallas Cowboys, #12, Roger Staubach (hence the picture). The agency actually handed out 3 referrals but only 2 of the families had been waiting longer than us. The 3rd referral was that of a sibling group ages 3 and 5. Who would have guessed when we started this journey a couple of years ago that we would still be waiting? Last May, when we made the decision to officially leave the Vietnam program and persue an Ethiopian adoption, the wait time was estimated at 6-10 months. Well, we eclipsed that mark last month and now it is estimated at the 1 year mark. Oh well, what's a few more months when you've been waiting over 7 years already?
Before she left CHI, our case worker, Toni, suggested that Staci & I take a vacation this year. Well, we kind of took that suggestion and ran with it. Last week we bit the bullet and booked a trip to Cancun with some good friends of ours, Steve & Wendy Preston! We will be going the last week of August which will be when we hit the 12 month waiting mark. Who knows, maybe we'll get the good news while in Cancun! How awesome would that be?!?!
A big CONGRATS to those lucky families today and all those families who waited for the ban to be lifted!--Kris
Update: I am a complete moron! Once again I've miscalculated our number. Must be those complex equations like 15-2=x. We are actually number 13 on the list but I'm still dedicating this post to Roger Staubach because, well......he's Roger Staubach!
