sorry 'bout the crickets

I know it's been crickets over here, but I just haven't had anything new to report. We're kind of in holding pattern. Primarily because we're waiting to hear back from the Abba Fund to know if we'll be offered any grants or assistance with funding -- adoption is not only for those with fat bank accounts! :) I sent the application in a couple of weeks ago and was told it would take 4-6 weeks, so we should hear something very soon. Once we get over this hurdle, we can be passed on to the 'Ethiopia Team' at Wide Horizons and begin our dossier. We're very excited to start the next phase.

Assuming we have no major hang ups, the timeline will probably be something like:

1. Complete dossier in 2-3 months.

2. This spring (maybe May?), send dossier off to Ethiopia.

3. This summer, we should get to 'meet' our children (!) by receiving a referral.

4. God willing, we'll travel to Ethiopia in the fall! Whoo-hoo!

Just plotting that out makes me so excited! I know for most of us the summers go by so very quickly so maybe just maybe before we know it we'll be heading off to fetch our 'two little ones out there somewhere.'

  1. WOW! Can you believe you've actually got this down to a set # of steps and something that looks like a timeline?!?! Exciting stuff!
