It's a really long wait and is getting longer

Well, what can I say .... I am feeling very discouraged about the adoption. I found out last week that there were 4,000 dossiers to China last April. Right now the CCAA just finished matching Nov. 2005 which had 2,000. It literally took them 6 months to do this. We are already looking at 22-24 months currently. Now with 4,000 DTC's we could be looking at 3-5 years before we will receive a referral. YIKES!! Everyone is predicting that the wait time is just going to increase. We can't wait that long. Gabby would be 11-13 years old. We would be 52-55 years old ourselves. Yes, we want a child but we can't wait that long.

Looking in to the WC and SN program through our agency. It is hard to weight everything out. We might look into Foster Adopt or another country if possible.

Keep us in your prayers .


Got a package today from our Secret Pal. She sent an adorable Hot Pink long sleeve TShirt that said "Lock Up Your Sons" and 3 cute Disney Fairies books. I loved the handmade ladybug card. She's must be crafty!

Does life ever slow down?

Wow where did the month of September go? It's already the second week of October. I can't believe it. I have joined 2 bible studies in the last week and a financial planning group. My schedule is getting to be very full. I have to remember to enjoy this season as fall is such a beautiful time of year. It has been cold and rainy for the last week and half. We occasionally see a break with the sun drifting by.

Where are you precious daughter? Have you been a thought yet, or in your birth mommy's tummy , or are you in an orphanage some where waiting for your forever family? I pray that you are safe, warm and being loved. We are coming for you as soon as we can. We can't wait to hold you forever.

Happy Birthday Mother

Happy Birthday dear Mother! We love you and hope you are having a wonderful birthday in Solvange with friends.
