In The Waiting Room...

We are "in the waiting room"! We found out yesterday that we were officially put on a waiting list for our children as of December 21! This is a HUGE step in the process and we are so excited:).  Basically what this means is that our information is in the hands of the CWA Ethiopian staff and we are potential adoptive parents with a completed dossier. The original dossier should arrive there in the next few days and will be sent for translation so it's ready for court when we travel over to pick up the kids. There are probably a lot of people ahead of us who would have priority to children who become available, but we're trusting in God and His timing. CWA will not be releasing what number we are at on the list, as this can cause a lot of unnecessary anxiety. We were told that the wait for 2 young children is about 6-9 months, infant boys 4-5 months, and infant girls 9-12 months. I'm not sure if we'll get the referral for both of the kids at the same time or one at a time. We've been assigned a new CWA case worker who will walk us through the rest of our adoption journey and we're hoping to talk with him sometime before Christmas. Please continue to join us in praying for God's loving arms to surround our children this Christmas!
