We had high hopes of getting our referral by the end of the year. After talking with Holt this afternoon, I don't think that will happen. We are about 4th on the list waiting with Holt for a healthy infant girl from Ethiopia. There are maybe only one or two infant girls they have at the crisis center that are close to begin paper ready for adoption. I'm thinking more like February time frame just for the referral.
It was disappointing to hear that news today, but it is nice to hear they are moving forward and have a system that is forming. With Christmas nearly here, and a certain someone's birthday around the corner, we have plenty to keep us busy.
Many thanks to all of you good friends who have been checking on us lately. James is doing well with his arm. Using it normal if you can believe that. People must think we're lying when they see the sling (or "slinky" as he calls it). We're getting the car situation fixed soon and plan on holding out to purchase another car for now. Too much on our plate!
