A bunch of families have either just returned, are there now, or are about to travel to the C*ngo.  My inquisitive self couldn't help but ask where I am in the line and here's the response I got:

  "Yes Kristen you should be 2 or 3 for a referral. Hopefully it will be very soon."

Holy Guacamole!!!!  It seems like I've waited and waited and waited and waited and now it's as if ALL engines are go!!!


  1. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kristen...you were just number eight weren't you? Did you skip from eight to 3 or 2???? Sooooo excited for you. I wish I could babysit Simon when you leave. :) Woooohooooo!!!!!!!!!

    1. MER!!!!! I know, right??!! I couldn't believe it when she told me that! Just about 2 weeks ago I was number 8! They are opening a new orphanage for the babies, so there will be more room to accept children- I know a few families just got referrals! I'm SURE Simon would way rather be with you than his boarding place...!!

  2. We were so excited when we find out we were number 3!! Just found out yesterday. 5 days ao we were #6!! Feels like we are getting somewhere!

  3. Oh my goodness!!!! So exciting!

  4. wow great. I am very happy for you. Your kids are coming!

  5. Oh that is so exciting!!!!!!!!!!!! Praying for the process to go quickly.

  6. Oh my goodness....wow!!!!!!!!
