Our paperwork, that is. This is big news. It means we have "officially" begun "the wait".
So, what exactly are we waiting on?? We're waiting on a referral (adoption speak for being matched with a child). Currently, the wait time for a baby boy is 3-8 months. We're hoping we'll get to see his cute little face in closer to 3 months rather than 8! My sweet Nana says she's already got him pictured in her mind...we see him in every little African face we come across.
After so many paperwork delays it feels good to be "officially" waiting. Hopefully we'll feel the same way a few months from now.
Please remember to keep "baby Eli" in your prayers. We'll keep you posted on anything exciting that happens during "the wait".
