I've been getting this question a lot lately...

"So, how is the adoption coming?  Where are you guys at?"

I am so sorry for the lack up updates on the adoption.

We've been working on adoption stuff nearly every day for the past couple of months.
Getting things filled out, requested, copied, notarized, mailed.
The people at Fed Ex and I have gotten to be pretty good friends.

We are officially Gladney approved!
I just received an email from our agency letting us know that they are sending us our approval packet and certificate.
We are still waiting on our CIS approval letter, which is the LAST document we need to have a completed dossier.

Please pray that we get that in a timely manner.  We have had major issues with immigration here in Orlando.  They have relocated their offices and now have another new person in that position.  We are praying that our paperwork doesn't get pushed aside while the mess that was left behind gets cleaned up.

That's where we are.
That's what we've been doing.
We are so excited!


  1. Good Luck! I pray that you have peace through this stressful process...Thanks for the update!

  2. Good luck! I know it doesn't seem this way when you're in the midst of it, but it seems like it has gone fairly quickly.

    But another question: Are they giving you any estimations on how long it is taking to get referrals once your dossier is complete?

  3. superchikk - the email i received this past week from gladney said the average is now 4-6 months

  4. Wow. When our friends adopted from Ethiopia this past year, I don't think the wait was anywhere near that long. I think it was 3 months tops. How things change!

    But that will give you lots of time to prepare for the little one!

  5. Just want you to know we are still sooooo excited!!! Praying for you and all the details. We love you!!! Jen
