2 months waiting on Feb 10

Well, with the exciting 2nd birthday of our sweet son, I have forgotten to do what I intended to do which was to post each month we have been waiting. So, we have now waited 2 months. Our agency recently stated that the trend of wait times has now increased to 5-8 months until a referral so that really puts us waiting until the end of summer. So, as everyone continues to ask questions, there is nothing to share besides we have put 2 months behind us and look forward to likely 6 more! That's ok with us as we know God has His perfect plan with this. We will focus on getting our other two kids to sleep better at night in the meantime. Thanks for checking in!


  1. Thanks for the update! How comforting to know that God has the perfect plan!:)
