Now we're just see her face.

Well. we're working our way up the wait-list of referrals---for those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about....we're soon to be matched with our sweet baby girl. 
How old will she be?  Somewhere between 0 and 30 months.  When will we see her?  At our first court-date, which has been typically around 6-8 weeks after referral.  When can we bring her home?  Usually about 2-3 weeks after the first court-date.  But one thing at a time.......we seem to be teetering right around #13 right now.  It's hard to tell (unless we ask, which I won't do just yet) because we don't have contact with many of the adopting families from our agency.  So from what we know we are at least 13th on the list at present time.  The way it works is this......say the next babe in line is girl- baby, age 9 months.  Well, if the next adopting parents are waiting for a boy-baby--18 months, they would be skipped over and the next in line would have a shot.  If the next person says they would like either gender 0-12 months, then chances are this could be their babe!  Depending on health status, etc.  So there you have it.  When you ask me one of these very common questions, I will refer you here! :0)  I do love the interest in our adoption.  Before, I felt like I was spreading the word.....but NOW everyone seems to know.  Pretty cool to be able to share such an amazing part of our lives with you all. 
I'm lov'n it. :0)

Just found your blog, loved reading about your adoption and your authenticity in the post below. Sometimes we Christians act like we have it so together, I'm afraid we intimidate and discourage those who know they don't. I'm a pastor's wife from CA, following your journey :)
