Is the end in sight?

On Thursday I emailed our contact person at CHSFS and asked her if it was a possibility that we would get a referral in April. To my surprise, she said that an April referral IS possible, although, it would be the end of April at the earliest. Her answer surprised me because I fully expected her to say "I just don't know!" Right now the people at the top of 'the list' submitted a dossier in mid July (reminder, we are August 8).

So far nobody to my knowledge has had to wait a full 9 months for a referral...but...who knows, maybe we'll be the first! And just to warn anyone out there, please don't say "Oh! It's just like a pregnancy! 9 months!" because it isn't AT ALL like a pregnancy. We started this process over a year ago, and when we get our referral we still have a few more months of waiting.

In summary, I think we can realistically say we can count down in weeks rather than months! Stay tuned!

I can't even imagine what it's like to be going through this whole process. And I agree with you...this is NOTHING like a pregnancy. Just because the timing might closely resemble that of a pregnancy doesn't mean the two can be compared. But rest assured that God is preparing your precious little one just as he is preparing you guys for this huge step as a family!! We'll continue to pray that everything goes smoothly (and quickly!!) and that you'll have a peace in your heart about all of this as you wait. We love you guys!
