Dossier to Ethiopia!

The day has finally come~our dossier was sent to ET on Monday which means we are officially on the referral waiting list at number...

This means there are 41 families ahead of us. Some families are requesting 2 children, or requesting 1 or 2 children, which lengthens our wait a bit. On the other hand, some families are specifically requesting  boy or girl, or a certain age range. In addition, any family can change their criteria at anytime so nothing is ever set in stone. The # of referrals each month also varies from month to month. This is another factor that will affect our wait. I feel somewhat at peace knowing our documents are all in order and we will wait for now until we someday get that call.


  1. How awesome- it seems we have both been in dossier chase mode :)Good luck with the wait. I love your music list on the blog. I probably listen to I will Wait once or twice a day and think of our little girl in Ethiopia....its cool to put a sound track to our wait. I need to figure out how to do this

  2. Congrats Aja! I am happy for you and your family!

  3. Aja! Thank you for your comment! I'm so excited your dossier is in ET! The wait is hard but the end is sweet! Totally worth it!! Will be praying for y'all!
