I truly can not believe I am writing this post. Today we received a referral for a precious baby boy. He is just shy of 4 months old. He is super adorable and we love him already!!!

New "Unofficial" Waitlist Number

This has been a very busy month for our agency. Two weeks ago we learned that five children had been referred to families. Today I just read that three more referrals were received and accepted over the weekend so that makes 8 referrals just in the month of April. So excited for those families! For reference, we moved from #42 in December to #32 in March. In April we moved from #32 to #24. At this rate, we could expect to receive a referral earlier than the 9-12 month time frame that has been given, but see, that is the thing with international adoption, it is a roller coaster ride with ups and downs and it could slow right down again next month. Only time will tell....

Ethiopian Boston Marathon Runners

Ethiopia is famous for its long history of world-class runners so it common to see runners from ET and Kenya win the top spots each year. This year the men's first & third place winners, and the women's second place winner all hail from ET. It is exciting to cheer for two countries now!
