Not Much To Tell

Well I guess you could say that I am officially a blogging slacker, but I really haven't had a whole lot of info to blog about.

Our paperwork, is still at the agency in Ottawa.  From the sounds of it, everything should be in China by December.  After that FOI says they keep at China to get us a log-in-date quickly.  Once we are logged into their Waiting Child Adoption program, then we are "Officially Expecting". So here is hoping that we will be logged in before Christmas.

Our agency currently has 12 families waiting for babies, they currently have been matching 10 babies with families per month, but they also have 10 new families join the program per month.  So our social worker told us to expect a 18 to 24 month wait.  I am definitely terrible at math equations, but that doesn't seem like it would be that long of a wait or am I crazy?  Maybe they give you the worst case scenario so you won't be disappointed?

All I know is this process is so unpredictable and everything takes sooooo much longer than you think it should, but it will all be worth it in the end when we are bringing home our little Starfish.
