now we wait... again

We are so excited to be at this point in the process.  The life books have been made, approved and sent.  We've gotten our final acceptance letter, and should be on the wait list as of Monday. I can't believe we're finally here!

So, here is what we know.  The wait could be one month (holy moly) to a year.  Originally we were told  six to nine months, so this new window is a little bigger.  I am going to keep six to nine months in my head, because that seems more likely.  BUT we didn't specify a gender, we are open to multiples, and we have no racial preference (a vast majority of the mothers are African American and we are excited about that!).  So basically Debbie, the woman who oversees the process, told us our wait probably won't be super long.  I have no idea how many people are on the list, but I'll take her word for it.

Lute is now asking about a baby brother and baby sister on a regular basis.  I don't think he has any idea the impact it will have on his world, but I am pretty sure he is going to be really excited to have a playmate.  He is the best... so much fun these days.  Two in just two weeks!  I can't believe my little baby is becoming such a big boy.  


  1. How exciting!!!

    Does this mean that you will get a baby? Or would it more likely be an older child?

  2. The likelihood is that we will get a newborn, although we said we were willing to take a baby up to 6 months old.
