I got word tonight that our homestudy report is not ready yet. We thought it would be ready for us to view (rough draft) this week. We finished our visits 3 weeks ago...It's so hard to wait for this final piece for our dossier!! Our social worker has had some delay on the homestudy she's working on in line just before ours and so, basically it sounds like because they're done in order...ours is kind of bumped. Word is, it will be a few more weeks before we see it.
Please pray with us that it will come sooner. We REALLY want to be on the waitlist in May. We turned in our homestudy packet in January, so it's hard not to be bummed that it's taking so long. I also had a conference call with Gladney's Ethiopia program and families yesterday, and the update is the current average wait for 0-12 month infants is 8 months. That means, if we get on the waitlist in May, we'll likely be waiting till January for a referral. Of course, things could change by the time our turn comes up. I'm SO ready to be onto the next stage of this process! Especially when our dossier is all but put together and waiting for that silly homestudy and CIS approval.
Please pray for the paperwork to be able to get done quickly, and for us (ME) to have patience in God's timing. I know his timing for our referral is perfect...Once we see that sweet little face we wouldn't wish a minute of our timing to be different.
