10 Months Waiting...

Has it been 10 months? Am I losing count yet?
Boy, that means we are definitely more than halfway there. I think.
So, what news? We met with our social worker to do our homestudy update. We still have to get a couple updated forms, then it should be complete (I'm hoping by the end of August/beginning of September). Then we get to redo our fingerprints downtown. Yay!
Ethiopian courts stayed open longer than usual, but it looks like they will be taking the annual rainy season vacation sometime between Aug. 22 to Oct. 6. We're not sure how that will affect the wait.
Should we start taking guesses on when we'll get a referral? Or should I wait to our 1 year anniversary for that? Suggestions? Right now, I'm guessing between Christmas and Valentines Day. But I think, at some point, I would like to get everyones guesses for the exact day that we'll get the call, and maybe I will come up with a prize for the one who guesses closest. Yes, I think I might just do that.

God's timing is always perfect. Since He is God, and we are not, we don't understand what is going on in our lives. We have to approach each day as important, and let things go the way they are supposed to. Take it on Faith. Sounds schmaltzy, I know, but life is brief and eternity is forever. So we will let Him be God.
Now, that you have my blog linked, I guess I need to update it.

You may not have known this, but I have been reading your blog to stay up-to-date on what's going on with your family since we never see each other. It's reassuring to know there is a relation with teeth just as bad as mine ;) I can't imagine constantly having to keep my house tidy for that one special buyer, not knowing when they will step in door. We'll be praying that everything works out according to His plan. I'll give my birthday as the guess for the referral date: January 19, 2010.

I will give another date as referral January 14, 2010, someone who is related to you.
And my blog moved - its http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/3XN42NVH46VX4AT3HHCHW5X2UE which is Henny's profile on yahoo. Geocities is closing down and my webpage will be moving.

Nice guess Michelle! Hmmm, January 19? Isn't that someone's birthday? I can't remember who right now, but I'm sure it will come to me!
I'm so glad that you read my blog (I always wonder if there is anyone besides mom out there). I love when I get your periodic emails with photos of the girls, they are growing so fast! I miss you guys so much and tell Dave I said hi.

January 14 is someone's birthday too! You know my father in law's birthday is December 25, but since it is impossible to get a referral on a holiday, we can rule that one out.
