There are many exciting things happening around me these days. My friend Tara is traveling to ET to go get her girls as I type. Julie got her dossier certified today and is finished with her paper chase. Kim has filed for a court date for custody of her daughter. I am soooooooooo happy for these families! I have the jittery, excitement caused tingles happening deep in my gut. Oh the blissful vicarious living I plan to do in the coming months.

I do have some juicy little tid bits of info to whisper into your ear. Ya ready? Well, it seems that our agency is hoping to give out TEN referrals per month. Yup, can you believe that!? That's almost double what they have been currently able to do. It has been my constant prayer that our referral would come in June (Okay, I just divulged the deepest longing of my heart in telling you that) I have been pleading and praying for God's favor to be bestowed upon us and for a quick referral. Our paper chase took SOOOO long. NINE agonizing months to be exact. I am praying to be blessed with a referral on the short end of the 5-7 month time frame we've been given. If AWAA can hold true to it's goal June could be very likely for us since they tend to give more boy referrals than girls and last I checked we were somewhere near the 20th in line for a boy. So it's not necessarily likely but it doesn't feel so far fetched anymore. Let's just say that it's no longer impossible.

We are ever so aware of the fact that court closures loom on the horizon of our referral timeline. It would be agonizing for us to have to wait through October for a court date. Of course, I continually remind myself God's timing is perfect and that no one WANTS to be caught in the closures but alas every year someone's gotta do it, and that we are no special case. Yet, all that comes with a DEEP hope/prayer that it's not going to be us this year.

The whole AWAA YG is a buzz with guesses as to when the next batch of referral is going to be handed down. We were told it was going to be a big one. ((( SMILE))) When the news hits I'll be sure to keep you informed.

It's so good to hear that June is a possibility. I don't want you to have to wait through the court closures either. I can tell you from experience that it is not fun. We'll be praying.

With Love,

I hope you get your referral in June too. That would be great! :)
