Red Letters Campaign- Top 20

I forgot to mention that Dustin and I are in the top twenty families now waiting for a referral. We still have a long way to go but just a few months ago the line seemed ENDLESS and though AWAA does not use the dossier numbering system anymore hearing that we were dossier number 59 might as well have been #590 to us at the time. I am excited that progress has been made.

I don't exactly know where we stack up in the line because I prefer to keep a loose grip on those details. I like to keep some space because I know how I can be. The temptation to obsess would be too great for me.

The time lines for referrals have been increased from 5-7 months to 7-9 months. August will be our 7th month waiting and so we can look forward to receiving a referral anytime thereafter (I think it would make a pretty great anniversary gift for me and Dustin to get ours in August... but that may be too soon.) Since our referral will come during the court closure (if everything goes as planned) AWAA has advised that we expect 4 months from date of referral to travel. If we get a referral at the tail end of the waiting timeline that would put travel around February. Needless to say we should be home with The Boy before we hit the TWO YEAR mark in the process which would be May 7th, 2009.

Jen, I'm praying for you guys! I can't even begin to imagine what this waiting is like. You have been on such a long journey and I'm sure there are days when it's unbearable. Hang in there and know that we all love you and are praying that you will get the call any day now!!
