Well, we have officially been on the waitlist for 6 months and 1 day now! This is a pretty monumental point, since the average wait for referral is about 9 months. As usual, the month of December is going to fly by. We're excited about the possibility of a call coming as soon as March.
We did something a little unusual this year and spent Thanksgiving in the Caribbean on a cruise with my entire family - 10 of us. We had a wonderful time. We realized this would be the last time we packed our suitcases and went off on a journey before we go to see our little one in Ethiopia - our last trip before we're parents. Next trip: AFRICA!
