3 down, how many more to go?

Today marks 3 months that our dossier has been in Ethiopia. Unfortunately we don't have any updates to the current process within the country, but we're still hopeful and prayerful that an overall solution will soon be put into place by MOWYA, so the many waiting children will be united with their families in an the most ethical and efficient manner possible.

We have a conference call with our agency later this week regarding referral and travel preparation.  We have absolutely no idea when we'll be able to use the information from this upcoming meeting, but each meeting helps keep our anticipation high and our whining/sulking at a lower level! ;)

Actually, we really enjoy the conference calls with our agency, especially at this stage in the game. With our agency, once your dossier has arrived in country, they only communicate through email (with the exception of scheduled meetings).  They do this purposefully so that couples don't see their name on the caller ID and think it's "The Call."  I completely appreciate their protocol regarding this, but it will definitely be nice to hear our case worker's voice, rather than reading an email. 

That's about it for now, I'll be sure to post after our meeting if we're informed of any changes or updates.  Enjoy this beautiful summer weather and don't forget to say a prayer for our beautiful boys!
