Encouragement

Well, a little while ago I was feeling a bit...discouraged about the whole adoption stuff.  It can be very overwhelming and discouraging, but today hope sprung anew!  We got to speak to a couple who recently adopted their 2nd child from Colombia using our same agency.  They received a referral for a 6 month old girl only two months after having their application approved.  For us that was both exciting and terrifying.  For a point of reference, we will probably be getting our approval sometime in July/August, which means that things could go very fast from here.  Crazy fast. In other somewhat related news, although Arnold and I originally were very set on requesting a girl from Bogota or Santander we decided to requst a baby of either gender from any area.  We're leaving it up to God and ICBF's will.    Medellin?  Cali?  Boyaca?  Here we come!
