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!
