Wait List

So, it's been a while since we've posted. Maybe you've been waiting for an update, and unfortunately we didn't give you one :). Welcome to the world of adoption! A lot of time is spent just waiting. 

Since our last update, we've completed our Tupperware Fundraiser. Thank you to all of you who participated! It was humbling to see how many people participated! Thanks especially to Andrea, our Tupperware Consultant, for your assistance!

Our dossier is at our agency as we speak. They have reviewed it, and we are on a wait list. What this basically means is that when their active list is shortened, we will move onto the active list, at which point birthmoms will be able to view our profile, and hopefully choose us to parent her child. Our latest update from the agency indicated that we could expect to move to the active list in 3-5 months. From that point, it depends on how soon we get chosen.

In the meantime, we've been busy at home with work, purchasing a few things for the nursery, etc.. 

To make our journey just a little more complicated, Lyndon's mom was diagnosed with stomach cancer, and given 8-12 months to live. As we work through this, and anticipate starting a family, our emotions are mixed. Your prayers for our adoption and Lyndon's mom are appreciated!
