In case you were wondering...

I almost forgot our adoption update...notice that our little ticker at the top of the page says that we have been waiting 7 months for our referral. So it is about that time...the predicted wait time is 5-7 months. There is a group of 4 families that are next in line for a baby boy, and we are one of those families! I found that out last Friday as I was rushing out the door to an English Dept meeting at school. Of course, I had to check the Yahoo Group one more time for any referral news. Needless to say, I was quite breathless by the time I found Chris to tell him the news (lucky guy - he was on lunch duty).

Anyway, we could receive our referral anytime now...I think...Crazy!

Morning Chris and Anna...love to see answers to prayer! You have walked through this process with grace and have been inspirational to many. I am sure that not seem that way inside at times but being on the outside, I for one among many, am blessed!
Love you!

Hey Team Reno!! Anxiously awaiting a call for any of the four of us! I read on the Martins blog that Vince spoke to Duni and she's tied up in paperwork, so we might have to wait longer, but at least we're all waiting together! (the Halls)
