Almost one year---

April 23, 2007 is the day that we were added to the list. I remember the day and remember being so happy and filled with excitement. I honestly felt that we would travel to bring our son home this year. I realized a few weeks ago that it was not going to be a possibility. Man, that was a hard day. That day was Tuesday, April 8th. I didn't know it at the time but our dossier was logged in that same day. So now thinking back I really had something to be thankful for that same day. For the days ahead I am going to try and remember that our son will come home. It may not be this year, but it will happen. Here is a little poem that I know we have all heard before but I wanted to post it again.

I haven't met you yet or seen your face,
but in my heart you hold a place.
My hope grows with each passing day,
even though you're miles away.
I know you're there waiting for me,
as I am here waiting to see,
the child God has sent from above,
to make me a mother and share all my love.

I'm glad to hear that your dossier is now logged in. I am hoping that there will be good news coming your way sooner than you expect. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers.

That's great news about your dossier! I know this wait is excruciating at times, but you have such faith to help you through. Unfortunately, I think the wait is hard right up until the moment we get to hold our children, but what a moment that will be! ~Gina

Hi Jessica,
I don't have any idea how much longer we have. I hope things pick up soon. We need more than just 1 or 2 referrals a month. What number are you now?
