It is hard to believe it has been nearly 10 months since we did trip one to Russia. We are really excited to say we have had a referral come through, and we are leaving in less than two weeks to go and meet ????. If you don't know what a referral is, it is a child/children that have been matched to your family for adoption.
Timeline from now:
August 2012 trip one to meet the 'referral'
Lots of waiting
Trip two to go to court and be granted custody, fingers crossed
30 days later, trip 3 to pick up and bring them home.
This has been a long journey for our family, we are hopeful this time it will happen.
