Swim Lessons and Homestudy!!!

Precious...ha. Reese is doing SwimRanch again this year. She is doing great!
We were sad to see Mimi leave us this morning. She had been here almost 2 weeks...so I guess have to let her go home to my Dad. Thanks Dad for letting us borrow her!!!
We love you Mimi!

Beck is getting so big!
He is now sleeping through the night without waking up...YAY!
He is also spitting up a little less....YAY!!
And...he is actually swallowing food and somewhat enjoying it...YAY!!!
Please notice her little pose she has going on. Hilarious...her little hand flipped up. Nice.
Sweet girl.

In other news...we have our homestudy this Monday!!! yay. That means we are just that much closer to our little ones. I got these updates in an email the other day from our agency regarding current wait times:

a. Current Average wait time for referral for child age 0-12 months: 8 months (longest waiting families still waiting for referrals have been waiting 9.5 months currently).

b. Current Average wait time for referral for child age 13 months and older: 7 months (longest waiting families still waiting for referrals have been waiting 9 months currently)

c. Current Average wait time for court date: 2-3 months from time of acceptance of referral to finding out court date. Currently approximately 4 weeks from that point to court date. Last court season, court dates were scheduled on average anywhere between 2-5 months from time of acceptance of referral.

c. Current Average time frame for travel for placement/U.S. Embassy appointment: 3-6 weeks from time adoption is approved and finalized by the federal court in Ethiopia.



SO, to sum all of that up...It looks like we are looking at getting them 13/14 months after we get our ppw finished and sent to Ethiopia. Hopefully we will have that done in another month or so. So...that puts us at about 16 more months from now...meaning NOV or DEC of next year. That is all just guessing though...could be shorter...could be longer. Beck will turn 2 next Nov. That would be perfect!!! We shall see.
