Little update

I joined a yahoo group a few weeks ago for families with Imagine Adoption. It has been really amazing to meet people in the same place as me, it was beginning to feel like I was alone in all this! It has been awesome to read all the messages and get everyones updates. Although I have not heard of any october referrals yet, there have been lots of court dates and visas issued. Quite a few people are going to Ethiopia this month to pick up their children! Praying for some october referrals and our homestudy update to be completed. We are still waiting for our social worker to type up the update, then the head lady at Christian Adoption Services will ok it, then it will get sent to Anne Scully (head of Alberta adoptions) to ok our age change and then it will be sent to our agency to officially change our file. Hopefully this all happens soon as I would hate to wait any longer because of this update! The good news is, on the yahoo group database, there are only 3 people ahead of us asking for the same age...not to get too excited though cause it could still be a year. We are trying to stay patient because the more excited you get, the harder the wait becomes! So bring on the October referrals!!


  1. I am praying this will go quickly for you now and that the AB office won't take too long!

    Can hardly wait to see what the next few months will bring you!

  2. Hi Bekah,
    We are with Imagine Adoption also! How exciting to be so close to a referral!
    Your dogs are sweet! We are real dog lovers too...we have one right now but keep talking about getting him a sibling!
    How did you find the Yahoo group? I can't seem to find it.


    you can go here, you have to ask to join and then they will accept you! I just joined a couple weeks ago, it's great!

  4. lynchtae, do you have a blog too? I'd love to add you!
