Got word from FOI(our Agency) that they expect we will get a referral in "4-6 months". They are conservative and have not given an info out, in any areas of this process, unless they are assured of it. I have appreciated their integrity in this, and so this excites me(obviously).So a Sept- November 2010 is our window and then travel 6-8 weeks after that.
So we know Julia has been born(as we expect the referral will come with her at 6-9 months old,give or take).
This is exciting but also adds an urgency in my Daddy heart that my little girl is out there and I want her loved and cared for. So my prayer is that she would, ideally be in foster care, and GOOD foster care, getting loved on, held, fed and cared for. If less than that, that the care givers in the orphanage will be exceptional and caring and that she will come to us developed enough that she can be cared for to be "whole", developmentally, and that we can nourish her body and spirit to catch up to where it needs to be.
