Posted on the CCAA website:
"The CCAA has finished the review of the adoption application documents registered with our office before October 31, 2006. "
What does this mean? Our dossier has passed inspection and has not required any additional information! We are officially ready for adoption.
But, we still wait. The CCAA has referred through December 14, 2005 as of the beginning of December 2007. There are A LOT of LIDs between December 15 and October 9. 298 if my math is correct.
But since they're only getting a few days done at a time, it looks like our referral will be late 2009 or early 2010. That's a couple more years.
The good thing is, I'm not dwelling on it every day. Abby definitely keeps me busy. But every so often, she'll mention something she wants to do for her baby sister: feed her, play dolls with her, etc. At this rate, she'll be a huge help when the baby comes home. Maybe even change a few diapers.
God's timing is always perfect. I'm resting and trusting in His provision.
