Today we received notification that we have a LID of June 9th!! We are so happy to finally get to this time. Now our dossier is being translated. Our next step is waiting for our referral. We do not know were we are on the list, but we do know that we will definitely be in the mix to get one. Before now it was just a small chance of getting one, but having a log-in-date our chances have improved greater. Noel wondered what will be harder, waiting for a referral or getting the referral and waiting to go get her.
We are currently at the SBC convention this week. This is where it all started. I was able to meet Lynette Ezell whose husband was a catalyst to finally commit to adopt, and Noel was able to meet Russell Moore the author of Adopted for Life. We have recommended that book to many people. Both of these families have adopted children, and what an encouragement they are to us.
