One Step Closer

Well, we have decided to increase the maximum age of our referral to 30 months up from 18 months. After talking with the agency coordinator, the wait for baby girls in Russia continues to rise exponentially.

TheDentist and I really talked and prayed about this decision. When we started this journey, we were very set on our adoption parameters - we wanted a little girl as young as possible. Unfortunately that is the most requested child for both domestic and international adoptions as well as for the Russian foster care system.

So...our amended homestudy and other documents (with the age of child requested) are at the Secretary of State's office being apostilled. We expect those back in about a week.

One step closer? Let's hope!
