Two Months Dreaming

We have been on the waitlist to adopt for 2 months today!
2 months.
It feels like a long time. Over 60 days. Over 1440 hours. Over 86400 minutes.
Several years ago, referrals averaged 6 to 18 months for Ethiopia. Now they are averaging 27 months.
So, 2 months? Not barely a dent.
But, I know that one reason there is an extra long wait time is because there is an extra long waitlist! That is a good thing. That means that people love working with AGCI. Our agency has an awesome reputation and is God-centered. Many families adopt through them several times.
Another reason is that our agency is extremely ethical. Another great thing! Our agency does an extensive investigation on the children--this is to ensure they are indeed orphans and have no living family that is able to care for them. There are many corrupt agencies/governments in the world that "sell" children for profit. It is rather disgusting. I am so happy we have an agency that cares for and loves the children they refer.
2 months closer to our baby girl/s? We'll take it!


  1. I admire your patience and perseverance. :)

  2. I am so glad you are in love with AGCI!!! I am so glad they are reputable and do such a good job! Now all I have to do is pray that you have a MUCH shorter wait than 25 months! :-) I'm on it!!!
