As of last Thursday, we are officially waiting for a referral. We found out today that the earliest we should expect a referral would be in 4 months. I'm not even going to mention the possible length of time it could take. So, maybe the first viewing of Gabe will ring in the new year, or be our Valentine's present. Either way, we know he'll appear when the time is right. If you've kept up with our blog from the beginning, you know the whole referral thing is very foreign to us. However, we look forward to the day when we can look at his picture and put a face with the name of the boy in a far away place that we already call our son.

We sent off our dossier to Little Miracles yesterday! It is a huge relief to have that completed and out of our hands. One mile stone down and lots to go. We've gotten lots of questions about when we'll go there and when Gabe will be home. We know the process could take between 7 and 12 months total (we're already 3+ months in). We are not sure of specific time lines yet, but are we'll keep you updated as we find them out!

We have definitely been slacking in terms of giving updates on the process of Gabe's adoption - mostly because we are at a standstill ourselves. We are currently waiting for our I-171H from Louisville. This is the document that allows us to bring an orphan into the country and it must be included in our dossier. We still have a little to do on our dossier, but that will take no time. Actually, we could probably get it done in an afternoon, if we'd actually set the time aside and do it. But, until we get that paperwork back from Louisville, we can't send it off anyways. So, fingers crossed, we'll get it in the mail this week!
We went to the Louisville Zoo this weekend and had a great time. Again, Wyatt's favorite was the cranes. We're all a little baffled by that, but oh well. His quote of the day. He was in a van (see picture) and we asked where he was going. His response..."I'm going to 'Opia to get Gabe. I'll be back in a minute." We about died.
