SIX MONTHS DTE!

Well, I can't really say that we thought we would be here.  But we are.  So many families were getting referrals before the end of the projected wait time, that we had hopes of it not taking the full estimated 6 months.


Then the wait for infant boys got extended to 5-8 months.


GUESS WHAT!?!?!?  WE ARE HAPPY TO BE DTE SIX MONTHS!  


This means that we are IN the journey!  This means that we are over halfway to our little babe(s)!


My positive energy and collection of faith has been refueled!  We feel blessed to be on this journey to Ethiopia.  This precious journey to create our family!  We are privileged to be here!  We feel so blessed!


Therefore, WE CELEBRATE 6 MONTHS DTE!  


Our monthly celebratory "DTE Date Night," however, will have to wait until hubby gets home from his annual guys ski trip (Wednesday).  I have a special dinner planned, thanks to a dear friend who is a great fisherman!  {hint! hint!}


Please continue to join us in celebrating six months of waiting!  Lord, may you bring us to our little one(s) very, very SOON!!!

Debb,
congratulations on your 6 month DTE! How exciting for you! I happened upon your blog and am looking forward to following your journey. My husband and I just arrived home with our daughter about 3 months ago! It was a WONDERFUL journey. Looking forward to reading more!

I remember this point in the process well. Continue to wait well - it will enable you to love your little with greater fervor and passion and devotion when they are with you, especially on the days that are really hard (like today was for our new family of 4). Praying with you, Debb!
