Referral

Y was finally and officially referred to us today! (Just to remind everyone we have been patiently waiting for this moment for, um...awhile) It has been a long journey, people. Judging from the looks Y shared with us via her referral photos, things have been tough for her lately too! We did glean some new information from her paperwork:
Her birth date is August 3rd (August is THE birthday month in my family and extended family)
She needs to put on some weight (and we were worried about her candy consumption)
The spellings of her name are as varied as Bjork's wardrobe choices.

Summary:
Gladney (our adoption agency) is now working on our case.
Our paperwork will be submitted for a court date.
Our court date will come at an unknown, but hopefully soon, date!

Things are good!

Arkansas is good, but I think I'm allergic to it :)
Are you from here?
We grew up in NW Arkansas, but moved about 12 years ago. Moving is never easy and we miss our friends like crazy, but we know this is where God's wants us.

i think you should try to have Bjork's starpower speed along the process. Maybe she could make a trip for you? Or you could do swan-inspired decor for the room?

you know where to find me for more ideas.

Thanks for your comment! Funny enough, I've had your blog open for hours trying to catch up on your story as I have been out of the loop with blogs. Congrats on your "referral!" :-) I felt the same way receiving ours well after our kids were on our heart and in our minds.
Blessings,
Kristy
