I feel like I am back in Grad school typing papers!

15 pages of life history later the application and self study is ready to be mailed, along with a family picture and a check for the initial fee (as Dan said the first of many, lol). I was told today that we would be looking at a wait of 1 1/2 to 2 years for a referral and then another 3-4 months wait for travel after we accept the referral. The wait will be a bit longer because we will be requesting a GIRL (having 2 boys at home allows us to request gender). It is so hard to imagine waiting that long, but I know that timewise it may be perfect for our family. Landon and Leyton will both be in school (at least part time) which would give me more one on one time the baby may need for the extra initial bonding. It also gives us that much longer to save money, which was actually a relief to Dan :)
