"Your documents were translated and a referral can come at any time."
This is super exciting. But, really it means that we could get a referral on Monday or not until next spring. That's where we are. I am wishing and praying for a successful referral for us by Christmas. If anyone wants to pray for us- please include that.
I have stopped buying any kind of kid stuff, since we really have no idea who might be coming home with us. We hope for 2, but it could be one. It could be girl-girl, boy-girl, boy-boy. Probably toddler ages. You see why it would be silly to buy anything. Except maybe outside play stuff? But then it would just sit there all winter and not get used. We have one car seat, but we need to wait on the second one- to see if there will be a second little body that needs it, and what size. We have a small amount of bath toys and kitchen stuff. I did actually buy a lunchbox this week... HAD to. It had 3 little matryoshkas on it. I hope someday a daughter of mine will take it to school.
That's about it. It's still beautiful and summery here. We are trying to finish up some outside projects before it gets cold out. We need to stain the rest of our fence, find a place to store our new canoe, things like that. Yes we got a canoe! It's been so fun. Here's my favorite picture so far. John and I went to Stanley Lake with friends for our last camping trip. We successfully got Roscoe in the canoe. Sauganash did not like it. No surprise.
