Great news! We received an email late on Friday that our dossier was shipped to Ethiopia. Wow, that was a quick turn around from CWA! They said it should arrive in 4 or 5 days, so right about now, it's probably somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean.
Our official tick-tock, start-the-clock date is January 22, 2010. Yay! Our hope is that we receive a referral within 9 months. Sooner would be awesome, but we know there are others who are just as anxious in front of us. We did request up to 18 months of age, so perhaps that might help. Keep us and Baby E in your prayers!
