Where am I on the waiting list? I am still officially #14 as they only update you once a month, so I won't get my new number until early-mid May. But, it would appear that I am at least #12 based on 2 known referrals ahead of me. And, how do I feel about that...
- Excited, for sure, to be advancing quickly up the waitlist;
- Slightly concerned that Julie, my caseworker, will want to call me when I'm in the heart of the outback without any form of communication. (Is that a red flag that a prospective parent cannot be reached? hmm...) You never know how fast or slow the referrals come in;
- Parts of me would like the list to slow down slightly because I feel like I'm guaranteed to get caught by the court closures in Ethiopia during August and September and I think it will be more difficult to see and know who my daughter is without the ability to go over and get her.... and also knowing that for 2 months, nothing can happen to speed that process up.
