The Waiting & Matching Process

Here's a link from our agency's website explaining some of the factors involved in matching a child and family, as well as some of the steps that happen before a referral can be given to a waiting family:


We field regular questions about the length of the process, and when we "expect" news - there really isn't a timeframe, and this link helps explain why that is. We try not to expect anything, and will just be surprised & excited when our turn comes! If you have an urge to ask us a question about our adoption, feel free to inquire about things like the nursery, baby products, minivans, etc. - we can happily give you answers & opinions on those things, just not about adoption timeframes & updates.

This is so important for people to know! I thought I was going to lose my mind with people asking me WHEN we were bringing the kids home. We "thought" they were coming home in Nov. or Dec. and we are just going to get them next week! Crazy! I know people are just concerned for us and know how much we want the kids home, but I never had an answer. You just never know - not until you are on a plane heading home with them (which I PRAY will be us May 9th!). It really is God's timing and it will happen when it is supposed to. You guys are in our prayers!
