After what seems like an eternity, we finally got a referral!
(In English means we were matched with a baby).
We’ve decided to call her Ruby.
Projected travel time: 6-8 months from now (lots of paperwork and time in court).
Not to worry, we have about 10 bazillion house projects to do and finally a reason to do them.
We will keep you all updated with new pictures as they come in and updates on travel as we find out.
Thank you for all your support and love over the last 32 months.
