A New Direction

Today begins a new direction for our family. We have accepted the referral of an 8-year-old Chinese girl through the adoption agency All Gods Children International. We received this referral October 18 via email in a message containing three pictures and a translated medical profile. Not really a lot to go on, but this appears to be typical with international adoptions. Now that we've accepted the referral, we have one week to fill out and turn in a bunch of contract paperwork and become official clients of this agency. This starts a rather lengthy process (9 to 12 months) after which we will have a new daughter as part of our family. Stay tuned!
