Adoption Update

We met with our adoption specialist last night and she basically informed us that it is likely that we will have a referral for a child before we are eligible. What this means is that we will move to the top of the list and sit there until we are eligible to adopt again, which is 6 months from the birth of Logan or June 10th. Once we are eligible, we then have to tell them we are ready for a referral. At that point we would become active again and would most likely get a referral within a month or so. Typical time between a referral and travel is 2-3 months; however, the courts in Ethiopia close for 6 weeks during the months of August and September so it is most likely that we will travel no earlier than late September. Personally, we are hoping for October or November, as the older Logan is the better for us to be able to leave him while traveling. We know God already has a plan for how this will all work out and we will put our full trust in Him. Thank you for your prayers!

2 months!

Logan had his two month check-up yesterday. He weighed 13 pounds and was 24 1/2" long. The doctor said he is a very happy and healthy baby. He is starting to smile more and more each day, and when the doctor was listening to his heart and lungs he was cooing and smiling at her. It was adorable. Then he was given his immunization shots so there were no more smiles the rest of the day. He slept a lot during the day and was a little fussy throughout the night. We're hoping he bounces back today. For the past week he has started giving me four hour stretches at night. I am hoping in the next couple of weeks that stretches to 6 - 8 hours. :) Enjoy a few more pics!
