New Year Updates

Annika got her fiberglass wrap over her splint today. It is an exclusive design by Taj. The Tootsie Pop is courtesy of the "candy girl," a white-haired lady, who took Annika's "picture" (for which she smiled!) in x-ray. Since it is a re-break, she will wear the cast for 6 weeks rather than 4 weeks -just because. The orthopedist assured me that there is nothing wrong with Annika. It is just "bad luck."

There hasn't been much to report on the adoption front-well nothing that has to do specifically with our adoption. Two groups of families from our agency received referrals in October. The first group has all been approved by the court. The children now belong to them, and they will be traveling later this week! YEAH!

The second group from October has not yet heard about their court dates, and there have been no other referrals other than the family who has accepted a waiting older sibling set of three. This family is also waiting for a court date. Some referrals are to come "soon."

We have been pretty discouraged by the delays, but we keep reminding ourselves that we haven't yet waited the 4-7 months that we were told to expect. As I write this, it has *only* been 3 months, 1 week, and 2 days.

I keep checking my email to see if there is any news on court dates, but nothing... yet, so I will post this.
