Halfway - Sort Of

(This sweet "special buddy" as the boys call it was a gift from Nan to our baby girl. It's in her room on her dresser, waiting for her to love on it.)

Today, we have been DTR (dossier to Rwanda) for four and a half months. That means - see if you can follow this convoluted line of thought - that we are half way through the longest estimated timeframe for the longest wait.

Let me explain (No, there is too much. Let me sum up.). The estimated wait time for our approval is currently 7-9 months. We are half way to nine months. After that, all the other estimated wait times are 2 months and shorter. So we're halfway through the longest of the longest. 

That makes me happy! Half way! Hurray! And sad. Only half way. Seriously? And anyway, all those times are estimated, so really it could be shorter. Or longer, but I don't let myself think about that.

So here's to halfway through the longest of the longest. And may reality be much, much shorter.

We pray shorter, but Perfect Timing none the less :)

Every day brings us closer, friend. Every single day.

Yay! Hopefully much shorter! I read your blog...we are adopting from Rwanda as well...just thought I would introduce myself. Congrats on the halfway point!

Yahoo for half-way (probably longer!) And for the Princess Bride reference! ;) We're praying with you!
