At the end of August, we were told that it would be about 4-6 weeks until paperwork was ready for 20 available children, the final step before they were able to be matched with their forever family.  The 4-6 weeks has recently passed without news, but Jamey made contact with our adoption coordinator and she said that she would be very surprised if we didn't receive a referral before November 1st.  That's less than two weeks away! 
We've recently been feeling like this process is never going to end, but there could be a big boost to our resolve if this news about a referral is true.  Either way, God is awesome and we continue to trust that He will bring our child home in His perfect time--even though things haven't been happening as we thought they would.
On another note, we've begun leading an Orphanology small group at church, and are loving discussing with other believers the importance of caring for orphans and the oppressed.  If you're looking for a book that will challenge you, I recommend this one!
