I was wrong. It's not referrals that are expected next week. Referrals are where the overseas adoption board matches a family with a child. What is coming next week is a batch of files that overseas is asking the agency to find families for. When we placed our request to be matched with Twiggy Four last June his file was not complete yet. So at this point, that is what we're hoping for. A completed file that then our agency will tell overseas that they have a family for. The overseas adoption board will then consider the match. That process is known to take several months. Once a match is approved it's another 4-6 months before travel.
The agency did ask me this morning if Twiggy Four's file is not amongst the ones they receive next week if we wanted to consider another child that is paperwork ready. I'm not ready to go there yet. Please pray that God will make it abundantly clear His will for our family.
