the next step....

a quick update - we had what feels like a successful appt. today and accepted a referral. he is 2 1/2 years old and they said he's a little (maybe 6 months) delayed but expected to catch up. they said he's bright, speaking well, and friendly with the other kids and caretakers. we saw a photo of him and tho he was a bit younger when it was taken, it's cute and sweet. the next steps are we'll be driving to the orphanage once we get our referral letter from the sda. then we meet with an official in the town where the orphanage is to get permission to visit. we'll post as soon as we can after that visit with more news. thanks so much for your love, prayers, and support. it's gotten us this far! xo beth and sig

How exciting! You are and will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. Ethan was wonderful yesterday. I loaded him up with ice cream and heard very interesting stories about goose poop. :)
