Well, after a few fixes to our dossier and the final approval from the Ethiopian Embassy in Washington, DC, we have our DTE (Dossier To Ethiopia) date of July 27th. We are glad to have the paperwork in the hands of the Ethiopian government. The next step is to wait. As our adoption agency receives referrals from the orphanages they work with in Ethiopia, they will match children with families that are the best fit. Their best guess is that we will wait 4-8 months for our referral. We have asked for a boy ages 0-4 yrs. and said we would be open to sibilings.
Our little guy (or two) is out there waiting for a family and we can't wait to welcome him home!!
