WE GOT A REFERRAL!!!!
Two little boys! I can't show you pictures but I can tell you they are adorable! And for blogging purposes they will heretofore be referred to as Big B and Baby B.
Ill go ahead and answer some of are current FAQ's about where we are in our process.
What is a referral?
It means we got names, pictures, medical history, and personal info on these sweet boys that have been matched with us. It means their babies' home felt that we are the best parents to parent these babies and they are the best babies to for in our family.
How old are they?
Two and one an half. Yes, we can do the math. Yes we are crazy. Yes I will need you to bring us dinner for
awhile the next three-five years.
We are waiting for a court date. There is an investigation wait, a paper work wait, and court date wait. Basically there could be anywhere from four to eight more months to wait.
And after that?
We head to Uganda for a couple weeks of bonding, a court process and a visa process. The whole thing will take about six weeks. We will be taking the girls with us and possibly have some grandparents to attain in and out to help is care for the girls as well as just managing life with four!
We come home. We'll discuss more about how that will look later this week which I hereby declare adoption week in the Hodges household!
