At long last...the Dixons are #1 in line for a referral! We found out today that the last family ahead of us received their referral today. It seems like we have been saying "any day now" for months...but this time, it should be ANY DAY NOW! Really. If you are like us, it may be hard getting too excited after such a long wait. It is starting to seem a bit distant. But we are confident that when we see the picture(s) of Selah, our hearts will be more officially and completely involved.

We still need to get some immunizations for the international travel. Also, we are considering taking our oldest son, Noah, on the first trip to Ethiopia with us - so he'll need to get crackin on his passport. Jenny is already bracing herself for the chaos that will ensue upon receiving a referral. There will be so much to do related to packing, preparations and all travel arrangements. And we're gonna need this year's tax return back asap :)

Thanks for your continued prayers and encouragement. Hopefully, we will have some great news soon!

So excited for you guys. I know this has been a long process. I'll keep you in our prayers.

Jake and I are also saying "any day now." I'm 39 weeks today and still just waiting.
