I can’t believe just how fast things are happening. I called Link this morning and got to speak with Amy Miller. They have no age or marriage length requirement, just that the applicants be Christians. Amy gave me a phone number for a woman who does homestudies, and I’ve left a message on her machine. This weekend we even have a meeting with Amy at the Link office.
We’d like to have our homestudy done by Christmas. I think that’s a conservative estimate: from what I’ve heard they can take up to 3 months, and that gives us 4 months until Christmas. I don’t know if I dare hope to be matched or placed by then, because I know that the wait can be a year or more. I guess we’ll see.
We told our parents, and they’re all excited. Karen knows, and Preacher knows, but that’s it. We probably won’t tell anyone else until the homestudy is done. I want to shout it from the rooftops, but it’s too early. I keep thinking that our baby might already be in the womb!
I also bought the first thing for our baby yesterday. It’s a stuffed teddy bear that plays, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” It’s so cute – I just walk by it and think, “That’s for our baby!” It just doesn’t seem real sometimes!
