The list just came out from ICBF with the dates of the latest adoption referrals from Colombia.  It helps us “waiters” to gauge, sort of, when we might expect a referral call.  Oh, that glorious day!  This came out on Feb. 24th, 2009:

Age of Child / Date of Application Approval by ICBF

Child 0-12 months / Sep-2005
Child 13 – 23 months / Sep-2005
Child 2 years / May-2005
Child 3 years / Feb-2005
Child 2 – 3 years / Mar-2006
Child 3 – 4 years / Apr-2005
Child 4 years / Jun-2005
Child 5 years / Jan-2006
Child 4 -5 years / Jan-2006
Child 5 – 6 years / Mar-2007
Child 6 years / Sep-2008
Child 7 years / Sep-2008

The list didn’t change much from December, as the government agencies in Colombia take holidays from Dec. 15th through Jan. 15th.  The red ones are the new ones.  But as you can see for the child who was 6 who went to their forever family…. the family’s approval date was Sept 2008.  OURS IS FEB. 2008!  So when ICBF receives our upgraded age request and makes a note in our file, the CALL COULD BE SOON!  This is good news for us.  I would love to spend July and/or August in Bogota…. instead of Phoenix, but this is not about me… right?!?

I also just figured out that I would be OK with the call coming soon.  I was freaked out about my book deadline, but even if the call came tomorrow, there is enough time for me to finish writing several weeks before we would travel.  That is of course, assuming I could concentrate on writing after receiving the referral call… which is highly unlikely.  I’ll be making lists and shopping and bribing my brother into watching our dog.   But I’m more at peace with the whole deal at the moment. <3
