The new list from ICBF was posted and I thought I would share.  This is copied from a GREAT blog by a mom who has adopted from Colombia, and I believe her husband is Colombian.  Her blog is: raisingcolombiankids.blogspot.com/

The most recent Wait List was published by ICBF on April 8, 2009. The ICBF Wait List applies to adoptions through ICBF only — not through CASAS PRIVADAS. This list DOES NOT reflect special needs children. The definition of special needs are children with disabilities, children over 8 years of age, and sibling groups of 3 or more. There also hasn’t been a lot of movement since December, all dates that have advanced are in BOLD and RED.

Age of Child ——- Date of Application Approval by ICBF

Child 0-12 months —— Nov-2005
Child 13 – 23 months —- Nov-2005
Child 2 years ———– May-2005
Child 3 years ———– May-2005
Child 2 – 3 years ——– Mar-2006
Child 3 – 4 years ——– May-2005
Child 4 years ———– Jul-2005
Child 5 years ———– Jan-2006
Child 4 -5 years ——– Jan-2006
Child 5 – 6 years ——- May-2007
Child 6 years ———– Nov-2008
Child 7 years ———– Nov-2008
2 Siblings 0 – 4 years — Mar-2007
2 Siblings 0 – 5 years — Jul-2006
2 Siblings 0 – 6 years — Aug-2007
2 Siblings 0 – 7 years — May-2008

 So there is movement in the 5-6 and 6 year old groups.  Our dossier was approved Feb. 2008, so hopefully our call will come soon.  As I think I’ve said before, when your name comes to the top of the list, it isn’t a sure deal.  ICBF looks at many families at the same time to find the right one for each family.  So our name could be at the top for a while.  Anyway, good news.
