Three posts in a row…. unbelievable.

I talked to Beth, our case worker today and actually got some hard facts!  It’s the first news we’ve heard since Feb. 2008!  And I’m not typically a patient person, so imagine the duress I’ve been under for the past 14 months!  (Not really.)  Anyway…. the bad/disappointing news is that we are still only on the 3-4 year old list.  We sent in our request to be moved to the 3-6 year old list  a few months back… but alas, our file in Bogota has not been updated to show this.  So, as this time, there are 2000 families on the 3-4 year old list and we are #155.  They are placing 10-15 children per month, so that would put us at a referral summer of 2010.  Good grief.  BUUUUT, once we are moved to the higher age bracket, the number of families decreases and our place in line (Feb. 2008) stays the same.  So our wait time will be dramatically shortened. Yippy Skippy.

As far as paperwork expiring in that time, we are good until summer of 2010.  So we shouldn’t have to refile our I600A.  We will have to update the normal finance/work/health papers so they are current when we travel.

I’m feeling the need to take a Spanish class!
