The Wait is on

Well finally we have a little to update everyone on. Everything has gone so smoothly up until our file to Thailand. Our dossier was recieved by the Thai Red Cross on December 31st we had to be formally approved by the Thai board in order to be put on the waiting list. WACAP could not give us a definitive timeline so we waited and prayed. Finally the director of Asian programs for WACAP went over to Bangkok last month and visited with all orphanages. We were then informed that we had been approved in February Woohoo!!! We were also told that our file had gone on to the DSDW. Of course me being me panicked and sent several emails asking what this meant. I thought that maybe some questions had arised about us and that we could possibly be denied. I was told by the Thai coordinator that no Rindy you have already been approved and that the DSDW is like the departmen of social and welfare services here in the states. So everything has to go through them. After reading through the paperwork on the process I am still a bit confused about the whole thing usually your paperwork does not go to the DSDW until they have found a match for you so either they have a child in mind for us right now or I dont know. YIKES I hate not knowing.

Congrats! It's amazing to go so long with no news and then to be given such good news!....I'm the same way...kinda leary at first! But the fact that your file has gone to the DSDW is great!

God is good and our kiddos won't be home a day late!
Enjoy your good news!


ps. our son is at the TRC and we got a new update this week from the WACAP trip last month. everything we know of the TRC is outstanding! i don't think our kids could be in a better place! :D but the Thailand program in general just seems to be exceptional and their care for their children is second to none.q
