As if it means anything anymore -- and probably the last time I will give this update.

The estimated wait times were updated once more for Ethiopia. For 0-18 months, the expected wait time for referral is now 22 to 28 months.

To put those numbers in context, when I started this process, the wait was 12 to 15 months.

So for laughs, today I am 13 months on the Ethiopia wait list.

I think there are good things ahead. It just doesn't happen through Ethiopia at this point.


  1. Ouch! Wow... I agree good things lie ahead even if it isn't through Ethiopia. I was optimistic with the weekly update and new orphanages, but I guess the reality will show in the numbers.

  2. I'm sorry you're feeling like Ethiopia isn't going to work. It must be really frustrating and upsetting. Is there any reason not to pursue dual processes? (I honestly don't know; we considered it but didn't get too far into it...)
