Movin' on up
Geographically, not economically :) Matt and I are moving to Seattle! Matt has accepted a position as Associate Pastor of Growth at a church called The Journey. It's not exactly going to be an immediate move, but more of a process over the next couple of months- we'll keep you updated as we progress.
Many have asked how it will affect (effect? I never know which one to use) our adoption. All I can tell you is what our Family Coordinator had to say via email:
"Hi Nicole, I will make the changes. This should not affect your adoption. If you do not receive a referral by June then you will need to contact your social worker to do an addendum which you can take with you to Ethiopia upon travel. Blessings." Good news, eh?
But it brings me to another frequently asked question: How long until you receive a referral? I believe they are quoting a 5-7 month wait for an infant boy referral. So for those of you counting down with us that would be sometime between July and August (Lord willing, of course!). Looks like we'll have plenty to keep us busy while we wait!
