We have Approval!!

Well we found out at 9:11 this morning that we received ICAB approval on May 15!!! Our file reached ICAB on February 26, so that is roughly a three month wait but it will be well worth it in the end. I am just so excited to finally be on the official waitlist. I'm really hoping to receive a referral in two years or less. I would love to have the child home by May 2010, but I think this is overly optomistic, so I'm hoping by the end of 2010 we will be parents!! Now to settle in for another long wait!

i don't remember if i congratulated you yet on this milestone. for me, waiting for ICAB approval seemed to be the looongest wait. i felt like i just coasted for the rest. i liked the photos of your garden, too. it's so different what we can grow based on the weather. ~emilie~
