First the good, awesome, blissful and exciting news: We found out today that we are APPROVED for adoption and are now on the waiting list for a child.
The other part, that many of you know about is that by the time we receive a referral or assignment of a child, we have to both be off the obesity range on the BMI chart. This is a Korean child, and this is a requirement of this agency in Korea. We both agreed to do this, and could have adopted a different way if it offended us.
So, that said, we are told it is 4 - 6 months until we can receive a referral. I thought things would move a lot faster (yep, I'm new to International adoption!) and was telling you in January that I needed to lose the weight (about 27 pounds) by May. Now that things have slowed down, I have until September at the earliest to lose that much.
So, that's the good news and the deadline update. I wasted most of Jan, Feb, and half of March, so now it's time to get serious.
I'm thinking a good point standing in the April, May, June and July challenges will get me there!
