How long have I been waiting to post this?

On February 29, 2008, the clock started ticking. A beautiful 14 month-old boy was placed in our home with the intent of adoption. No one knew exactly how long the process would take. We were told that the upper limit was 18 months.

The 18 month mark was in August of 2009.

The clock ticked on.

On June 25, 2010, the clock will finally stop at the 28 month mark.

Oliver will become a Blandings at 1 p.m. PST.

God is good, all the time. Even when the time feels like, well ... a long time.

Congratulations! Two of our came to live with us when he was almost four...his half brother started coming for visits when he was 2 and stayed when he was 3. Their adoptions were final when the older one turned 16 and the younger one was 13.....waiting surely had it's difficult days.
