We have hit a milestone! Our agency (IAC) says that the average wait time from when you have your profile up ( after you've finished all of your paperwork and homestudy) to when a child is placed with you is 6-18 months. The beginning of December marked our 6 month point! I have to admit, the time has just flown by. It feels as if it were just yesterday that we went to our intensive weekend at the agency, when in fact it was February. And I really am having a hard time grasping that Christmas is on Saturday! Remember when you were a kid, and the month of December just dragged, and Christmas Eve was the longest night of the year? Now the year just flies by. Which is why you have to enjoy all the little moments, even though sometimes, for some reason, we find it easy to forget that.
Yesterday, my mom and I baked cookies for about six hours, and I still have dough in the fridge. I think I will get back to baking tomorrow night, as I want to bring some cookies in for our Secret Santa gift exchange on Wednesday.
I hope everyone is enjoying the little moments!
