My husband and I received our referral with the last small group of children that Holt got, which was on July 17th. We were completely caught by surprise because we didn't know that the kids were coming in smaller groups more frequently. Holt called us directly, so no committee. I also recommend calling and talking to Beth or Kate about the SN you would consider. My husband and I filled out the paper and faxed it to them in May and I then called Kate about 1 week later and talked to her a bit about everything. We then received our referral on July 17th!!!! When we received our referral Beth said she remembered talking to me and she thought that our daughter would be a great fit in our family.
