S.L.O.W.L.Y but surely...
Patience may be a virtue but it certainly isn't one of mine. The latest official "done" date of our homestudy is the 4th. The homestudy agency got it sent down to the international agency who made a few changes and sent it back immediately. Now the homestudy agency is retyping it and collecting all the necessary paperwork that is to accompany it and they say they'll have it ready for pick on Wednesday. Wednesday after 1. After 1?? I'll keep my fingers crossed. The entire dossier is waiting to be submitted as is our application to US immigration which can take a few weeks to process. I will be one giddy gal when this whole homestudy is done and we can put this agency on the back burner for a few months til we get our gal home.
So our plan of having our dossier complete by the end of the year didn't happen. We'll do our best to take it in stride and not be downhearted by things we can not control. I joke that being pregnant while adopting actually works because it keeps you from going too nutso about one or the other. God willing we'll get our dossier completed this month and we can turn all eyes to the belly prize for next month while we wait to hear when we'll get to travel. Sounds like a pretty good plan to me!
To my sweet little lady patiently waiting for something more- know that we're are doing our best and that we wish everyday we could just grab a flight and to be closer to you. Whatever it takes little lady, we'll get there and we'll count the minutes until then. We love you!!!!
