So 2 weeks ago on Thursday, I mentioned some BIG NEWS on the adoption front. Well, it fell through. We were gonna get an angel or two from Haiti. With what happened with the Baptists in Haiti, the adoptions there has been put on hold for at least 2 years.
Then exactly 2 weeks to the day from that news, we got news about another Haitian adoption opportunity. That fell through too. It just seemed like too much of a coincidence that both Haitian opportunities occurred within 2 weeks of each other on a Thursday- ya know?
Well with the first news, it seemed like FOR SURE it was gonna happen. We were FINALLY going to be parents. It was quite a let down, but a blessing as well.
Ok, if you have been a faithful reader, then you know that for the better part of a year and a half+ we have been on again off again with the adoption process. Well we are FINALLY, TRULY beginning a domestic adoption!!! We were so excited to be parents to the Haitian angels that PK said we were gonna adopt NOW! :)
On Wednesday we began the paperwork, and I immediately became discouraged. THIS IS GONNA TAKE FOREVER! Then yesterday I got a calendar from the agency that took that discouragement away! Before our home studies, etc, we have to take classes, 11 classes. Yeah, can you see why I was discouraged? Well, the calendar showed me that we could get all 11 classes done in March, and we could begin the rest of the process in April. That is what I am talking about!!! :)
The ticker on the left showed how long we have been waiting to begin the process. The new one on the right shows how long we will be waiting to have our baby come home with us. 3 days and counting- Lord willing, it will only get up to about a few months. ;) Though, I probably will still make a new one when we know FOR SURE when our baby(ies) will come home. :)
Right now I am sitting in the play room making a "Have fun baby making" gift for my friend who is TTC soon, and I am watching "Meet the Robinsons," dreaming about when our angel(s) will come home. :)
Please join us in prayer! Not much longer and Jersey will no longer be an only child ♥
