The week ahead
Tuesday, July 31, 2007
We'll be spending the next several days taking care of updating the dossier. As Stef said she got her corrected passport yesterday. And this morning our homestudy agency got my criminal background clearance from the fingerprints I got redone yesterday. And yes, shocking but true, they were clear.

The good news keeps pouring in. Although I'm like 99.99999% sure at some point here there is going to be another bump or hurdle that we will need to overcome. And that's fine. For those who may be just starting out in the process, you must remember that this is not an easy thing and that there will be sometimes a few, sometimes many roadblocks in your way. A good friend who adopted last year just sent me an email today that had this...

"I told myself that A. (still in orphanage at the time) had no idea what her parents-to-be are willing to do for her which didn't matter to us, whatever the price, the risk, the uncertainty, we just do it and make it happen. It's like we are compelled and determined because we know our child is waiting for us. We'll bend over backwards for our child, move mountains, whatever it takes so we can bring them home."

I think anyone who has been a part of the adoption process can relate. This is exactly what we do and how we feel. And when things are a little bumpy just persevere and work towards your goal.

    Absolutely...I did that with A, and I'll do it again with Bubba. Btw, I love the web cam, like a window to where you'll be. You'll have to wave in front of it for us all when you are there!
