I really have no reason that I have been a bit quieter about this adoption than the last. I suppose it's because I know it could still be awhile. I also vividly remember how, with Tariku's adoption, Zach would sometimes come home and say things like, "Do you have to tell them (the blog readers) everything?"
Well yes, clearly I did. :)
So it's a little different this time. But not much, because I do so enjoy (over)sharing. And honestly, sometimes this kind of stuff is easier with people like you.
This adoption...fun stuff, really. We're "getting there" in the process. We had our first homestudy Wednesday. I have the entire dossier done and ready. It sounds like we'll be able to complete our homestudy if not next week then the week after. So hopefully in two weeks we'll be officially waiting.
As of right now we are open to 2 kids ages 5 and under. We've thought/prayed long and hard about it, and we're pretty excited about the whole deal.
Our agency, we're really happy with them. They are very good about answering any questions. Their top priority is very obviously the children. They have been on the international adoption "scene" since the beginning of time, which gives us a lot of comfort. I don't necessarily want to get into it here, but if you have specific questions about the agency please email!
Thanks for asking about it, for supporting it, for actually wanting me to talk about it incessantly (you did say that, right?) :)
More to come!
