behind the scenes

Monday, February 26, 2007

I haven't posted anything lately...not because there's nothing going on...just because there's nothing new.
After the whirlwind last Tuesday the adoption process came to a complete stop. We were waiting for our agency to get in touch with our home study provider - to give her the list of criteria that needs to be included in the homestudy - when the woman who runs the agency had a death in the family. Thankfully she's back in the office now and trying to get in touch with our provider...however the number we had given her was incorrect! :) It feels like we're just spinning our wheels and S is getting pretty frustrated. He spends all of his day off every Tuesday working on this and unfortunately he's finding out what I and all international adoptive parents already knew. It's a long, drawn-out, incredibly frustrating process that will not speed up no matter what you do!
On the bright side, I told my parents about our pending adoption yesterday and they were happy for us, and it sounds like they are willing to come and stay with the kids while we're in Ukraine. What a blessing! The only problem is that my mom hasn't retired yet...although she wants to so badly...so it may not work out as smoothly as we hope. We'll just have to wait and see. Unfortunately, S's parents are not an option right now, so we're going to have to rely on family or close friends. I wish we could take them with us...but I figure there's no way we can get to Ukraine before school starts in the fall...and we can't take them out of school for that long.
