One year ago, we decided to adopt. We began researching agencies, home study agencies, social workers, and countries. We quickly narrowed or field down to a few countries that had programs we were eligible for, and began working through agencies that had those programs. It was September before we finally chose Kyrgyzstan, and also our agency. I remember the info given to us when we began the paper chase.... we were delirious thinking we could have our daughter home in a year.
And here we are a year later, sitting on a complete dossier for Kyrgyzstan that is no good anymore, but now in a different program, and still no girl. I cannot believe its been a whole year since we decided to expand our family through adoption. It seems like yesterday, yet it feels like forever ago.
We still Pray constantly for our girl, that wherever she is, she is safe, healthy, and well cared for. I also pray for us... that we can remain patient and calm, and that we will soon see our girls face.
