We were told that she was 7 years old and her mother had relinquished her. This was good because Sarah was 9 at the time and we did not want to twin her with a new child. We had completed all our paperwork and now we got to wait and wait and wait. During the process adoptions stopped in Guatemala and started back up. It seemed like forever to us but when I see how long some other countries are I realize that it wasn't that long. We sent down packages and talked with her on the phone.
Finally, on Sept 2003 we got the call that we could go and pick up Joselin. We took the kids and travelled to Guatemala City to the hogar that Joselin was staying in. I can't begin to describe the feelings you have when you have been anticipating the day you get to hug your child.
