Yesterday I was restless. I was feeling that perhaps adoption through foster care just was not going to happen. I started thinking international again. I was even interested in one specific girl on Reeces Rainbow. I was contemplating how to raise the funds since I don't have $25-30,000 sitting around for an adoption.
As I was reading through some blogs written by families doing adoptions in the Ukraine region I came across the previous posted video. It brought me back to my original plan to keep it local.
I need to learn to be patient but it is so hard. It is even harder when I see those videos and I realize that there is a child out there for us. Not only are we waiting for the system to work, but more importantly there is a child out there waiting for a family.
Our homestudy has been sent up to the supervisor for approval.
I have been told to look at photolistings, even to go out of state if I need to.
So, I did a lot of searching last night. I even put in more inquiries. That always makes my poor husband nervous. He imagines all these kids being dropped off at our door. Considering I only get a response 10% of the time and every response has been for a child who does not match our family, I don't think he has too much to be worried about. Hopefully I won't get us into too much trouble. Although that huge sibling group I put in an inquiry in would require us to purchase a 15 passenger van......
Have a great night!
