We heard back from the DHHS last week & have a stack of papers to fill in, reports to obtain, & other things. Normally I think we'd be overwhelmed with the amount of information they want, but honestly when you've been through the INS process in two countries, traveled overseas, & had to obtain citizenship in another country for your children it all becomes a bit of a, "been there done that.." kinda thing. I'm not going to say it'll be enjoyable to do all the things required in this packet or that they'll be a cinch, but we don't feel stressed about it.
There's a long back story to our choice to adopt, a six year back story actually. We'll share it eventually. For now though, we've got a stack of papers to fill out, children to pray for, & the everyday things that add up to life. In the mean time, we welcome prayers as we travel this road.
