Hi Ho, it’s off to Kyrg we go!

So, emboldened by my agency’s director that he has consulted with the embassy in Washington that adoptions are not being halted or delayed, today I sent off my dossier. The cool part is that a family who are adopting from Kyrgyzstan through our agency is going to hand carry our dossier over there and deliver it personally to the adoptions people. How great is that?! I ran around like a mad woman yesterday getting the doctor’s letters for my husband and me as well as our daughter. I filled out our visa applications, and along with the good conduct letters from the sheriff, sent it all on its merry way. What an awesome feeling. Now comes the real waiting. Our work here is done.

If I start thinking about a child being in an orphanage without a mama and daddy and a safe home, and us ready for a child to come to our waiting arms, I start to get mopey and sad and frustrated and impatient. I would do anything to be able to start sending her pictures of us and something soft to hold until we get there.

Do not fret Isabel, we are coming. We will not give up.
