We mailed our completed dossier and it should arrive tomorrow morning! I spoke with our caseworker today, and unfortunately AGCI only reviews dossiers once a week, so we have to wait until the next time to know if and what documents need to be redone. Wait, wait and more waiting. Story of our lives! It’s been a pretty tedious process. For instance, we already had to redo our medical forms because our name and address were handwritten instead of typed. Not to mention my poor sister-in-law has had to redo her reference letter like 3 times now (sorry Tanna!!). So we’ll see what they say. I just want to be on the wait list so badly. I know we’ve already accomplished so much since February, but I guess I just need to see those numbers!
Despite the fact that the paperwork is picky and exhausting at times, adoption is such a beautiful thing! I’ve truly loved every moment of it. I have never once regretted our decision. For the first time in a long time, I feel like Jonathan and I are right where we need to be. I have seen God’s hand at work during the entire process. I’ve witnessed His faithfulness time and time again.I can see Him transforming our hearts and way of thinking and preparing us for what’s to come. The moment we surrendered and released all control, everything just started falling into place and hope was restored. I already love our little one so much, and the sweetest part is that I know I’m not the only one!
You revive me Lord, and all my deserts are rivers of joy!
