This past week we finished up all of our homestudy paperwork. Now it is being updated and could be done as early as next week! This is awesome news for us since that means our immigration paperwork can begin. The rest of the paperwork that we need for our dossier is fairly simple.
Other than that, I do not have much to report--- however much excitement is going on for Haitian adoptive parents who after many years of being in the process are finally being united with their new children! I am so excited for Kathy, her children, and all the others who have endured delay after delay. Praise the Lord that there will be many less orphans tonight!
Recently the comment was made about us adopting from Haiti. This is something that we wish we could at least consider but due to family size restrictions we do not qualify. The same with many other countries. Door closed. Period.
Large family friendly countries to adopt from include Ukraine, Russia, and Bulgaria. Are there any others?
Also, someone was wondering why we decided on Ukraine again. Frankly, I have fallen in love with the country-- and everything about it. I think of it as a little Russia that is more friendly, affordable, and inviting. Plus the dossier is much easier, you don't need visas, and the cost of adopting from Ukraine is almost half that of Russia. To put it simply... my heart is in Ukraine.
Happy 13th Birthday, Adelise!
