Dearest Little Ones,
I’m happy to report that there has actually been some progress in bringing you home! Your dad and I are 2 days away from being down with the training classes required by the State. It’s been a long week, packed full of discussions, work, and listening. I’m still making sure to take care of myself during this process for the most part. I did miss a work out yesterday, but I know that things don’t always go according to plan.
We’ve decided a few things that have helped us narrow down the search for you. We think you’re in the USA, so that gives us a little less of the world to search for now. We’re not sure what you look like yet, or if you’ll come to us as you are or with brothers and sisters, but hopefully we’ll have an even more clear path to you after this weekend, when we decide on an agency and start the Homestudy.
Going through the State required classes have been an interesting journey for me. It’s really been bringing back what it was like to grow up myself. So many things ring true, even though I was adopted as an infant. It’s been very helpful to reassure me that we’re going to be a good fit, even if we have to work at it for a while.
Hopefully I’ll meet you as early as next year.
After all, we’re family; You just don’t know it yet.
