Just Waiting

There is not any new news to report. We are waiting for our documents to be submitted to the SDA. That could happen in the next few weeks..... it could happen in the next few months. After that, the SDA is supposed to get back to us within twenty working days with our appointment to be officially referred a child. That happens only if they accept our paperwork and don't ask us to redo any of it. When they finally give us our travel date it might be for two months out or it could be with less than three weeks notice like we were given with our last adoption. We just don't know---- and so we go with the flow....... and pray.

With our last adoption in 2008, we submitted our documents on May 19th and got word of our SDA appointment on June 3rd. Our actual appointment was on June 24th.

Wouldn't it be really cool if we got to travel right around the same time if not the same time?
That would make it a whole year since we have seen Alexsey.

I bet he is taller. Maybe he is walking. Most certainly he is cuter. And the best part is that I won't have to keep my distance with him stealing cute little flirtatious moments with him here and there. This time I will actually get to hold and squeeze that precious little boy!

I remember when the description of him described how he and "one of our adopting families" would steal little smiles, etc. It was so sweet - and now you are going back to get him!! :o)

He's been yours all along. :o)

Christine, I just saw that you are adopting again. WOW! I am totally amazed at the love your family has! You are truly a wonderful woman who certainly has been blessed beyond words. I am so glad to "know" you and follow your journey. Simply fantastic!

It must be so hard to wait, but praying does help! I enjoy reading your updates...I can't wait until you can go get that sweet little boy!

Yes, now you will be able to hold him and give him lots of hugs and kisses. And you will not have to ever leave him behind again. I can't wait for you to go. I am also in the waiting game, but I am nervous because we just aren't ready yet. But, God will prepare us when it's time to go. Sometimes I feel I am going to hyperventilate I am so overwhelmed with the nervousness. I have to remind myself to just breathe and rest in Him.

I still hope we are in Ukraine at the same time. I think it would be wonderful to cross paths. :)
