Busy but waiting

I keep meaning to post but get distracted by other things. Before I realize it, the day is gone and I missed another post!

This week has been all about emailing our social worker, dossier specialist, and Taiwan coordinator, making sure we're all on the same page and that the right forms are getting filled out. Last Friday, we filled out our new financial forms to reflect the adoption grant. We emailed the notarized form to our social worker, who is working on updating our home study and getting new copies mailed out to us. Once we receive the new home study, we'll be forwarding one copy to the Taiwan coordinator, who will be forwarding it to the social worker in Taiwan. They have to re-evaluate us in light of the new financial situation before we can get approval and contracts from them.

I'm tired just thinking about it.

I've been following a couple families who are currently adopting from Taiwan or finalized their adoptions in 2013. The average wait between dossier submission and travel is 7-10 months. We aren't even ready to submit our dossier. I'm reminding myself that God has everything under control and that it will happen on His timing, not ours! In the meantime, I will keep knitting, quilting, learning Chinese, and taking care of my husband and our household. There is plenty to do in order to stay busy!

God's timing is perfect, and your daughter will be with you soon. I pray the waiting goes by very quickly!
