Waiting on the Ministry
Today our home study was sent to the Ministry for approval. Honestly, I didn't think it was ever going to happen; first that the home study would be completed and then that it would be mailed for approval but miracles happen and it was done today. So, now we wait to see how that goes. I've not heard of too many people being rejected but I suppose it could happen and I'd have to be prepared for that. Would it be over for us then? I suppose there are appeals that could be done but I won't think about it now. I rejoice that this huge part of adoption is complete. Next is the dossier, another huge step, lot's of paperwork and even more patience is involved. I have most of it together already but documents need to be certified and passport photos taken. I mean, we have passports but the photos for China's files. I have to remember to smile. In the meantime, life goes on. We're in middle of colds right now. It's that time of year I have to pull out the winter coats and have them ready because here we usually go from summer right to winter, not much of in between. Today got pretty cold and snow flurries are called for. I can't wait for Halloween with my grandson; it should be fun and for that child that waits I hope one day she will have some Halloween fun too.
