Yesterday I got a text from my caseworker who is also adopting from the same orphanage where Sweet M. is. If you remember, I told the story of how M. managed to get herself into the referral picture. Well, yesterday H. (my caseworker) received her NOC!!! This is a HUGE step in the adoption process. It means that VERY soon she will be making her short 3 day trip to appear in court. She will also take lots of pictures of M. since M. and her daughter are friends!! I am super excited for her because she has waited a looonnnngggg time and now things are FINALLY moving! I am also excited to get NEW pics of Sweet M. and to hear about her personality, interacting with H.'s daughter! We are hoping that M.'s CSR comes in shortly so that I can accept the "formal" referral! I've been praying that Ind*a sticks to the schedule that they proposed in the new guidelines they implemented. It will be very interesting to watch H.'s case from this point on to see if in fact they do follow it. Since her daughter and M. are both considered special needs for being older, they are supposed to expedite their cases. The next few months should be very telling! If you would, please pray that H. gets her court date SOON!!
Thank you for ALL your love and support! Have a great weekend!
