Hello Paperwork, Nice to Meet You!

Wow.  That is the one word I can think of to describe the mountain of paperwork I am looking at right now. Gotta admit, I've been procrastinating a bit.  It's a little overwhelming!  Alas, during this Christmas break, I shall be conquering the mountain of Home Study and Dossier paperwork.  If you don't hear from me for a while, there may have been an avalanche.

Honestly though, I am genuinely looking forward to tackling this task.  Simply because I know the faster we get through this, the faster we get on that list to receive our match!  A friend of mine commented on how adoption is like the longest pregnancy ever, and it seriously feels that way!  We could probably have three babies by the time we bring Ezra home!  But she is worth it.  There is such a love in our hearts for this small girl.  My arms ache to hold her, my eyes long to see her, and my ears can't wait to hear her tiny voice and laugh.  She is so precious to us already.  I can only imagine the love that is going to explode in our hearts when we see her picture and again when we get to hold her in person!  So you see, all of this paperwork may be a bit daunting, but it is the gateway to our very own "gotcha day".  We will gladly dive into the paperwork, go to the appointments, answer all of the questions, because it is all for the love of one small girl.

Time to climb that mountain!!

  2. Having 3 babies before Ezra comes home does not sound like such a bad idea. I bet Ezra would love that ;-)

  3. Stacey, you don't even know how much of an encouragement it is to know that you guys made it through all of the paperwork! Okay, a little each day. I can do this!
