That’s the big question.
At least, that’s the big question at this house.
And right now, we really have no idea.
As y’all probably know, this adoption has been, *ahem*… a bit unconventional.
We started out sanely enough (“sane” being a relative term) in April of 2010. Determined to finish our dossier before ‘finding’ our child, we were LID on September 16th.
Just a few days later, when the next shared list was released, we were matched with our precious Poppy.
And the wait to travel began. We received LOA in late November and expected to travel in early spring.
But then came Esther. And everything changed.
One *big* thing that changed was our agency. We needed to switch to the agency that had Esther’s file if wanted to bring her home.
And so we did. But in so doing, that meant that everything with Poppy was put on hold.
Which, until recently, was to be expected. To bring Esther home quickly (which she needed so badly because of her fragile heart) we had to wait on her paperwork to catch up to Poppy’s.
Then, on April 29th we received Esther’s and Poppy’s LOAs. Back on track, right?
Esther’s passing left us broken and reeling. It took me several weeks to even begin thinking clearly. But as soon as that happened, I had one thing on the brain: Poppy.
So it began. Calling, emailing, waiting. Kinks to smooth out with our beloved USC1S. And days? Turned into weeks.
We are still awaiting word to see exactly where we are in the process for Poppy – we could be weeks away from travel or months away from travel. But you can bet everyone at this house is praying hard for much sooner than later.
We just want to get our girl home. It’s oh so hard to watch them growing up right before your eyes.
If y’all would pray with us for Poppy, we would be so grateful.
