the scoop

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

So, I know that I have been pretty silent in regards to news with R.'s adoption over the past couple of weeks.
Didn't I say that we'd definitely know something at the beginning of October...?
mmmm...yep, I did.

And, the question is, do we know anything?

Well, yesterday I had a really helpful and informative converstation with our agency representative. I'm understanding what's happening in Ind*a a little bit better, and honestly, just knowing something is encouraging! So, here it is...all that I know!

-Ind*a is not accepting dossiers or matching paperwork for non-special needs adoptions until January 1st.
-It's possible that they will accept paperwork for special needs adoptions.
-R.'s adoption is a special needs adoption!
-We filled out a Parent Registration Form that will be sent directly to CARA (rather than to the state where R. lives), hopefully by next week.
-We might hear something about this within a couple of weeks of it being sent (okay, I know that I've said this before, but I'm sayin' it again, and clinging to faith that it will happen). 
-Our agency representative is traveling to India (and R.'s home state) in January.
-This adoption will affect more than just one little girl. There's a lot going on in Ind*a, and especially R.'s state, right now. Please pray.
-God is so very, very good. I like Him a lot!!!

So, that's the scoop.
It's pretty much all I know,
and that's enough
for now.

I pray that you guys hear more soon. I'm glad the agency rep is going to Ind*a soon...that sounds like it would maybe help speed things up! Hugs and prayers!

I have been wondering myself what the 'scoop' is! I am sorry that there is more waiting for you Sarah but at least there is some understanding like you said. Let's pray that they show the SN adoptions favour and that the Lord brings news for your family in the next couple of weeks. His time is right but how our flesh cries out and wants the time to be now!

I am hopeful for you that you will hear a definite answer soon.

love Naomi

So excited to know more news. :) Yay!

Difference2This1 said... sorry things are going so slow :( I remember when I read this post...long ago when we were going through a training class at an international adoption clinic before Raegan came home, that it takes extra endurance to adopt from India. I wish it wasn't so this many years later. Prayers for continued endurance through this.. Blessings, Jennifer
