Saturday Morning Post

I’ve typically posted to this blog on Saturday mornings, though my consistency has recently been lax. Saturday morning tends to be my first chance of the week to sit, relax, and have a mellow cup of coffee. No rushing around as I get ready for school. No 5:30 a.m. walk of our dog, Kineo (Saturday is Doug’s day.). No panicked thoughts that run through the lists last minute preparations for the day’s science lesson or lab. Just me, my computer, and my coffee. Ahhhhh!

This past Thursday was especially stressful as a lively day with the my students (it is hard to keep them focused and contained this time of year) was followed by a meeting at our adoption agency. Our coordinator emailed to say that we needed to update some of our adoption paperwork and was wondering if she should send us the information and forms or if I wanted to come it and go over what was required. Being the “hands on” person that I am, I decided to go in and meet.

Thankfully, I received this information in person rather than getting it as a package in the mail. We need to redo and renew almost every piece of paperwork that was originally done for our Kazakhstan adoption. Needless to say, I was upset! The part that really stings about this fact is that we thought that by this point in time we would have already traveled to Kazakhstan and the renewing of documents would be a chase of the past. Unfortunately, this is not the case! We need to redo our documents and we need to do them now.https://i0.wp.com/www.davidsuzuki.org/files/NC/newsletter/paper_stack.jpg

This will be my third document collection for the adoption of a child. The first was done in 2006 for our China adoption, the second was last summer for our switch to Kazakhstan, and now, our third: the renewal of all of our paperwork so that we will be updated for our hopeful trip to this country this summer. Well, not all documents need to be updated. Only twenty eight of the required amount.

    HEY THERE–I can relate to you! We are also redoing our dossier. It was this time last summer when we gatthered them all, and now that i don’t know WHEN we are going (I am thinking fall?) our homestudy will also need to be redone.

    ugh! But, you know what, it’s a pain, but once you get started, it’s not hard. It’s a pain, sure, but once you get over being annoyed and disappoited, it’s not that bad.

    Have you had a moment to read Tricia and Chris’ blog? They met their son this week-he is precious . It will be worth the wait, and the redoing of paperwork.

    We’ll get there, we’ll get there!!

    It is true. It is a royal pain. But something else that is true is that when you meet your child you will be oh so glad that this delay happened otherwise you would not have met that particular child. And let me tell you after you meet your child – literally the week you meet them – all the annoyances and frustrations of the paperchse melt away like ice cream on a hot day. They all just disappear. And you realize it was all worth it. Keep your chin up the person who doesn’t leave the path, at some point, gets to the end of it.
