Not So Newsie
March 7, 2013 § 1 Comment
Hey friends & fam! I know you are hesitant to once again ask “is there any news…?” but don’t stop asking–we don’t mind–because one day we are going to be able to say “YES”!
But as of today, despite ripping our cloths and pulling out our hair (or the modern day equivalent to lamenting) in efforts to get our prayers answered, we still have no more news than before. Sorry guys!
We are waiting on our request with the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to be approved for what is called Part I (which is overdue) and then we will have to put in for Part II which I’ve heard down the adoption grape vine is currently taking circa 2 weeks. That’s great news!
We can readily relate to the “stuck” ness of “never-ending bureaucracy that adoptive families are forced to deal with” mentioned in this new documentary:
This is where, as an adoptive parent, you no longer long for the weekends because you are on constant watch for that very important piece of mail to arrive.
So we’ve been tying up the odds & ends on our home reno, working on setting up little Z’s bedroom, trying to learn Lingala (www.memrise.com) and on the advice of an adoptive mommy of a toddler I’ve been making these Gluten Free Freezer Meals for when we get home.
Us gumshoes are closing in on the trail…pray with us that we get “unstuck” & certainly keep asking us for some Hooz News!
