Upsetting News

I received news today from our HS agency that the sate of Texas has done NOTHING with Frig's paperwork since it reached their office back in February. Apparently the women that is supposed to process it has been in training and the paperwork has been sitting on her desk this whole time.

Unfortunately, that is not the worst part. Even worse than the current paper work having been at a stand still these past two months is that we only found out because they want more paperwork from us: a record of work history from the past 10 years, two letters of recommendation standing up from Frig's moral character, and a more detailed explaination of the events from Frig (including what he learned and what he would do different in the same situation today).

This is so disheartening! I kind of just want to give up. I imagine all of the things I could do to my house with the money we have saved.


  1. Im so sorry. I would just keep on working at it. Im sure you have filled out so much paperwork and just want to relax, but it will be worth it in the end..

  2. Rachel -

    Oh how I have been in your boat! Being turned down by the agency was a huge set back for us. your news is no where as bad as the news we received. Keep pushing at it. I just wish someone out there in politics would realize how hard it is too adopt all the children that need to be adopted. hang in there! Big Hugs!

  3. I know this must be so frustrating for you and Frig. I'm sorry, Rachel. Don't give up. Just keep thinking about the end result and how happy you will be. Big hugs from me, too.

  4. Thanks for all of the words of encouragement ladies. Right now we are really having to focus on trying to get Frig a job for next year. Hopefully the resume will be done by the end of the weekend and then the focus will be this stuff. I feel like it is never ending and I will never get to just BE!

  5. I'm sorry, Rachel. Huge hugs to you. I just know everything will end up working out perfectly in the end - I just wish the process wasn't so trying. You are always in my thoughts~
