Contact from International Agency

I just opened an email from the international agency located in Oregon. The title was quarterly contact so at least I will hear something every few months now. The gist of the email is that they are currently referring families who had a HS go to Korea in Nov and Dec. She did not specify year so I am hoping that means of 2008. I did email her for clarification as to the year. That might be silly of me, but since it took us so long to get the HS approved I am a little off on calculating the timeline.

She also said that some of the families getting referred had the HS sent even later, but those are families which would accept special needs. That is an excellent sign for us as we said there were certain special needs we would be willing to accept.

It was nice to hear from someone. I feel like I am in a weird waste land. Having to tell people over and over that I haven't heard anything, that we are just waiting, is getting old very fast.

I know it's been awhile

I haven't posted in some time, but there isn't really much to say. Frig and I did receive a letter from the international agency which got me super excited...until I opened it. It was sent to inform us that Korea is raising their prices and that of course that will raise our costs. Oh well what can we do.

So in the mean time we are just waiting. Frig and I are working on pulling up all of the carpet in the back of the house. The wood floor underneath has some condition issues, but I think the wood is healthier for a baby. We will take care of the condition once the baby is old enough as to not cause even more issues (so in like 20 years or so).

The waiting is pretty hard for me. I think it is compounded by the 5 year anniversary we just celebrated.
