Yes...I have a confession. I have paperwork anxiety. We found out last month that we had to renew our homestudy and clearances because it's been almost a year since we were first approved....darn lengthy process! (smile...okay...maybe I'm not smiling)
I've had the update paperwork that our adoption agency, America World, sent to us but I haven't been able to budge yet. Yeah...I've been extremely busy at home and work but I was busy when I went through this paperwork pile last year. I was fired up and ready to take on the challenge. The difference now is that I remember how difficult....I almost want to say horrible....the process was with our medical records and clearances. We have an HMO plan and our providers go through a particular process. Every single piece of it was tedious and sometimes the 'system' doesn't work as simple as I'd like. We had to mesh our agency's process with our provider's process and both are pretty particular. So.....here we are...having to do this all over again--YET.....when I think about my daughter, it gives me just a 'little' push to beginning tackle this tomorrow. Pray for us, our medical clearances, security clearances, that I don't get cold feet, and that things won't be as bad as I remember last time.
Happy 4th of July! Hopefully, this is the last one we'll spend watching the fireworks as a family of 4.
Celebrate! Treatment for Shadrack is a GO!
