So Far

So far so good with the adoption process. We got the last of our Stateside documents in the mail last week. Thank you for your prayers! Now the rest of the paper work will be done in Bolivia. Some of it has to take place in the capital city of La Paz and some of it here in Cochabamba. You can be praying for swiftness and favor as we keep on doing paper work. You can also pray that I have a patient and gracious attitude as well.

At times I wish that I could pay someone else to go do the tedious work of standing in line, making the calls, getting the information and meeting with officials. Then I remind myself that if I were carrying this child in my body there would be tedious moments of stretch marks, swollen ankles, a huge belly and hormonal mood swings. So while I wait for the moment that I will hold my daughter in my arms I will continue.

Our lawyer told us this week that we are considered nationals because we have permanent residence visas. This means we have preference over the international adoptive parents in other countries. This also means that our adoption should go faster. This is good news.
