The Wait

Link to donate through YouCaring Quick update: Our dossier has been in Guinea for several weeks now and it’s unclear as to if it’s being reviewed or not at this moment. Some political rioting at the capitol has kept government officials from going into work, which means papers are left untouched for stretches of time….

Update: Dossier Completed!

-Important Link to come back to for YouCaring.com- At this point, adoption has infiltrated every last crevice of our lives. So much so, that people no longer ask us how we are doing when they see us, it’s “Hey You, how’s the adoption?” Which is fine. Really. But it opens a door that they probably…

Update: Fingerprinting Take 3

Disclaimer: Though this is an exciting update, it’s not the exciting update we’re all waiting for. One of the pieces of this puzzle that is known for being fickle is the application to USCIS (they do all the immigration stuff).

Change is in the Air

Okay, so it’s been ages since an actual adoption update. I know because my go to people for asking questions have stopped asking. There’s just nothing you can do while your country is trying to figure things out and has pushed pause. In the mean time, we had a lot of time to pray, to…

Giving Back

Each process is different and I’m already convinced that everyone feels the same once their kid is home. We’re just starting, but I swear it has to be some convoluted combination of sheer joy and slight “need a vacation” from the emotional roller-coaster that was your life for way too long. We too are fundraising fools…
