She got a call from the adoption agency.
"How many were you looking to adopt?"
Brittany replied, "We're looking at up to three."
"You're not going to believe this..."
Turns out that a sibling group of three just became available. They are a little older than we have been thinking, but if these are our kids, then great! What's more: There are two girls and a boy. And they look "very Russian". In a country that is 80% Asian, the 3-5 year-old girl has blue eyes.
We're supposed to get pictures tomorrow.
Thrilled and Terrified
And I was supposed to work after that.
What's crazy is that we are getting a referral, of sorts, and we haven't even completed the paperwork for the US yet. So there are still a ton of things that need to come together. I need to get hired at a company that will give me health insurance (have to have that before we can move forward), we need to complete the Dossier, and then we're really moving.
Over the past two weeks, I've been really stressed out, frustrated, and even a little depressed because I've been stuck at health insurance. We were flying through the process right into a brick wall.
So yesterday I felt like I couldn't do anything, like I was completely stuck until the health insurance worked out.
Today proved that wrong. I could do something. I could get excited.
