Thank you so, so much for all of your encouraging words. It really helps to have so much support from all of you. I know Stu appreciates it too since he gets a break from constantly reassuring me that this adoption will in fact happen.
Anyway, our homestudy agency did find our big envelope of documents. There is a new girl working at the desk and I guess she didn't realize that this is our third adoption homestudy and put the envelope in one of our old files. So crisis averted...for now.
It's actually amazing how much this tiny bit of good news cheered me up. I think maybe, just maybe, I can see a little sunshine in the distance. And it feels great that another round of paperwork is out of the way.
Now it's just time to wait again. We're hoping to hear some updated news out of our region in the next few weeks. In the meantime, I'll have my hands full because our little Monkey is getting his tonsils/adenoids removed next Tuesday. He's been needing this for awhile; it may be a few rough weeks, but I think he'll feel so much better after this.
So again, thank you so much for all of your encouragement.
