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.

Wonderful, wonderful news!!! So glad they found your paperwork. Hope this is a sign for things to come.
Best wishes to your little one (and you) on getting his tonsils out. You better stock up on ice cream.

By the way, I never introduced myself, but I've been following your adoption. I hope you don't mind; I found you via Rachel's blog. My husband and I are in the process of adopting our 3 from Russia too.

Hoping we all get some great news in the upcoming weeks.

I am so happy for you guys! I can't imagine what this has been like for you. You have been in our thoughts and prayers!

I know how excited you must have been to receive the call that your documents were found. I hated knowing mine were being mailed in the thought they might be lost and we'd have to start over again.

Best wishes for Monkey's surgery. I hope it goes well.

Many Blessings

Phew! I'm SO glad they found the paperwork! What a relief. Good luck with Monkey's surgery. A good excuse to eat lots of popscicles. :-) Yummm...

I am SO happy to hear they found the paperwork!!

Poor little Monkey. I had my tonsils and adenoids out in Kindergarten, and I thought it was fun eating all of the yummy popsicles so it will probably be harder on you than on him!

I know you must be so ready for Astrakhan to be back in business. You are still in our prayers.

Allison-have you all heard anything from Astrakhan? Has anyone got referrals from there recently? Since summer is over, I hope things start moving for everyone!

I LOVE YOU said...
