I have been way too exhausted to post lately and since I hadn't shared my blog address until now there was no point anyway. Good news though, we will probably have our dossier submitted in Ukraine in two weeks. It is looking like it will be submitted on the 29 which will be a nice birthday present to me. :) (My birthday is the 30th.) There are so many things that will need to continue to go right there between now and then, and that will be a small miracle.
If all goes well we are looking at traveling over there about March next year though. From there we will be able to go meet the children we are referred to once there and see if they are a good fit for our family. That is a dramatically simplified version of what will happen, but that is it in a nutshell. We will probably have to stay there for at least a month to get through the legal process but we should be bringing the kids home with us next spring! For those who don't know, we are hoping to adopt 2 kids (biological siblings) from Ukraine. We are approved for up to 3 kids, either sex, ages 6 and under. We have kept our options open because you just never know. We could come home with a 2 year old boy and a 6 year old girl, a 5 year old boy, little ones, older ones, 1, 2,or 3. We do not know. We are thinking 2, but we will see. :)
I will try to keep this blog up to date with our progress, but student-teaching is so tiring that I can't make any promises. Feel free to ask questions and leave comments. I think I have it set so that you can leave comments without signing in, but at least sign your name. Also, remember that since a blog is on the web we would prefer to keep our last name and specific location off the blog, for privacy reasons. Hope to hear from you soon!
