So, it's been a little while since I've posted here. Okay, it's been almost 6 months. What have we been up to you ask? Let me tell you...
We have completed our home study, filed our I600a, and sent our dossier to Congo. What does that all mean? Basically, we've been doing paperwork. Lots and lots of paperwork.
Oh yeah, one other thing...WE ACCEPTED A REFERRAL OF 3 YEAR OLD TWINS! They are sisters and are about 4 1/2 months older than Reagan. They are healthy and adorable and we can't wait for them to come home. "We" (our Congo lawyer) will be in court starting next week to legally adopt them! Court can take a few months, and after that we have to wait 30 days for anyone to appeal the decision, but then they will legally be our daughters.
So after that happens we'll just hop on a plane and go pick them up :) If only it were that easy.
After they are legally our daughters we have to wait on paperwork, and file some more paperwork, then wait on government people to do government things, then wait some more, but eventually in the "near" future we will be able to go get them (then wait in Congo for more paperwork) and then come home where we will have to readopt them.
Got it? Does that all make sense?
I didn't think so.
