Last Thursday when I was feeling despondent that another week had passed and we had not been submitted to Justin’s country, I was told that his paperwork was all taken care of and given the “head start” it needed, so we would be submitted the next Thursday.
That day is today! Our dossier arrived on July 2 and now on August 2, we are finally moving forward in this process!
Today, Justin’s country learns that we would like to adopt him. That we value him despite his Down’s Syndrome and his congenital heart defect. That we want him to be a part of our family.
We can hope to travel in about 2 months and the entire adoption should be complete within 2 months after that. Should make for a great Thanksgiving…
