No major updates this week. As expected we haven't heard anything about the adoption. All we know is that our paperwork is at the government office in Rwanda and someday someone will look at it and hopefully approve us to adopt from there :)
You'll notice from our time ticker that we officially passed the three month mark in our process. We officially began this journey at the end of August, but all of our paperwork was done and off to the US's Rwandan embassy for approval in January, (which is why we say we have been officially on the waitlist since then). The last three months has gone quickly in some regards, and has seemed like forever in others. I remember having similar emotions when I was pregnant with my oldest. Thinking... "I'm I ever going to get to meet this child", and at the same time "Wow I can't believe I've already been pregnant for 8 months."
Like pregnancy there is a lot of anxiety, anticipation, and emotions and we just have to roll with it all. Unlike pregnancy this process will take longer, we seem to have a lot less control over things, and there isn't a definitive due date. We speculate and wish but that's about all we can do.
Patients. It's a whole nother beast when it comes to this process. But, it will all be worth it someday.
Be in prayer for our process. We would like things to move along but also need prayer for patients :)
