We found out today that we were approved to adopt a waiting child, and adopt out of birth order. This is so exciting. I was talking to one of the staff I supervise when all of a sudden my phone rings. I see our social worker, and think hey hope this is good news. I scurry her out of my office to talk to my social worker.
Our worker tells me that they have waived the policy for us, and we can adopt a four year old boy inbetween Estifanos and Yordie. This means we should have a referral in the near future. Our homestudy was done today, our dossier has been accepted, and Brian will get CIS appoval tommorrow.
I am so excited to be an expectant mom one last time. I am excited to travelagain to bring home my son. I am excited for Estifanos to have a brother close to his age to hang with and grow with. I am excited to complete our family, and meet the son I have dreamed about. It is not exactly what I initially expected, but nothing in the adoption world is.
