Well, here we sit and wait. All of our paperwork is completely finished, reviewed and has been sent to DHR for their final approval. At this point we are waiting for DHR to say "Yes, this couple meets all our criteria and, yes, they have our approval to be adoptive parents."
The next step in the process, after DHR gives that final approval, is our new DHR case worker will begin to try and match us with kids needing to be adopted. We HOPE that since we have already identified two boys we would like to know more about that this next step will go quickly. In the event that the boys we have identified ARE a match, things could go very quickly.
HOWEVER, there are a LOT of issues that could make us not be a match for them and all we would be told is that "You're not a match." At that point, the search begins anew and we wait until God brings our children home.
Please continue to pray for us and our kids. We look forward every day to bringing them home and getting to know them. A friend told me yesterday that even with the adoption process you have nine months of waiting. True.
