The Good Letter from Homeland Security!
After getting the dreaded pink letter that we were missing words in our home study, yesterday we received a letter saying we have been approved to adopt! Woohoo!
What does this mean? It means that we now have all the paperwork needed to adopt from Uganda. (At least I hope we have it all! I have to do another check to be sure!). Sometimes people wait months to get this! We are so blessed to have it before the holidays are here!
What's the next step? We now wait to get a referral. When a child becomes available for adoption who fits with our family we will be notified and then there will be a full investigation done on the child. They look into the child's background and family and try to make 100% certain that he or she can not be cared for by relatives.
So now we wait..Adoption is all about patience.
