Sorry to be so MIA. We appreciate all of you wanting to stay updated on our adoption and we have had some *stuff* going on with it lately, but honestly, I’ve been too depressed to write about it. Like mama says “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

It’s not THAT bad, I was just waiting for some really good news to share before I posted. Since it’s not coming, I’ll share some of what I do have….
I talked with our USCIS caseworker the other day and she says that she has everything she needs. When I asked about a timeline, she just repeated that she has everything so, I’m going to take that to mean that we’ll hear something very soon. We can then request an appointment with the embassy for a visa interview.
Our agent has assured us that we will have the passport AND correct birth certificate by the visa interview date (it sounds like interviewed are scheduled about 6 weeks from the request). That said, our agent will be gone to school the entire month of July and into August! That scares the begeezus out of me. It’s one thing to have faith in God, it’s another to have faith in another human who hasn’t necessarily been right on timelines during this process.
We’re ready for Coen to be home. Hopefully I’ll have some good news to share in the next few days!


  1. Praying for you guys, this is the hardest part of the process knowing that a special little someone is waiting for you and only paperwork remains in the way. Hang in there, it will come and then the real work will begin 😉 Remember that everyone has a guardian angel and our Faith in God can work through that person's angel! God can do ANYTHING even with people gone away at school! Spoil that cute little thing you have at home because soon he will be missing all the one on one time he has had over the years. Hugs and prayers!!!
