It's been yet another fairly uneventful weekend, quiet but not bad on the fun front. I am feeling a little more hopeful today about the resurrection of the agency. According to the steering committee, the proposal is about a week away from completion. We'll be able to look at it & vote on it soon, then it goes to the Ministry for review & to the court for approval. To know there's finally some movement with the proposal makes me feel a bit better. I'm sure it's been worked on ever since the meeting on July 30, but to actually here some news about it is a good thing. It feels like we're finally getting somewhere. Maybe this might happen overall. One of the bloggers I read, who is adopting from China, finally received her referral after almost 3.5 years of waiting (she's now mom to a 5.5 month old baby girl). I can't imagine signing on with a program thinking you'll have a referral within a year or so, then having referrals slow down to the point that it's 3.5 years from the log-in date before you get your referral. The amount of patience required in this "game" is astounding. Well, here's hoping it's a good week. Amazing to believe it's only been 1.5 months since the agency went bankrupt.
Here's hoping that everyone in the Ethiopia program is able to get a court date, if they don't already have one, and the court dates are successful so their children can come home soon.
