I can hardly believe that 4 weeks ago today we saw Naomi’s face for the very first time. Those big, beautiful dark eyes; her cute little feet covered by socks that are too big; lots of gorgeous black hair; the little chubby cheeks and beautiful mouth that long to be kissed; and her perfect little body that needs to be held in her mommy and daddy’s arms. She is just perfect in every way.
How I wish we had court news to share, yet here we are 4 weeks later and we have no court date. No end in sight. No idea how soon or how far away we are from bringing her home. I haven’t really worried about it much until two different people posted a note on the agency forum that they received their referrals in October and still don’t have court dates. One received her referral on October 12th and the other on October 21st.
Now, I realize that these families not having a court date after all this time doesn’t mean we’ll have to wait just as long, but it does make me wonder what is going on? How much longer will we be waiting?
One thing is for sure, there is nothing easy or predictable when it comes to International Adoption.
