This week we got a letter in the mail from our adoption agency. We are about 2 or 3 weeks away from getting an approval letter from the government of Ontario! So before we get that we have a few things to do:
We have to get 3 more reference letters (because the 6 references we handed in at the beginning of the process isn't enough :)
We have to send in our marriage certificate and passports for the 3rd time to get notarized again!
We have to go to the Guyanese consulate office in Toronto and sign a document in the presence of the consulate.
Once we have this done, and we receive our letter of approval then we meet with our agency for an approval session, where more papers will be signed and of course some fees will be paid :)
And then.......we wait for the okay from our agency to GO TO GUYANA!!!
That could take months, or weeks. It's up to the discretion of our agency. They will call the Red Cross in Guyana to determine if there is a chance there may be children available now, or if we should wait a few months....so I guess time will tell. But things are moving along again! If you'd like to pray for us, please pray for this baby that we haven't met yet. Most likely he or she is born already or just about to be born. It is a bit un-nerving knowing that your child is out there and you cannot protect them from anything for the first year of their life!!
