Sigh... Update

We have a very small handle on what's happening with Korea right now. On one hand, yes, there is still a chance our child could come home sooner rather than later (we had recently heard that we wouldn't have a chance to bring our baby home until next year, which was devastating news). On the other hand, fees are up and will be due the very moment we accept our referral (child's file - in other words, it's when we say yes, we want to adopt this child that you're telling us is ready to be adopted). So, surprises around every corner.

The worst part is this: If we don't accept a child very, very soon, we will have to wait until 2012 or 2013 to have another chance, as the Korean government is pushing each year to end international adoptions (even though they are direly needed).

It's sort of a put-up-or-shut-up feeling that we are not enjoying, and are in fact, kind of panicking about.

Oh Lisa. Sending loads of deep breaths your way mama. It seems crazy that something so good has to be so hard.
