I decided that the best way for me to get things accomplished was to set little goals along the way.
So this week, my goal was to make initial connections with Adoption Agencies and Adoption Agencies. I would love to have our applications by this weekend to be able to work on filling them out.
Yesterday, most of my day was spent on the phone leaving messages and then waiting...waiting...checking my email a million times...and waiting some more.
Then, finally, the phone calls began coming in! I think we have found the agency we want to work with and hopefully have the home study agent we'll be using. We just have a few more questions and details to get ironed out and then we can more forward.
Let's Take This Journey Together
In my attempt to find information for our adoption process from Uganda, I became quickly aware that there just isn't much out there. I wanted to create a way for all of us taking this journey together to be able to walk along-side each other. A place we can find other people taking this journey with us. A place to encourage each other during the journey. A place to keep up with the family after the adoption is finalized, because, let's face it, the adoption is only the beginning of this journey!
If you are in the process of adopting from Uganda and are blogging about your journey, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add you to the hopefully growing list of people who are bringing these orphans home!
