Introduction To Our Adoption Journey

Ok, so I have just entered into the world of blogging, thanks to my sister Tanya( ironically an adoptee from Korea) and daughter Caroline for helping set up our families new adoption blog. I am not as computer savvy as they are so, I am grateful to get started journaling about our adoption process of our hopefully soon to be son or daughter from Kyrgyzstan. Family history and journaling is important to me so what a great way to remember things that might eventually fade in our memories.

Our adoption journey started back in November of 2007 when we signed with our agency and shortly thereafter started with our Home Study. The Home Study process was not to bad except it took so long to complete and get written up. Being one that likes to have things done in a timely manner this was my first lesson in patience. During this time and since our completed Home Study we have had so many changes including new country requirements for our dossier. So far this journey has been a lesson in patience, endurance, and letting go of any control you think you may have.
