Adoption Update


So, I know I haven't posted anything other than adoption updates lately and I might try to pump something more interesting out later but for now, take what you get. As of Monday, our P3 packet has been sent to Korea. What the hell is a P3 packet, you ask? Well, I'm not exactly sure but I think it's a packet of all Eunie's info and documents up to this point. Let's just go with that. Anyway, her stuff has been sent to Korea and had the permit gods bestowed an emigration permit upon us already, we would be traveling to get her in about 4 weeks. HOWEVER......

....we're still waiting on that permit. We are literally stuck in limbo right now, or as I call it, adoption purgatory. We can't move forward until this permit is issued but we have no idea when it will happen nor if we'll get one before they run out. It'll either be in the next couple of weeks or we have to wait until January. So in the meantime, I'm going to take up the tinwhistle like Picard up there and wait. The bright spot is that in a fit of energy last night, I dug up my old notes from Max's process and saw that his P3 was sent 10 days before they issues his permit so there is still hope. Play me out, Picard......

I have been talking myself out of emailing you for the past week because I wanted to know if you had any news but I HATE people asking if I have any news when I don't so it was this horrible limbo of wanting to know but not wanting to be a jerk and also, apparently, a lot of run on sentences.

In other news, I'll be hanging out in limbo with you because the woman in Lesotho who has to approve our request to adopt and approve us to adopt the specific kids we want is TAKING TWO WEEKS OFF! I mean, it's for her daughter's wedding but still. She's messing with my timeline yo. SHE'S RUINING MY LIFE.

My limbo involves a lot of alcohol though, so there's always that.

Kait, I'm sorry you're in this with me and how dare that woman take off. The nerve.

Oddly enough my limbo ALSO includes alcohol, but with a side of cheese. And by side I mean pound. Which I may or may not eat at one sitting. But yeah, the liquor helps.

Does your cheese come with really good bread? Because I find limbo is much more enjoyable with a side of carbs.

Limbo cheese always comes with a side of crusty bread. And maybe some pasta and a plate of olives.
