We might have something incredible coming our way. Maybe. We're trying not to get ahead of ourselves, but that's harder than I thought it would be.
We have preliminary approval to adopt a sweetums through the China Special Focus program. He is just over 2 years old, and absolutely perfect. Has a special need which we can't disclose just yet. It's minor in the grand scheme of things, although it is obvious (hence him being on the Special Focus list).
He's really, really cute and overall really healthy.
What happens now? We have a lot of work to do. Updated homestudy, re-fingerprinting, re-doing our dossier (well, creating a China dossier). Saving money like biggest tightwads on earth.
Once we have a new homestudy, a new dossier and new Hague-certified fingerprints we submit everything to China. They say yay or nay. Usually if preliminary approval has been given the powers that be say yay to final approval, but we haven't always had the best luck with things going smoothly (to put it mildly). We don't have a whole lotta faith left in the system, but maybe, just maybe, juuuuuust maybe.....
We can't let ourselves get excited. But we are kind of in love.
OK, not kinda. Totally and completely head over heels.
But not excited at all.
