This Blog is Not Dead

Currently feeling overwhelmed by the many things in flux in our life. Haven't known how to write about it. Still don't know how to write about it. Now with the latest news about the new two trips policy to Ethiopia (once to appear in court, later embassy appointment approximately two months later), feeling even more overwhelmed. It'll all work out. Somehow. But currently? Overwhelmed.

I get it. I"m so sorry for all the turmoil. You guys, you, are in my prayers. I too, have all all these thoughts scrumbling around my head but need to get them to gel a bit....if they will?

Lori~ I"ve been thinking about all you guys who are in the middle of the process, and knowing how discouraging all these new rulings must be.

Hope to see you at the gathering on the 20th~

Our agency has told us that this is only a rumor thus far, and it is based on one agency's proposal to make this change. We were told that the proposed change may not happen and that all 7 federal courts would have to agree to it. In checking the Department of State's website, there is nothing saying this change has happened...only further scrutiny ensuring that adopted children are truly eligible to be adopted.

I hope this is the case!

My head is spinning. I don't know what to believe anymore. Sending positive thoughts to you. Oh and I miss your writing.

We are in the same place as you ... Lori. Quite overwhelming to adjust to these new plans. We have been hoping to take our 3 kids with us ... not sure how all of those plans look now. Amy

Sorry to hear, overwhelmed is not a great feeling, though I've known it a time or two. Hang in there!

Christine said...

So sorry for the overwhelmed feelings. Yes, this newest ruling from ET is a big jolt.

Miss you and your sage words on the interwebs! I hope the flux stops fluxing very soon.
