Have Patience

My husband and I are very proactive people, so when we researched the international adoption process and it listed 3-6 months as the typical paperwork gathering period we assumed we would be in the 3 month group. We're now in month #3 and have yet to send in the CIS paperwork for our I-600A form. The process all makes sense, the time periods all seem correct, but I just wish our dossier would be scheduled to arrive in Ethiopia this month, but that doesn't look at all possible right now. We're waiting for the final home study document from CHI so that we can send it to CIS, and then once CIS comes through with an approval (6-8 weeks) everything can be sent to the US Secretary of State and then finally off to Ethiopia. It seems like an eternity.

"Have patience, have patience, don't be in such a hurry. When you are impatient, you only start to worry. Remember, remember, that God is patient too, and think of all the times that others have to wait for you!"

My mom rocks. She is The Queen of shower songs, morning songs, and THE patience song.
