Another Colombian darling.
For those who might wonder what’s going on with our adoption, I’ve put together a time line of our adoption process to this point. People frequently ask us, “What’s happening with Zaza?“ And our answer is…. “we’re waiting.” It’s not comforting to be reminded of how long it’s been, but it is reassuring to know people care and are praying… and with each day, we’re one day closer to Zaza being home. Here’s the whole shabang:
Nov. 2006 Started looking at agencies
Feb. 12, 2007 Sent Application to Commonwealth
Jun. 14 Homestudy completed
May 9 I-600A Application sent
The Addendum was done to fulfill updating requirements, but also to increase the age of the child we requested from 3-5 years (which means she’ll be between 36 and 60 months old when we get her) to 3-7 years (meaning 36 to 84 months.) Somehow, two years ago when this all started, we didn’t take into consideration that our three children who are here would also be increasing in age….. duh! So we increased the age, thinking this could possibly speed up the process as well. However, we are confident that the Lord has Zaza picked out and she’ll be exactly who and what our family needs.
