Back in the Saddle!
Okay, first, a totally girly moment with very girly font color…oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh! Yesterday we got notified that our profile had been approved by AdoptUS all ready and that we could submit inquiries now. In the wee hours I finished our national profile (it took a while to find a pic that fit their size and didn’t cut half our faces off or other weird things). I then did 7 inquiries (we actually have 177 matches nation wide [!!], but narrowed it down to the states around us). A few hours later we all ready received three responses from case workers, all requesting information that I had to email my social worker for, since I’ve never received the completed forms yet. One response was from the case worker of the girl that actually sparked our decision to take this fork in the road!
I’m trying so hard to not get overly excited or expectant, since we’ve been there and done that with a lot of heartache, but when I sent an email in response to the requested info, explaining the delay while I work to get that information, I literally got tingles. So silly and so incredibly happy that we are able to work toward finding and getting Kiddo again. Never would I have expected to have gone this route, but I am so thankful that God gave me the courage to take this step. It’s terrifying to be handling all of this by myself, instead of having a social worker to mediate and do the main work, but I pulled myself up by the bootstraps and started the new path. I’m freaking giddy, despite knowing this could all come to just heartache. We have options and hope again.
Thank you for all of the support and encouragement! I wouldn’t have been able to make it to this path without it, so that God could then do His work. Although it’s still so scary, with God and all of you, I have actual hope again. My Fibro is being horrific right now, but for once I’m able to not focus on it and just be happy. I feel like that scene in Hook© where Tink has Peter think a happy thought and he learns to fly again. I learned to hope again. I don’t know what challenges we will face next, but I can’t help happily crying. It’s a beautiful, shining moment along this incredibly long journey. So please cross your fingers I can get our information from KS early next week and be able to send it on to the other case workers. And thank you, again, for being there throughout this. In our case it takes a village to get our girl and I’m thankful for this village.
About Georgia's Pampering
I had a tiny bath and body business which focused on pampering. Since the business had to close due to health reasons, I write post about a variety of topics, ranging from Invisible Diseases and being a Spoonie, to fun and DIY things.
I am beyond happy for you. The universe is being arranged, a path is being made, a way is being prepared. It may not be this child, but it will be the one that was meant to be.
