More determined than ever!

Now that we've had a few days to digest the news.. we have had time to regroup and are more determined than ever to see this through. We are preparing our homestudy update and therefore will address their concern. Our agency will be in position to let us know in early August the new region to whichl we'll be assigned. We really have no preference...we just want our dossier to be accepted in order to travel to meet our child/children. We've therefore decided to try again. In the meantime, we are treating ourselves to extra vacation time with Yannik. He too deserves a break! I'll always remember what he told me when I told him we would have to wait a little bit longer for his sister. He said.. that"s ok.. we can the meantime... I'll play with you!" It's a good lesson to hear... so... we' re off on vacation to play together ;0))

A major "Bump in the Road"

This is a very difficult post to write. We were pretty shocked to find out today that the officials in Uralsk rejected our dossier and that we would have to re-submit our application to another region. We are told that it will delay our travel by 6-8 months as we prepare udpated documents. We're still hanging on to the hope that our daughter/sibling is out there waiting for us... we'll just have to be a tad more patient.
