Total Misunderstanding....

Oops. I feel like such a moron. I just found out that the long-awaited death certificate was never mailed. The sender thought that I only needed it for the embassy. So it is being held in Ghana until I get to the embassy! Unfortunately, I need it to file the I600 first. I had thought it was being mailed. It was finally obtained, but never mailed!

Not the sender's fault. Not my fault. Just a total misunderstanding. Either way, after the Easter holiday, it will be express mailed.

In more exciting news- I was lucky enough to meet someone who will be adopting from the same orphanage! And the child she is adopting is so special and sweet! I am just thrilled that he is going to get such a nice family!!

I have to admit it.

I am jealous.

Not just a little jealous. I'm talking about unbearable jealousy.

I have followed so many people's adoption journeys online. There is not one person who started this process the same time as me that hasn't had their kids home for months now. Months.

I'm glad their kids don't have to wait. I'm glad they have families. I'm glad they are finally home.

But what about my kids? They have lived in the orphanage for 5 years now. Almost a year and a half of that time I have been fighting to get them home.

I am tired. I ache for my children. I'm sick of being happy for everybody else. I want to bring my children home.
So there you have it. Pure, undiluted jealousy.
