Adoption on hold.
Well, due to some financial stuff, the adoption is on hold. At first I was so sad and disappointed. This means that we won't be able to travel with my sister. But then I started thinking maybe this has happened for reason. I think we are meant to adopt a waiting child. (For those who don't know, that means a child with special needs, usually minor). There are so many children who need a home who might not get one otherwise. So even though we have to wait a little longer, I am excited about it. So we will save up some money and ask our agency to keep an eye out for a child around Gracie's age with a minor special need and then submit our paperwork. The good news is that the wait is usually shorter, so it probably won't add that much time to our wait! We still need to think about what kind of special need we would be willing to accept. Probably a cleft pallate(SP?) or something like that.
