Wow, it's been a long time since I've blogged! I'm so sorry! I've had a hard time coming on here and posting something, knowing that some of you would see the new post in your email inboxes or on your newsfeed on FB and get all excited.......just to open it up and see that nothing's happening.
But it's been two months......I feel like I'm neglecting you! So, here's your "non-update" for the day.
No new developments, unless you consider us having to re-do all of our background checks, FBI clearances, doctor's appointments (for the whole family), and vet appointments for the dogs to be new developments. It's really just been a repeat of last winter - checklists and paperwork. Nothing too exciting.
It's all finished now, though, which is a great feeling. We got word yesterday that the overlooked piece of paperwork was just waiting final approval from Peter's government, and then we'd hopefully be moving on to the next step (it's called "matching approval" - where he's officially "matched" to us through a referral process, and then he's taken off of the open adoption list). We're hoping to have that approval by our birthdays (both in April). If that happens, then the paperwork delay would only have put us back a couple of months, not the whole year delay that was possible. Please keep praying - I know those prayers are helping us through this delay!
So there you have it - our non-update. We're still taking baby steps forward. It's not much, but it's enough to get us closer to our goal of bringing Peter home!
