Before Brian and I were married, we knew that we would one day build family through adoption by adopting at least one child. Now, we are attempting to select which agency we will use for our adoption. We went to an informational meeting today at Children’s Hope International. So far, we have been to informational meetings at Missouri Baptist Children’s Home, Bethany Christian Services, and Children’s Hope. We plan to attend a meeting at Dillon International in the next few weeks. It is amazing how much has to be considered when selecting an agency.
For starters, I am affected by a rare skin disorder, called AEC syndrome (see www.nfed.org for information). We just found out that me being affected by the disorder may disqualify us from international adoption programs. Argghhh. And, if/when we do qualify, we have to face the hurdle of the fact that I don’t have fingerprints. Which will make immigration an issue. Arghhhh!
Look at the card I recently made for my husband’s grandmothers 90th birthday. Everything contained in it is original by me.
