Homestudy Update Done One Step Closer

Our favorite social worker was to our home yesterday for our update for China. It is always great to see her,she was the one who thought to make the call back in December that led us to Matthew.We talked and discussed all the things about bringing Matthew home. We certainly are not rookies when it comes to all this but still have questions she is knowledgeable and straightforward which we respect.Olivia was so excited for her to come and really embraced putting her best foot forward and spent more time then ever cleaning her room. Poor Maureen also had to see it and also talk alone with Olivia and give some pointers about being a good big sister.We have a picture of Matthew on the table and as I have said before each document gets us one step closer.
We are waiting for 2 documents to be returned to us and then our dossier will be on it's way. I am optimistic we may get them both this week. The preparer will get them all certified she is able to accomplish this in record time.
My original time frame for submission to the preparer was March 1 we may just be a little bit over that.Keep your fingers crossed.
On another note the situation in Krygz goes from bad to worse almost daily. While we are no longer involved if we had been a few months earlier we would be in the same position. There are 60 families that have traveled met and loved their children who are not making any progression to bringing their children home. This is due to government details which I can not begin to understand. It just simply is. I know there are alot of people who read and please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers. These children deserve better and to be home with their families who love them.
