The greatest experience, the one which shakes a soul with hopes and fears, the results of which are never ending, and incidentally, the one which pays the biggest dividends, is to be found in the adoption of children.

One Step Forward and Two Steps Back

That seems to be the way of the adoption world lately. Last week we heard that all three representatives had been appointed to the new Central Authority. This week however we just learned that two of the organizations are suspending their choices of representatives pending review of their appointment. Not quite back to square one, but almost. We'll just have to wait and see how long it takes to appoint new reps.
We also learned yesterday that our adoption coordinator has taken a new position at our agency. We will be assigned a new coordinator probably by the end of the week. We'll miss Ellie. She is so kind and I felt very comfortable with her overseeing our case. This will be our third coordinator for this adoption. Building trust in someone who has such an important role to play in our lives is difficult, but I pray our new coordinator will fit right in and make us feel at ease with the change.
Hopefully my next post will be a happy one. I'm ready for some happy news!

Wow! while I was posting, I received an E-mail which stated that both of the representatives have been appointed! That is fantastic news! The Central Authority will be known as the Consejo Nacional de Adopciones or CNA and will hopefully be meeting soon to iron out the details of registering in process adoptions. Just the bit of happy news I needed!
