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.

New Count Down Date

Well, after having the week-end to grieve the time we've lost with Nola due to another PGN previo, I am ready to get back on this monster of a coaster ride and ride it through to the end.
Our coordinator let us know today that our lawyer was able to pick up our file on the 9th and resubmit it on the 10th. She didn't know exactly what the problem was that had to be corrected but it couldn't have been much due to the quick turn around.
Now we start all over again. Our file will go back through all of the channels starting with the first reviewers desk. Logical thinking doesn't apply in the world of Guatemalan adoptions. One would think that when PGN finds a problem with a file, the lawyer could correct the problem, show them it's corrected and then get approval. Oh wouldn't that be lovely.......and easy......but who wants easy when things can be made so complicated? ( I do ) We're now back to waiting another 4 to 8 weeks before our file can make it back through the reviews and hopefully to approval this time. Third time's the charm, right?
We are "praying" and "believing" that all is well now and our next call will be APPROVAL!

Not so patiently waiting.........Pam

Well, I am relieved to hear that it was a quick turn around. Even so, kickouts are so hard! I am hoping and praying that this is the last time and you are OUT pronto!
