Well, That Was Unexpected

Adoption Journey — Day 218

Ummm… so. Yeah.

Remember how I said the other day that our file was sent off to the government and we’d be waiting for 8-10 weeks for approval?

Yeah. Well.

Friday we received word that we have been approved by the Ontario government!


5 -7 weeks ahead of what we’d planned!

(Again, SQUEE!!!)


So, the lesson here is… Never underestimate the power of bureaucracy to surprise.

  1. Ohm my gosh, what wonderful news. What point does this put you at in the process? I am so excited for you. Could this mean new mystery baby might be home for Christmas?


  2. Thank you! This means, if we can get cracking on the legal-type documents, and I get my photo pages done, and BDH gets his final medical doc done — AND the BIG one, coming up with our massive last installment of fees — we could have a dossier off to the federal govt and then Ethiopia much sooner than expected. But I would not count on a baby before Xmas.

    Still, any progress is good. 🙂

  3. Ahhhh….. does that mean I might be a new Grammie sooner rather then later? So get cracking. Stop running around and get the lead out.Get that stuff done and sent in. Early in 2008 would be good for a new addition to the family. No seriously, I’m very pleased to hear that things are progressing for you both. Keep us posted.
