We had our SDA appointment. It was nothing like I expected… much more relaxed than I expected. The first thing that the girl asked me was how old I was, when I told her, she laughed and said that she was the same age and couldn’t imagine having children. But, she was just curious!
Everything with Reed is as expected. He has no siblings and was born to a single mother.
Scarlett’s referral was a bit bumpier. She has two siblings. But, the lady doing our referral pulled it up on the computer and one was adopted by an American family and the second is in Ukrainian foster care. So, neither are available for adoption (this is a good thing for us!). We also found our that her special need is more severe than we thought. We are still trying to process what that means and doing research to understand it. If you happen to know what that special need is, please don’t post about it in the comments. You can email me if you want to talk to us about it or have something to share.
Please pray for Scarlett and us as we process this.
We will be traveling to their region tomorrow night and hope to meet them Wednesday or Thursday.
