How to Use This Blog

A Wayfarer is a person who is traveling, a particular place, a circumstance, a stage of life, etc. Let's walk the road of adoption together. The journey is so much better with company!
Much of this information is useful for any adoption, but this blog is designed to be a
I hope this blog will be helpful to you in your adoption whether you are considering, waiting or home. I started this blog when we were adopting and found there was next to nothing on the web in any orderly manner. I set about to collect information for myself and then for others. Now, there are more sites for resources, but still not much that brings it all together. I hope this blog will serve as a sort of clearing house for Ethiopian Adoption Information. Please feel free to contribute your knowledge through commenting.
You can search by topic in three ways. 1. Go to the "key word" tabs on top and open pages of links in those topics. 2. Use the "labels list" in the side bar or 3. use the "search bar" above the labels list. You can also browse the blog by month and year in the Posts section or in any of the above as well. The sidebar links are to sites outside of this blog. While I feel they provide good information, I can not vouch for each site with an approval rating. Use your own discernment for each. If you have more to add to the topic, please add it in the comment section of that page or post.

CBI and progress

Monday I called the CBI office to check on our finger print cards. They were no where to be found. Later the nice lady called me and said she found them and it looks like they should be done this week. FBI too! Well, against all odds, they are in today! FBI still pending but Fri looks like a good possibility, hoping anyway. We pick up police clearance tomorrow. Dr. papers Fri and Mon. Review the final Home Study report Tuesday. Then off it goes to the state for approval and then we get a referral! Then we send our I600A (Homeland security/immigration forms for pre application for orphan adoption- Colorado now requires a completed home study to send this in. Lots of people just got theirs sent back because it did not have the home study in it) and the dossier (yes, we have to paperwork for that done) for certification and authentication, then it goes to Ethiopia and to their courts. We are praying that all court process' clear by the first of July. This would clear us to travel late summer. If it happens it would be against all odds. This we pray for. So far everything has been faster than expected. Holding my breath and praying. If not we go late fall. Going at all is what counts really. I just do not want my little boys to wait too long for their mama and daddy. How is it that you can love someone so much and you don't even know their name, or who they are. It is an amazing thing.
