I am supposed to be at parenting school today and tomorrow. I’m not. Why not? Because I lost the form that we needed. I knew this so two weeks ago I called the adoption agency and said that we were coming and confirmed that the dates were August 5 and 6. Two days ago, just to make sure, I called again and confirmed that the dates were August 5 and 6 and confirmed the times. So this morning I was cleaning out my car in order to get ready for the 3 hour drive to parenting school. I found the form. The dates on the form are August 4 and 5. I called the agency but they weren’t in. I called the place where the classes are held and they confirmed August 4 and 5.

Because of other commitments we can’t get to another parenting class this year. They are only held every other month. So basically either we wait until next year or we switch agencies.

I called a local agency that did eventually return my phone calls when I was looking for an agency initially but they called after I had signed up with the other agency. We;ll see if they call me back. We’ll lose about $300 with the switch (agency fees and our non-refundable hotel room for tonight). But it will be more convenient to have a closer agency.

So it looks like we’ll be starting over from scratch.

  1. oh I am sorry to hear that, but look at it this way. For some reason you were set back. Perhaps it is because things need to work out yet for you to get the perfect child. If things move to fast or in a different direction that child might not be ready yet. Does that make sense. (Destiny is stepping in)

  2. I dont know what to say other than that I am very sorry for this delay in your adoption process

    you must be feeling so many different things including anger and frustration

    I wish you the very best
