This Adoption

Otherwise known as what is driving me COMPLETELY MAD.
This adoption is taking forever. Nothing in a normal timeline. NOTHING!!!
We have our paperwork in India. With CARA. We are waiting on NOC. It has been almost 2 months. We are still waiting. We have typically gotten our NOC in 4-6 weeks. Not this time.
We are pretty sure that we got our paperwork to CARA to be classified as the current "backlog" of cases. India released new adoption guidelines recently and they are trying to clear all current adoption cases before moving forward. For some families (like our family) this has left us with questions as to how our case will proceed in the backlog. I hope so.
For now we wait. I'm trying to not go crazy. Its not working very well. Some days I just want to crawl into bed and stay there. I definitely don't want to go to work. But I just keep going. I go to work. I take care of things. I worry about Varsha. I just keep going.
I wish this would move. I wish I could move on with my life. I'm very sick of feeling like my whole life is on hold. So much will change when Varsha gets home. Our current routines will completely change. I'll be home more again. I get control of my house back. I get to do the things I love to do. I get to love on my new baby.
We would love prayers. We need alittle more money. We have our account set up with Reeces Rainbow to accept tax deductible donations.
Hoping for news soon.

Daughter of My Heart

Varsha Hope.
I miss you.
I love you so much that it hurts.
I want you home soon. Actually I want you home now.
Since the moment I saw your face, I knew you were ours. I so wish it wasn't taking you so long to come home. All of us miss you. Me and Daddy are very sad because you aren't with us every day.
I know that you are well cared for. I know that you are loved. It makes the wait bearable. I still miss you so much that it hurts everyday.
Sweetest Varsha Hope.
