Have you ever heard adoption described as a rollercoaster? Totally cliche, but totally true. It’s smooth sailing one minute and then a life changing drop comes along the next second. I’ve never felt that more then now. This process is becoming so difficult and unpredictable, that I’m afraid to say it…I feel a little like giving up and going home. I’m sure that attitude is influencing my interactions with my kids, which have been some of the roughest yet. Things were so easy and simple before, now they are so much more complex.
I need everyone out there to pray for visas. This should be the easy part, and it’s not. We need five (for myself and the two other moms that are here). They are not “forthcoming” (see, I speak Ghanaian now, and, I’m totally kidding). Visa appointment on Monday. Just pray.
