But I did get some GREAT news!
I've got a tonne more information on the Special Focus program China is running now.
I've got a tonne of wonderful information on how much easier China is making it to adopt children (stuff like your China dossier is good for multiple adoptions so long as all adoptions are within 12 months of each other, blah blah blah)
I've found out there are many boys in the system who need good homes.
But I've also found out the following NOT so great news.
All those wonderful China improvements in placing children mean almost nothing because:
- our doctor did not check 4 little boxes in the wifes medical forms
- our paperwork is NOT accepted by Ontario yet
So what dose that mean?
That even if today, my adoption agency found a child, which we COULD be a great family for, they are unable to place that child in our care because of ONTARIO rules and regulations which are now outdated, a little less than useless and cumbersome. If China is trying to make it easier to adopt children, then so help me, our Government should follow suit.
So... after an emotional afternoon... where are we? Back where we started, but a little more educated.
I did however have a wonderful afternoon with our Adoption Agency. I mean, has YOUR adoption agency ever had their daughters cook you cup cakes while reviewing paperwork?!?! :-)
Thanks Grace and Grace! Yes, both their daughters names are Grace... I think we've covered how I feel about that. :-)
